    Hello! My name is Maria Yureva. I'm a 4th year student of Belgorod State Technological University named after V.G. Shukhov (Computer Technologies in Mechanical Engineering of Building Material Industry).

    I have always wondered why in the building materials industry is relatively little space is given to machine for lifting? Flipped through magazines CAD, look at the huge posters in the design lab - all entirely deeply special equipment used only in the building materials industry. But there is also a machine for lifting, without which virtually every enterprise absolutely any industry can not do! Such machines and relates elevator LGNS-260, which lifts the material in the vertical direction by means of deep bucket. And I began my acquaintance with the elevator that's how.

    As a student-designer I needed to find machine drawings, which I will design. And began to search the Internet, trips to factories, but significant results to no avail: in the best case, you can find the drawings only a general form without detailing. Then I went to an old and good friend in another city who have a lot of other friends, without a drawing for the soul, and with ardent hope in your heart. And a miracle happened! The drawings came to me in full, and even in electronic form. Happy and satisfied, I went home.

    First, the elevator I was even more frightened by their size, and it was very interesting - if I have time to build and collect all in such a short time? However, as the saying goes, "the eyes to fear, but the hands are doing." Having examined the drawings and specifications, I walked into the Teamcenter, create a product structure established in Annex "Structure Manager" and opened NX.

    Teamcenter - a suite of scalable software solutions to support the life cycle of products that are based on an open PLM platform. Teamcenter enables you to communicate to all participants create a product intelligently managing, maintaining, distributing and enhancing intellectual property companies. In addition to work on the elevator it was used not just Teamcenter, and the SSP - a prototype of the standard solutions. This is a prepared set of settings and methods, providing the implementation of the most popular problems that can be solved in Teamcenter and NX systems. Comfortable and functional open the system settings did work on the elevator fast and productive, so that the diploma, with all its immense amount of detail, was ready on time.

    At all stages of product development teachers supervised the creation of the machine. top-level nodes selectively passed through the approval process. And now finally designed the elevator emblazoned on a realistic image of my diploma.

    My name is Arpad Kinka. I'm finalizing my studies in mechanical designing at Beszédes József MMIK secondary school in Kanjiza, Serbia. For my final work, I choosed an old sewing machine to create the CAD model of it.

     

    After sucesfully diassembled the dusty and rusty machine, I measured all parts of it with a caliper.

    I created some sketches with the actual size of the parts, and start to bring them to life again with Solid Edge.

    The main idea was a ''digital restauration'' . After finished the interior parts in Mulibody environment I've started to animate the assembled model. That was the hardest part of the work, because there are a lot of excentrical movements in one revolution. Finally, I managed to calibrate all parts to move in Solid Edge, as in the real life. You can watch it in the video, I attached below. 121 unique parts were used in the project for a total of 198 parts.

    Greetings, my name is Nikita Bogdanov, I am a fourth year student of the Belgorod State Technologica

    Greetings, my name is Nikita Bogdanov, I am a fourth year student of the Belgorod State Technological University named after Shukhov, I study at the Faculty of "Mechanical equipment" my specialty – is Mechanical Engineer and my specialization – is to use computer aided design systems in design of mechanical equipment, and I want to introduce you the topic of my qualifying, graduate work, which I will defend this year. Equipment that is used in my project - the rotary kiln for cement production.  Kiln - is the main process unit of any cement plant. And It is very important because klinker and cement quality depends on correct performance of this equipment.

     

    As the construction of the rotary kiln is very complicated, this qualification work was shared between 3 students with my uni-comrades (Konstantin Vavilov and Mikhail Shvec). I believe, working on this project will give us essential experience  that will us help in future professional activities. Though, each of us creates  different assembly units of one machine, it is very important to avoid mistakes in this process. The final result of our qualifying project depends on our well-coordinated teamwork.

     

    We began to work on this project ten  months ago, during a summer practice at the university, with the analysis of the equipment industry of building materials.   I carried out market analysis of this equipment and found products of leading Kiln manufacturers (Flsmidth, KHD Humboldt Wedag, ThyssenKrupp,  and others). We have analyzed advantages and disadvantages of presented examples. Kilns are different in the diameter and length, number of supports, design of the sealing device, the type of the support bearing and etc. Generally, Kilns have a number of drawbacks: the heat loss due to imperfect sealing device, the complexity of the repair, wear of tire and ring gear.

     

    Manufacturers produce both 2-base kiln (which is considered to be more progressive solution, because of lower metal consumption) and 3-base-kiln (it is classical solution and that is why it is quite easy to operate). Therefore, We proposed possible solutions of these problems, approved by university professors staff, aimed to improve disadvantages of the kiln.

    Then we formulated the goal of our project:

    -Create a unified digital model, which allows to control the structure of equipment and have two different types of kiln- 2-base-kiln and 3-base-kiln 4x60m.

    -Conduct improvement of assembly units of both kilns s in order to increase the efficiency of the kilns  based of patent search.

    We use NX, and Teamcenter  to work on our graduation project. Opportunities of the software NX and Teamcenter allow us to make all what we have planned before. In unified digital model, we will create two options quite different in design kilns: 2-base-kiln and 3-base-kiln. While these kilns are of equal size, but they have different designs:

    2-base-kiln have a friction drive, self-adjustable roller support

    3-base-kiln have a gear drive, tangential, tangential mounting of the tyre.

    These kilns have a different steel shells (order and number of shells)

    And both of them have the same supporting bearing, sealing and hydraulic thrust devices.

     

    After that, we developed the structure of our machine in the Teamcenter manager structure and divided the workload between each of us to have the implementation process of qualifying work more balanced. It is a very important, as the process of the structure development can be changed in extreme case. Here you can see assembly units and specification of our kiln made in Teamcenter structure manager:

    1)Rotary part of the 3 base-kiln, 2) Rotary part of the 2 base-kiln, 3) Ø400 Roller support of 3-base kiln , 4) Ø450 Roller support of 3-base kiln , 5) Ø400 Roller support of 2-base kiln,  6) Gearing drive, 7)Ring gear, 8) Under-Ring gear, 9) Friction drive, 10) Cold end seal, 11) Hot end seal, 12) Hydraulic Thrust Device.

     

    The finished components was revised by professors staff (technical control, compliance assessment, control of the project manager) with help of work process in Teamcenter. In case of mistakes, we discuss the problems with professors and improve parts and components until it finally approved, without the possibility of further changes.

     

    Our project contains 12435 parts, including 552 unique parts.

     

    In our work we also use a SSP -  prototype of the standard solutions. This is open data-model (prepared set of settings and methods) which Siemens PLM software deliver to users all over the world. In our work SSP helped us to adapt work of NX and Teamcenter to conditons of russian stantards - GOST and ESKD. Moreover SSP had great functional affecting process of creating drawings like automatic filling of labels on sheets. This features helped us a lot, and made process of implementation of our diploma work much more easy.

     

    Then, as part of the degree project we  developed design documentation on 2-base-kiln, conducted strength l conditions of the kiln body in CAE-Nastran  and made a set of working drawings.rotary kilnsrotary kilns

    My name is Terell Dunn. I'm majoring in mechanical engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I modelled a sequentially shifted, five speed manual transmission of my own design.

     

    The transmission is of the synchro-less, constant mesh type. Dog clutches are used to engage each gear. I included the center differential within the transmission. All of the gears' teeth were designed with true involute curve geometry using the table driven curve command. For the spur gears, a helix was used to sweep the involute tooth profile along the gear axis. A loft was used to create the tapered tooth of the bevel gears. 63 unique parts were used in the model for a grand total of 337 parts.

    In the lexicon of motor-fans it appeared the word "Dnepr". So called new road bike with a sidecar, created in Kiev Motorcycle Plant. In accordance with the methodology adopted by the people of Kiev have divided the development process of the machine in two steps. The first - is the construction, testing, debugging and manufacturing engine - more powerful and more economical. It is installed on the vehicle-part model is now manufactured. The second - the development of advanced vehicle-part, which is mounted already mastered, but a forced induction engine

    The engine crankshaft MT8 non-stackable (cast) of ductile iron. Lower head split connecting rods rotate on the sliding bearings (bushings), borrowed from the engine "Moskvich-408". Replacement pads are relatively simple, it requires on average after 50 thousand kilometers. Plain bearings are very demanding on the oil clean, so it is purified in a centrifuge mounted on the front of the crankshaft journal. Recall: the engine 750m K-rod bearings of the crankshaft are lubricated by feeding flowing from the jet pump. In MT8 oil supplied to these nodes at a higher pressure (2-4 atm.) With a pre-treatment in a centrifuge. This greatly reduces the wear of the friction surfaces and increases component life. Even when pressing on the foot control with a powerful pump to deliver oil to the lubrication points, making it easier to start the engine. The original pressure reducing valve bypass oil, preventing it is not mixed with purified centrifuge.Dnepr Motorcycle engineDnepr Motorcycle engineDnepr Motorcycle engine (cylinder not shown)Dnepr Motorcycle engine (cylinder not shown)Dnepr Motorcycle engineDnepr Motorcycle engineDnepr Motorcycle engine (Corps not shown)Dnepr Motorcycle engine (Corps not shown)

    Hi, my name is Vedanti and I am studying at Loughborough University in the Wolfson School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. This vintage camera was inspired by various models that exist on the market and was created using NX 8.5. I combined different features from these models to create my own design and that's why the model's name is comprised of my initials. 

     

    It was first designed on paper using exact measurements. This made it easier to create on the software. I used tools such as the pattern feature as well as extrusions and revolutions. 

     

    The pictures under the camera as well as the table were also created using NX. I wanted to stick to the theme of vintage when creating this image hence my use of the colors and textures of the materials. This render focuses on the intricacy of the lens. The lens was designed to be made with two different materials: metal and plastic and is a 50mm lens which allows for sharper and more focussed images.

    My name is Callum Bradley, and I currently study MEng Mechanical Engineering at the Ulster Univeristy in Jordanstown, Northern Ireland. 

     

    For a design project, that allowed me to incorporate motion and animation, I used my personal foot scooter, where I reverse-engineered its design, and incorporated my own ideas to generate the finished article as shown. I used many Solid Edge features to include protrusion, sweep, loft, sheet metal and surfacing to include sweep, blue surf tool and stitching to create parts, such as the foot brake. The swept feature in surface modelling was also utilised for creating the torsion spring for the foot brake. 

     

    With the scooter assembly complete, where the handle bars can be raised and lowered, along with the scooter being capable of folding up, KeyShot Render was used to create the life-like image as seen attached. Appropriate materials, such as aluminium, stainless steel and various plastics were applied to each parts with the environment and background adjusted accordingly. 

    This image shows the scooter when in a folded state, for being transported.

    In the picture drawn on the laptop and the process of rendering images in the Siemens NX program. Apply multiple backgrounds to bargain realism.

    Rendering is the process of generating an image from a 2D or 3D model (or models in what collectively could be called a scene file) by means of computer programs. Also, the results of such a model can be called a rendering. A scene file contains objects in a strictly defined language or data structure; it would contain geometry, viewpoint, texture, lighting, and shadow information as a description of the virtual scene. The term "rendering" may be by analogy with an "artist's rendering" of a scene. Though the technical details of rendering methods vary, the general challenges to overcome in producing a 2D image from a 3D representation stored in a scene file are outlined as the graphics pipeline along a rendering device, such as a GPU. A GPU is a purpose-built device able to assist a CPU in performing complex rendering calculations. If a scene is to look relatively realistic and predictable under virtual lighting, the rendering software should solve the rendering equation. The rendering equation doesn't account for all lighting phenomena, but is a general lighting model for computer-generated imagery. 'Rendering' is also used to describe the process of calculating effects in a video editing program to produce final video output.laptop in work roomlaptop in work roomlaptop and cappuccinolaptop and cappuccinolaptop renderlaptop render

    A gear pump uses the meshing of gears to pump fluid by displacement.They are one of the most common types of pumps  for hydraulic fluid power applications.

    Gear pumps are also widely used in chemical installations to pump high viscosity fluids. There are two main variations; external gear pumps which use two external spur gears, and internal gear pumps which use an external and an internal spur gears (internal spur gear teeth face inwards, see below). Gear pumps are positive displacement (or fixed displacement), meaning they pump a constant amount of fluid for each revolution. Some gear pumps are designed to function as either a motor or a pump.

    Generally used in:

    • Petrochemicals: Pure or filled bitumen, pitch, diesel oil, crude oil, lube oil etc.
    • Chemicals: Sodium silicate, acids, plastics, mixed chemicals, isocyanates etc.
