Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera.. Maaf sebab lewat sedikit buat entri ini.. Sibuk nak pindah rumah punya pasal.. ^_^.. Ok, untuk hari terakhir kami di FKP, kitorang kena buat lawatan practical ke semua lab yang berada di Advanced Machining Centre (AMC), FKP, UTeM.. Maaf sekali lagi sebab entri kali ini, Bahasa Melayu dan Bahasa Inggeris dicampur bersama..
Mula-mula kami pergi ke makmal Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) Die Sinking Operation. - The sinker EDM machining ( Electrical Discharge Machining) process uses an electrically charged electrode that is configured to a specific geometry to burn the geometry of the electrode into a metal component. The sinker EDM process is commonly used in the production of dies and molds.
Selepas itu kami pergi pula ke makmal RAPID PHOTO yang menggunakan FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING (FDM) MACHINE.. - Prototyping or model making is one of the important steps to finalize a product design. The fundamental process involves heating a filament of thermoplastic polymer and squeezing it out like toothpaste from a tube to form the RP layers. The machines range from fast concept modelers to slower, high-precision machines. The materials include polyester, ABS elastomers, and investment casting wax.
Makmal yang keempat kami lawati adalah Makmal Milling.. Operasi Milling adalah menggunakan Conventional Milling Machine. - Milling is a machining operation in which a work piece is fed past a rotating cylindrical tool with multiple cutting edges. The axis of rotation of the tool is perpendicular to the feed direction. The tool is called the milling cutter and the cutting edges are called teeth. Mostly plane surfaces are created through milling.
It's an interrupted cutting operation; the teeth of milling cutter enter and exits work piece during each revolution. So, the tool material and cutter geometry must be chosen carefully to withstand cycles of impact forces and thermal shock.
Dan, yang terakhir.. Kami semua pergi melawat ke Makmal kimpalan/welding.. - Welding is a materials joining process in which two or more parts are coalesced at their contacting surfaces by a suitable application of heat and/or pressure. SHIELDED METAL ARC WELDING (SMAW) is an arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode consisting of a filter metal rod coated with chemical that provide flux and shielding.
Terima kasih.. salam dari pantai timur.
