Innovation Laboratory

Innovation Laboratory is the centre for innovation projects from the initial idea generation to final fabrication for product development and creative exploration. This involves all stages from idea generation, design selection, detail design, computer aided design (CAD), computer aided manufacturing (CAM), computer aided engineering (CAE), ergonomics analysis, machine design, design optimization, prototype development, testing, and final fabrication. The laboratory is equipped with a wide range of softwares from design, optimisation and analysis. The laboratory also fully utilise the open source systems for 3D printers, CNC machines, and reverse engineering application. The laboratory is open for partnerships with industries, research institutions, and innovative startups to drive collaborative innovation projects forward.


Equipment .

An assembly exercise piston compressor to enable students to learn:
– functional testing of a piston compressor
– pressure rise in tank over time
– current consumption of drive motor as function of pressure
– familiarisation with a compressed air generator and its components
– function and mode of operation of safety elements: safety valve, pressure switch, non-return valve
– professional installation of the compressor in the test device, including setting and alignment

Gunt Germany ET 412 C

A data logger multifunction instrument to measure the microclimate in moderate, hot, severe hot, cold environments and the measure of physical quantities. It is provided with 8 inputs for probes equipped with SICRAM module and a back-lighted graphic display. It has been designed for microclimate analysis in the workplace; the instrument is used to detect the necessary parameters to establish if a certain workspace is suitable to perform certain activities.

Deltaohm HD32.1

A miniature of a cooling tower designed to allow students to learn about the processes related to industrial force draught cooling tower.
