Nanocomposite Aluminum for Aerospace Applications
Nanocomposite materials are attracting researcher community due to its excellent and thrilling outcomes. Metal nanocomposites, specifically Aluminum nanocomposites, are practiced by aerospace industry due to its high strength to weight ratio and exceptional wear resistance. Every year one project based on nanocomposite material is carried out in Mechanical Engineering Department.
Aluminum nanocomposite was formulated by stir die casting with reinforcement of alumina-zirconia (Al2O3-ZrO2) nanocomposite particles. Samples were made by varying composite of nanoparticles reinforcement. The invented nanocomposite was found excellent in tension and wear resistance. Thermal conductivity also increases but with thermal stability. The nanocomposite was proposed for applications in air-frame, aircraft bearings and manifolds.
Aquaponics- An Agro-Fisheries Project
It is a fascinating project for agriculturist, gardeners, aquarium keepers and engineers. Aquaponics is a system which cultivates fish and plants simultaneously. Fish waste is used as fertilizer for plants and plants bed filter the water to provide clean and oxygenated water to the fish. Aquaponics system recirculates the same water by filtering multiple times with the help of a submerged water pump and a bell syphon. Plants are growing in stone bed, used for water filtration. This system is getting very rapid acceptance among concerned researchers as it covers all aspects of STEM education.
This project is executed under the guidance of JMES Secretary Mr. Rashid Mukhtar by a team of faculty members and students. It is expected to be a potential solution of irrigation water crisis.
Automatic Fabric Dying Machine
Malegaon is a textile hub and its economy revolves around the textile market. However, the inertia of old technology has retarded the economic growth of the city. The cotton and textile processing has various stages, dying being one of the most critical and significant stage. Till date, dying process is not carried out at Malegaon which drastically decreases the profit margin of the textile producer.
MMANTC is continuously studying and analyzing such problems related to the economic and social welfare of the city. In the Department of Mechanical Engineering, this problem is critically examined and sorted out by a group of students and faculty members. Finally, an automatic fabric dying machine is designed and fabricated to demonstrate the dying process successfully. It is expected that this project will enhance the sophistication of the textile industry along creating many jobs in the field.
Wireless communication using Li-Fi
Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) is a new paradigm in wireless optical communication technology in which light is a medium of data transmission between the devices. High speed data transfer and communication is executed by using light. It is expected that Li-Fi technology can transmit data at 100 GB/sec or higher. Li-Fi technology uses LED light bulbs to access internet with very high speed, energy efficiency and safety.
In this research project, a Li-Fi dongle (transmitter) and speaker (receiver) for audio and music applications are designed. This frontline technological project is successfully designed and run by the faculty and students of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering Department.
DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF POLYMER ROLLING MILL
The research presents improved design of a Polymer rolling milling machine. Polymer rolling mill is the machine now a day which is used widely by the polymer industries to mash up nano-material and rubber get the different with these two nano-particles. It is mostly used for laboratory or experiment to form new polymer by adding different nano-materials. This project focuses on a mechanically feasible & innovative design involving in different sensors, roller, belt derive and for feed cross slide feed mechanism are used. In this project we are using two rollers with gap between of 0.2mm to 4 mm as we want different thickness of the polymer. By this project we will perform experiment for the different polymer with respective with shape, size of the material.
In the construction of the design it is expected to use indigenous technology and to increase efficiency, minimize cost and maximize profit. The machine was designed to use the main drive shaft as means of speed reduction. The necessary gear pairs are designed on the basis of functional requirements. It is very cheap to maintain.

Smart Road Cleaner
This project was carried out for institutional use to maintain cleanliness in the campus. Its function is so simple that a single person can clean the whole campus in few minutes. An array of brooms is formed in 360o on a circular plate, which rotates through a differential gear as the wheel of cleaner moves in forward direction. The operator is needed to just grab the handle and move the cleaner all over the space to be cleaned.
This project was first built in China and is replicated at MMANTC recently.
