Welcome to MeDiLab©
The globalized research, the minimization of cost/produced unit and the maximization of quality constitute obviously in the creation of new products and services in the frames of competition and growth of industry the last but also the next decade. This tendency cannot leave anyone untouched, especially an Engineer of Production and Management.
Translating and materializing the above conclusion, in the frames of education of Engineer of Production and Management, MeDiLab© offers a line of undergraduate courses, capable of preparing the engineer for the future developments , studying the needs of today, taught from the last experience. Analytic presentation of courses that the Laboratory offers exists in the field Courses.
In parallel, MeDiLab©, pursuing to develop a remarkable and fertile researching cooperation with a width of businesses which act at completely different productive sections, offers services to sections of design, study, constructional as well as diagnostic interest. Its highly educated personnel, modern equipment and the collaborations that have been developed up to now, can guarantee an effective and fertile collaboration. Analytic presentation of services that the laboratory offers exists in the field Services.
MECHANICAL DESIGN II (MACHINE ELEMENTS)The aim of the course is to introduce the student to the analysis of typical mechanical structures, the strength of materials, the determination of critical operating conditions and wear, the composition, design and study of simple mechanical devices and generally the introduction of students to the main characteristics of machine components. Upon successful completion of the course the student will be able to:
- Understand how simple mechanical systems work.
- Understand the application of the basic principles of Engineering in the calculation and design of mechanical components and mechanisms.
- Recognize the common elements that make up mechanical systems and their components.
- Select the type, material and dimensions of the appropriate machine component for standard industrial applications.
MECHANICAL DESIGN I (MECHANICAL DRAWING)The course aims to introduce the principles of mechanical drawing, the basic regulations of mechanical design as well as the main design materials. The candidate engineer after the end of the course should be able to read and understand simple mechanical drawings and produce views and sections of basic mechanical components -systems.
TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS IN INDUSTRIAL FACILITIESThe aim of the course is to introduce the student to the analysis of common transmission systems such as belts (flat and trapezoidal), cogwheels (straight and endless screw-crown) and chains. During the semester the student will become familiar with the design and analysis of specific items acquiring knowledge about their dynamics, durability, construction and maintenance processes, etc. The course aims to introduce the candidate Engineer in the design, study and analysis of common transmission systems found in an industrial facility as well as their individual parts and to acquire skills that will help him understand other scientific areas of the specialty of Production Engineer such as in Robotics, Automated Control Systems, etc.
Production TechnologyThe aim of the course is to introduce the student to a) main machining processes (such as casting, forging, cutting, etc.), b) to the usual machining materials and cutting tools, c) to the main concepts of numerical control of machine tools (NC, CNC) and d) in concepts such as green production, Rapid Prototyping, Flexible Production Systems (FMS), Reverse Engineering, Modern Machining Centers, Occupational Safety etc. Also introduction to basic concepts of mechanical measurements (roughness, hardness, thickness, etc.), tolerances and standardizations. The course aims at the acquisition of skills by the candidate Engineer in order to perceive, supervise and guide respective processes and / or productions.
RELIABILITY AND MAINTENANCE OF TECHNOLOGICAL SYSTEMSThe aim of the course is to introduce the student a) to the basic concepts of asset management and maintenance plan formulation, b) to understand the role of reliability and its calculation methods and c) to risk analysis and management studies through fault analysis and failure history. At the end of the course the student should be familiar with concepts such as:
- Reliability and availability of technical system
- Technical system maintenance
- Maintenance policies
- Damage repair theory
- Risk analysis, analysis of failure types and fault tree
MECHANICAL DESIGN AND CIRCULAR ECONOMYThe aim of the course is the introduction to the principles of green production and in general to the methodologies applied in the modern production process in order to reduce the resources used and the pollutants emitted. Also, introduction to the principles of ecological design (eco-design) and reuse, recycling, redesign (3R) of a product. Interconnection and imprinting of the previous principles in the costing of the final product.
MeDiLab© in the frames of its inquiring activities can offer an amount of services to sections such as:
- Study, Design and Concretization of processes of certification of products (CE).
- Study, Design, Dimensioning and Evaluation of solar installations.
- Study, Design, Development and Manufacture of industrial models with application of modern designing methods (CAD/CAM/CAE/ERP).
- Development of specialized systems and software of follow-up of productive process, wireless control, deterioration and maintenance of machines etc.
- Non-destructive testing (Thermographic inspection, magnetic particle inspection, etc.), fault diagnosis.
- Technical and economical and/or feasibility studies of craft-based/industrial installations.
- Performance and safety testing of PV systems in accordance with European standards EN 50160 and EN 62446
