Azuko advisory on slowdown...

Slowdown in Automotive industry and manufacturing sector has raised a sense of uncertainty and doubt in the minds of students and professionals. Worrying about challenges is justified but only worrying about them is not justified. Azuko believes in converting challenges into opportunities. We do so by understanding the root cause, new direction of industry and we work in the new direction where industry is focused

In today's scenario, the root cause of the slowdown is phasing out of Internal Combustion (IC) engines and advent of Electric Vehicles (EV). Azuko also aligned itself to not only make its own EV but also opened the doors of EV for students to get trained on latest EV technologies. EV also opens wide areas of opportunities for domains like Plastic and Sheet metal. Azuko advices to gain expertise in these domains to be successful in current slowdown condition.

 

Yet another area which is booming across the globe is MEP, in which HVAC, Piping, Fir-fighting etc. are designed for a facility. It has become mandatory in European counties and UAE. Future is bright in this area.

Planning your career with only software knowledge (CAD, CAM, CAE) is not recommended as it poses serious risks during slowdown. Azuko advices to go with DOMAIN and engineering knowledge along with hands-on expertise on CAD tools being used in the chosen domain. Industry expects you to be expert in engineering and CAD, together.

In simple words:

Go for DOMAIN+CAD skillset in the industry, like

  • Electric Vehicle + CAD

  • Plastic DOMAIN + CAD

  • Sheet Metal DOMAIN + CAD

  • BIM-MEP-HVAC DOMAIN + Revit MEP

Acquiring any of above skillsets will align you to new direction of the industry. It will not only safeguard you during the slowdown, but also make a bright and enjoyable career for you. 

DOMAIN

TRAINING

ADVISORY

These are the highest level of training provided by industrial experts. This is pure specialized application of engineering for a given area of work. Currently we find four promising areas

  • Electric Vehicles design

  • Plastic Domain concepts & Design

  • Sheet metal concepts and Design

  • HVAC implementation on MEP 

 

Concept and application of GD&T is another premiere sounding but actually mandatory skillset any modern mechanical engineer must posses.

Below are the details for them:

 

PLASTIC

DOMAIN

Look around you to find out plastic products. You will be amazed by the presence. Take example of automobile industry, consumer goods industry, electronics industry, construction industry, sports, medical industry, or any industry, you will not have any industry which do not use any plastic product. Slowly it is replacing all metallic parts to reduce weight with added aesthetic appearance. Due to its ease of manufacturing, it is even more popular than it could have been imagined couple of decades back. In this era of plastic world, we recommend learning plastic domain to make a promising career as mechanical engineer.

SHEET

METAL

Look around, you would find many sheet metal products around. May be laptop, desktop, doors, windows, electric fixtures, and so many things to realize. It is most popular manufacturing material due to readiness of sheet metal in different types, size, materials etc. Todays industry provides wide range of opportunities to work in sheet metal segment of the industry.

ELECTRIC

VEHICLE

New era 0f engineering is collaborative multi-disciplinary design. Electric Vehicle is an engineering endeavor in which following types of engineers are engaged:

  • Mechanical Engineers

  • Electrical Engineers

  • Electronics Engineers

  • IT Engineers

  • Chemical Engineers

You can realize it when you think about making of an electric vehicle. As a mechanical engineer, you are responsible for power train, vehicle dynamics, body, cabin, BIW, enclosures, plastic trims, safety, and many such components which have been core forte of a mechanical engineers. Possibilities are again endless. Come, join the exciting journey of starting a new era of engineering. 

MEP

NEW ERA OF ENGINEERING

MEP is first collaborative colitis in which Mechanical, Electrical, and Civil engineers work together to create a collective solution to provide following latest solutions:

  • Air Conditioning and Piping 

  • Water supply and plumbing

  • Electric layout and power distribution

  • Fire detection and suppression

Industry is facing lack of skilled workforce. It is so because BIM based design is become mandatory for safety and quality. Ride the wave, make you career in MEP-HVAC.

GD&T

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is used for reducing cost, increasing quality and enabling global distributed manufacturing. It is a functional language used between designer and manufacturer. If you are either of them then you must know the language for effective communication. Isn't it?

Course Content

  • Introduction to dimensioning, tolerancing and GD&T

  • Datum, Datum features, And Datum target

  • GD&T Profile (14)

  • Feature control frame

  • Rules of GD&T

  • Bonus tolerance

  • 19 important modifiers in GD&T

  • Using software for GD&T

UNDERSTAND IMPORTANCE OF CAD CAM CAE

CAUTION: Learning only software will increase the risk of slowdown.

Azuko advices to go for DOMAIN + CAD. Learn suitable software for choose DOMAIN.

CAD Tools

Your mechanical industry expects following CAD, CAM, and CAE skills from you:

  • 2D Drafting (CAD)

  • 3D Modelling (CAD)

  • Manufacturing (CAM)

  • Meshing and Analysis (CAE)

Remember, these are software tools intended to work on engineering solutions. Therefore, learn these tools for a particular DOMAIN, and select tools which are used in actual industry. Below is generic advisory for all popular tools.

2D Drafting

(CAD)

It is used to draw different projections, views, sections, assemblies, etc. For all practical purposes (e.g., design, manufacturing, inspection, etc.) 2D draft sheets are printed and distributed. These are mostly drawn in AutoCAD. You must plan to be expert in same.

3D Modeling

(CAD)

3D models are most important in the industry. These are created for easy visualization, conflict validation of assemblies, constrained animation to confirm functioning, etc. There are multiple tools available in market. List of most prominent are given below. You must be expert of at least two tools to capitalize on available opportunities.

Manufacturing

(CAM)

Era of manual manufacturing is over. Computer Added Manufacturing (CAM) is a compulsion of current world. Look at any manufacturing plant video, you will find all machine, robots, tools etc. automatically manufacturing the components and assembling the final products. As a latest breed of engineers, you must learn CAM if manufacturing is your passion.

Meshing and Analysis (CAE)

After creation of 3D models, you would need to convert your models in to finite number of elements (called meshing) and then apply different boundary conditions and loadings. You apply solvers to perform computerized testing of the model. You must plan to expertise Hypermesh and Ansys to call yourself a designer.
