Computer Integrated Manufacturing

  • Affiliated to Kerala University
  • Approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE)
  • 2 year Post Graduate Programme ( 4 semester)

TKM College of Engineering was the first college in Kerala to start M.Tech Programme in Computer Integrated Manufacturing which has been offering this M.Tech since 2006 with the aim of promoting graduate engineers to seek specialization in the field of Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing. The course functioning efficiently and has contributed many projects of technical importance.
As the name indicates it is the manufacturing with the help of computers to connect physically separate processes involved in complete manufacturing from the raw material to the finished product. Hence there is automation which allows decision to be made faster with least error and without requiring intervention.
A student qualifying this programme can enable to search the following fields of employment

  • Product Development
  • Design Modeling
  • Software packages of Manufacturing
  • Automated Manufacturing
  • Customer support
  • Quality Management
  • Automated Inspection
  • CNC Machines and Systems
  • Production processes
  • Planning and Control
  • Inventory control
  • Demand Forecasting
  • Co- ordinate Measuring Machines and Systems(CMM)
  • Material Handling
  • Flexible Manufacturing Systems
  • Machine Tools with Electronic Control
  • Business Processes Engineering
  • Management Information Systems
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Process Planning
  • Work flow Automation and simulation
  • CAD – Computer Aided/Automated Design – Design geometry, dimensions, etc.
  • CAE – Analysis of the design done in the CAD system for stresses, flows, etc.
  • CAM – Computer Aided/Automated Manufacturing – is the use of computers to select,
  • setup, schedule, and drive manufacturing processes.
  • CAPP – Computer Aided Process Planning
  • for production, machine selection, tool selection, etc.
  • PPC – Production Planning and Control – also known as scheduling.
  • Robotics and systems
  • Manufacturing Facilities Planning
  • Work Flow Automation , Industrial automation
  • Network Management

The Course has an intake of 18 students, strictly according to university of Kerala regulations and about 5 batches had successfully completed up to this year and got selected them among various Engineering colleges as faculties, as expert Design Engineers in Industry & some students are continuing with their Research at Prestigious organizations like IIT’s , CSIR labs etc.

50% of the student’s intake is based on the rank list provided by Director of Technical Education and remaining students are allocated as per management direction based on merits.

Admissions are according to government regulations to include socially and educationally backward community and SC/ST students as per government norms.

  • The programme is conducted in four semesters.

Laboratory

Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) Laboratory provides students with many challenging hands-on experiences such as manufacturing design and control. It is the state-of-the-art laboratory consisting of various equipment classes including material processing class – computer numerically (CNC) controlled machine centers (mill and lathe), material handling class – industrial robots,3 Dimensional measurement systems. The CIM Lab is also featured with a rapid prototyping machine to facilitate efficient design process system.

CNC Machines

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines are automated milling devices that make industrial components without direct human assistance. They use coded instructions that are sent to an internal computer, which allows factories to fabricate parts accurately and quickly. Our CAM lab is equipped with HAAS USA vertical Milling machine and CNC Lathe.

CMM

Coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) are mechanical systems designed to move a measuring probe to determine coordinates of points on a work piece surface. They provide precise measurements of objects for design, testing, assessment, profiling, and reverse engineering of parts. Machines are available in a wide range of sizes and designs. They use a variety of different interfaces and modeling software. TESA Microwhite 3D coordinate measuring machine is available in the Lab.

 

PLC

A programmable logic controller, PLC is a digital computer used for automation of typically industrial electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or light fixtures. Our lab includes of Mitsubishi PLC with DAQ.

Rapid Prototype

3D Printing is now the most common name given to a host of related technologies used to fabricate physical objects directly from CAD data sources. These methods are unique in that they add and bond materials in layers to form objects. While 3D printing has displaced rapid prototyping for top honors, that term is still quite popular. Such systems are also known by the names: additive manufacturing, additive fabrication, solid freeform fabrication (SFF) and layered manufacturing and many others. A desktop Rapid prototype machine is available in our CIM lab.

CAD/CAM Centre

The CAD/CAM Lab is available for the development of designs utilizing both 2D and 3D Software. Besides training students, the CAD Centre is also used for consultancy / Project Work.

CAD/ CAM Center consists of

Computers and printers

  • Dell High end work stations :5
  • HCL Work stations: 14
  •  DELL Server :1
  • Laser Printer

Softwares

  • SolidWorks
  • CAMWorks
  • ANSYS
  • AutoCAD
