Aims

The aim of the course is to enable students to design and plan the manufacture of assemblies for real machines to:

- Meet the customer’s requirements, including functioning correctly.
- Be designed with the manufacturing and assembly processes in mind.

Outline Of Syllabus

Determine reaction forces and effects of loads.
- appropriately apply knowledge in design projects

Design appropriate shafts & rotating shaft assemblies, including:-
- Select appropriate rolling element bearings & standard mechanical components.
- Select appropriate engineering materials.
- Select appropriate designs for batch manufacture.
- Produce (individually) detail design of complete assembly using hand-sketching & 3D CAD, that is:-
- complete and ready to be “sent for manufacture”
- fully functional
- easily (economically) manufactured
- has a full set of drawings with:- all necessary views
- all necessary dimensions
- all necessary tolerances
- all necessary material and manufacturing details

Produce practical and economical manufacturing process routes for typical components and assemblies:-
- for manufacture singly, by the thousand and by the million (per year)

Appropriately use engineering science, manufacturing technology and manfacturing planning to design, built & (publically) test a real structure.
