Manufacturing Technology and Materials (MECH 0011)-Spring 18-R-QP Assignment 2 – Spring- 2018 Module: Manufacturing Technology and Materials (MECH 0011) Level: 2 ID NUMBER Duration: 2 Hours Max. Marks: 100 Session: A Instructions    Explain your notations and steps explicitly and clearly. Marking scheme will consider not only correctness of your answers but also the clarity of your explanations.   The Case Study Case Study involves students taking apart a familiar product and determining the materials used for each separate component. An example could be a Belt Electric Sander. Students can undertake various tests to determine the materials that it is made from. In their reports the students can critically appraise the choice of materials selected and suggest alternatives. The students could analyze the design and possible methods of manufacture of each component. This activity illustrates to the student the integrative role that materials plays in engineering design and manufacture. Learning Outcomes: At the end of the assignment the students will:     Be able to formulate manufacturing procedures from raw material specification to end products, including design modification procedure. Be able to demonstrate an understanding of correlation between material property and manufacture process with aid of material microstructure concept. have developed information gathering skills have improved their written communication skills Assignment Brief The 'belt sander' consists of a number of materials and components produced by a range of manufacturing processes. Investigate and identify the materials used in the belt sander. Explain how you determined what (you think) the materials are. 1 Manufacturing Technology and Materials (MECH 0011)-Spring 18-R-QP    Why have these particular materials been chosen? Discuss what alternatives could be employed - why? What properties do they possess/need? How have the component parts been manufactured? Why has that process been used? What alternative processes could be used? What are the effects of the process used and the materials on the environment? Is the product recyclable? Mark distribution will be as following: Item 1 Topic Task Mark % 5 2 Introduction 5 3 formulate manufacturing procedures from raw material specification to end products demonstrate an understanding of correlation between material property and manufacture process developed information communication skills Conclusion 25 4 5 6 7 Total Mark 20 20 20 5 100 2 Note The topic should be relevant to the task Brief description on the product and general information. including design modification procedure With aid of material microstructure concept. gathering skills improved their written Brief outcomes from the assignment.

Electric power sanders are the best, snappiest, and most effortless approach to sand wood
smooth. So, they're the ideal approach to make a difficult task somewhat easier. There are a few
distinct sizes and kinds of sanders accessible. Most belt sanders have a clean dust sack or tidy port
for connecting a wet/dry vacuum.
For home maintenance, and general repairs a belt sander is one of the essential hand tools.
This tool is necessary for smoothening rough surfaces especially when repairing or making
furniture, or preparing surfaces for painting. Belt sander contains an electric motor that
continuously turns a pair of drums where a continuous loop of sandpaper is attached (Sumerau,
1982). Belt sanders may either be stationary/Fixed, handheld or moved over the material. A
stationary belt sander is mostly fixed on a workbench where the intended material is moved
through the sanding belt. In addition, Stationary belt sanders are sometimes combined with a disc
sander for high efficiency. Among the most visible materials of belt sander include the front
handle, the aluminum housing, a belt, trigger switch, belt striker bar, brush holder, dust holding
bag and belt track adjusting knob.
Belt sanders have a very aggressive impact on wood or any others used. And hence are
generally used only at initial stages of the sanding process, or used to remove unwanted material
swiftly. Thus, the need for aluminum housing and to minimize erosion from the friction
experienced. Belt sanders also have fine grit sandpaper that is used to attain a fully smooth surface.
Some of the alternatives of these materials include These belts may either be aluminum oxide or
zirconia and although both types work well, the majority of the users prefer the more aggressive
zirconia belts for coarser and 80-grit size (Hsu, Shao-Lung, C. H. I. U., & Lin, 2018). In spite of



the fact that aluminum oxide is additionally a decent decision, the utilization of belt sander is
chiefly to polish and wrapping up. Also, it is less expensive than zirconia.
Belt Sanders also produces a large amount of sawdust, especially when used on wood.
Therefore, most are fitted with a unique dust collection mechanism. This can generally be either a
large vacuum system to suck dust particles away into a central or a simple cloth filter bag attached
to the sander. In spite of the fact that not all have this, it is essential to search for a belt sander with
a connected clean pack inside. In addition to the fact that it would make your activity simpler in
cleaning after sanding, however, it will likewise avert tidy all around. This prevents the user from
inhaling the dus...
