Industrial Visit of B.Tech Fourth Year Mechanical Engineering Students
B.Tech Final Year (2014-18 Batch) Students of Mechanical Engineering went for an industrial visit to industries located in Visakhapatnam during 08-10 July 2017. The students visited three industries - Synergies Castings Limited, TATA Beverages Limited and Nandan Cleantec Industries Limited.
On 8th July 2017, the students visited Synergies Castings Limited, which is the pioneer and leader in the manufacturing of Aluminium alloy wheels. The students went through the various sections involved in the manufacturing of alloy wheels - alloy ingot, sophisticated melting furnaces, state-of-the-art precisely controlled low-pressure die casting (LPDC) technology, heat treatment, CNC machining, testing & inspection and electroplating system. Currently, Synergies Castings Limited supplies alloy wheels to several automobile majors.
The students, on 10th July 2017, visited a beverage industry that prepares the various flavours of TATA GLUCO+ energy drink. It was a completely automated industry and hygiene was given utmost importance. On the same day, students also visited Nandan Cleantec Industries Ltd., which synthesises bio-diesel and refined glycerine.
The visit was a wonderful platform for the students that related academics with the latest and innovative practices followed by these industries. A total of 42 students visited the above companies and were accompanied by department faculties - Mr. B. Bangarraju and Mr. K. Bhanu Teja. The students would like to express their sincere thanks to the Management and to the Human Resource Managers of the above companies for giving them an opportunity to visit these companies. Special mention about Mr. N. Kali Prasad Varma (2015 passed out student of Mech. Engg., VIT, BVRM), who is currently working as Graduate-Engineer Trainee at Synergies Castings Limited, for his support during the visit.
