Mechanical Power, Devices and Mechanisms

Course Code: ATMN 350

Academic Year: 2023-2024

This course is an introduction to the most commonly used mechanical power transmission elements, mechanical devices and mechanisms used by industry in automated production. The focus of this course is current directions and trends in machine design, plant engineering and manufacturing. The course will include mechanical power transmission elements, such as belt and chain drives, gear drives, bearings, and couplings and seals; motion control mechanisms, both continuous and intermittent; and parts handling mechanisms and end-of-arm robotic tooling used in automation and robotic applications. Solid CAD modelling will be used as a design tool for the mechanical devices being studied.
