The paper presents innovative approach for Automobile Assembly Process solution. The approach describes about production simulation for new products under development. This work leads towards the assembly process establishment for newly developed automobile vehicle and its control plan which compares to final production practices. In recent years Indian automotive business is expanding and with growing needs of fast new product development, the cycle time reduction becomes very crucial for environmental and economical reasons. Lean production assembly process and robust engineering process are optimized in this new approach. It’s an advance mechanism to identify process failures during final production setup. The experimentation has resulted to establish micro level study and the critical stages to be captured well in advances for better planning. This new approach takes care of all types of vehicles, product mix, end deliverables of vehicles in terms of quality.

Nickel electroplating is commonly used with substrates including steel, aluminum, plastic and zinc die-cast parts because of its high resistance to temperature, corrosion and wear in harsh conditions. To further enhance its tribological and mechanical properties, research works are going on to produce nano reinforced composites of Ni with various ceramic and rare earth oxides like CeO2, ZrSiO4, SiC, TiO2, etc. The aim of present work is synthesis and characterization of Ni films and Ni based TiO2 nano-composite coating processed by pulse co-electrodeposition technique. Also, to investigate the various properties such as mechanical, wear and corrosion resistance & thermal stability of Ni-TiO2 nanocomposites electrodeposited on steel substrate, especially the effects of the amount of nanosized TiO2 particles in Ni-TiO2 nanocomposites.

Material handling is a major section in all the industries especially for delicate and huge components. So here in TAFE Ltd, Chennai they are using pneumatics system to tilt the component so that operator will be able to do the further operation in the line. Pneumatic system needs electricity to operate. Due to frequent power shutdowns many industries are facing problem to run their manufacturing unit peacefully. As an alternate they are using generators which require fuel to generate power. This adds manufacturing cost and demand for fuel. So to avoid all this problem, dependability of energy resources has to be minimized. We planned to apply Karakuri kaizen a Japanese technology at machine shop of TAFE Ltd, Chennai with the help of my industry guide Mr. Saravanan A K and few of the industry officials. The system is completely fabricated and it is now running successfully in the industry without electricity.

Scuffing is an instantaneous gear failure, where flanks are welded together under pressure and temperature at high speed conditions. This is one of the common failure modes in manual transmission. Fig: Picture of scuffing near the gear tip High contact pressures are often experienced in high density power transfer gears at the tip and the root regions. These higher pressures coupled with higher sliding velocities and frictional heat generation makes the tip and root regions in the gear susceptible to scuffing. Gear geometry, operating speed, gear material composition, surface roughness and lubricant properties influence scuffing. A balanced gear tooth design with lower sliding velocities is often chosen as an approach to avoid scuffing. However, in the current scenarios of transmissions with high power density requirements achieving a balanced gear tooth design is seldom. Lubricants with higher viscosity avoid scuffing but has adverse effects on the transmission efficiency.

In order to minimize the development and production costs in the automotive industry, despite steadily increasing variety of models and applications offered by the OEMs, the pressure on standardization of components and production processes is increasing continuously. As a direct consequence, modular engine families are already established with high degrees of equal parts and kits as well as standardized interfaces for all vehicle platforms with most manufacturers these days. At the same time, the world adopted and announced massive legal demands concerning the reduction of CO2 emissions for the entire vehicle fleet. In addition to the optimization of the combustion process, the exhaust gas aftertreatment and thermal management, the use of improved and more resilient materials for higher reduction of mechanical friction leads to a significant amount of the realized lowering in fuel consumption resp. CO2 emissions.

Abstract Life-cycle assessments (LCAs) conducted, to date, of the end-of-life phase of vehicles rely significantly on assumed values and extrapolations within models. The end phase of vehicles, however, has become all the more important as a consequence of increasing regulatory requirements on materials recovery, tightening disposal restrictions, and the rapid introduction of new materials and electronics, all potentially impacting a vehicle's efficacy for achieving greater levels of sustainability. This article presents and discusses selected research results of a comprehensive gate-to-gate life-cycle-inventory (LCI) of end-of-life vehicle (ELV) dismantling and shredding processes, constructed through a comprehensive and detailed case study, and argues that managing and implementing creative dismantling practices can improve significantly the recovery of both reusable and recyclable materials from end-of-life vehicles.

Standard
AMS4130N
This specification has been declared “NONCURRENT” by the Aerospace Materials Division, SAE, as of August 2009. It is recommended, therefore, that this specification not be specified for new designs. “NONCURRENT” refers to those materials which may have been widely used previously and which may be required for production or processing of existing designs in the future. The Aerospace Materials Division, however, does not recommend these specifications for future use in new designs. “NONCURRENT” specifications are available from SAE upon request.

The aviation, space, and defense industries rely on the development and manufacture of complex products comprised of multiple systems, subsystems, and components each designed by individual designers (design activities) at various levels within the supply chain. Each design activity controls various aspects of the configuration and specifications related to the product. When a change to design information is requested or required, the change has to be evaluated against the impacts to the higher-level system. Proposed changes to design information that the design activity identifies to be minor and have no effect on their product requirements or specifications have the potential to be concurrently implemented and approved, where authorized to do so. Changes that affect customer mandated requirements or specifications shall be approved prior to implementation.
