NITER has a well-furnished Engineering Graphics laboratory with drafting instruments such as, Drawing board, T-Square, Triangles, Compasses, and Pencils etc.

Engineering Materials Lab

Engineering Materials Lab demonstrates the relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties of metals and their alloys used in engineering design and presents guidelines to assist the designer in selecting the right materials for a given job. To identify any defects in metal surface, we use Trinocular metallurgical microscope in our laboratory and introduce our students with different hardness testing method used for metal hardness testing like Rockwell hardness and Brinell hardness testing. By using Digital Muffle Furnace (DMF) instead of Open Furnace, students can safely practice without any accident while doing heat treatment in the laboratory. Our target in Engineering Materials Laboratory is to practically explain the preparation of a sample of metals and alloys for the experiment of microscopic examination and heat treatment process to get the better result. The Engineering Materials Laboratory is enriched with the following Instruments:

Ø  Trinocular Metallurgical Microscope

Ø  Metallographic specimen mounting press machine

Ø  Metallographic specimen Grinder & Polishing Machine

Foundry and Casting Lab

This laboratory is equipped with various welding setup such as Electric Arc Welding, Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Welding, Metal Inert Gas (MIG) Welding. This lab provides facilities to the students to get introduced with the casting processes to prepare the mold to create desired final shape by using pattern. Consequently, melting the metal, pouring it into a mold, and giving time to cool and solidify are also introduced. Students have the great opportunity to know the instruments and considerations used in foundry practice.

Available instruments

Drag and Cope, Pattern, Molding Sand, Rammer, Shovel, Trowel, Lifter, Crucible furnace, Riddle, Gate cutter, Tongs, Hack saw.

Solid Mechanics Lab

The Solid Mechanics Laboratory is used to conduct tests to identify materials, study their mechanical properties, analyse product and process failures through mechanical testing. It is well equipped with Universal Testing Machine (UTM), Impact Testing Machine, Analogue Force Displayer, Bending Moment Calculator, Rockwell and Brinell Hardness Tester, Twist and Bending Machine, Fatigue Testing Machine, and Column Testing Machine.

Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer Lab

Thermodynamics and heat transfer is one of the vital branches of engineering, where heat and temperature of any system or process is focused. Optimum production efficiency of a machine or process is highly depended on the smooth running condition. Heat and temperature are playing the key role for smooth running condition of machine. Industrial and Production Engineering department try to give essential and practical knowledge about thermodynamics and heat transfer for machine, production process and system with proper measurement of safety for the students.
