The apparatus basically consists of a steel shaft mounted in bell bearings in a stiff rectangular main frame. A set of six blocks of different weights is provided and may be clamped in any position on the shaft, and also be easily detached from the shaft. A disc carrying a circular protractor scale is fitted to one side of the rectangular frame. Shaft carries a disc and rim of this disc is grooved to take a light cord provided with two cylindrical metal containers of exactly the same weight. A scale is fitted to the lower member of the main frame and when used in conjunction with the circular protractor scale, allows the exact longitudinal and angular position of each adjustable block to be determined. The shaft is driven by a 230 volts single phase 50 cycles electric motor, mounted under the main frame, through a belt. For static balancing of individual weights the main frame is suspended to the supported frame by chains and in this position the motor driving belt is removed. For dynamic balancing of the rotating mass system the main frame is suspended from the support frame by two short links such that the main frame and the supporting frame are in the same plane.The exciter unit to D.C variable speed motor. RPM of motor can be varied with the speed control unit. Speed of rotation can known from the RPM indicator on the control panel. It is necessary to connect damper unit to the exciter. Amplitude of vibration can be recorded on strip chart recorder.

Metrology and Measurements Lab
The Metrology laboratory at SRIT is to provide the students with an active learning environment for the measurement technologies used in production engineering field. Students use the laboratory to collect and analyze measurement data, evaluate measurement methodologies, and learn the capabilities and limitations of measurement technologies. Co-ordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) is a computer controlled CMM consisting of a contact probe and a means of positioning the probe in three dimensional space relative to the surface of a work part in order to obtain the data concerning the part size and geometry. This machine is used to Dimensional measurement, Profile measurement, Angularity or orientation, Depth mapping, and Digitizing or imaging. An autocollimator is an optical instrument that is used to measure small angles with very high sensitivity. We can also use autocollimator to verify the accuracy of a rotary table, comparison of work angle with standard angle block, verification straightness of movement along machined rails and determine flatness of surface plates. Tool Maker’s Microscope is used for measurement of parts of complex figure profiles of external threads, tool templates and gauges.
The Mechatronics Lab provides state - of - the - art facilities and experimental setups to learn and enjoy the field of mechatronics. Modern society depends on mechatronic-based systems for modern conveniences. Mechatronics Lab is equipped with Hydraulic and Pneumatic Simulation Software it enables the user to design hydraulic and pneumatic circuits and to obtain both quantitative and qualitative results rapidly and accurately. Electro Pneumatic with PLC is successfully used in many areas of industrial automation. Production, assembly and packaging systems worldwide are driven by Electro-pneumatic control systems. A Programmable Logic Controller can be conveniently used to obtain the out puts as per the required logic, time delay and sequential operation. Finally the output signals are supplied to the solenoids activating the final control valves which controls the movement of various cylinders. The greatest advantage of electro pneumatics is the integration of various types of proximity sensors [electrical] and PLC for very effective control. Servo controller using open/closed loop system analyze, design and optimize complex systems which consists of highly integrated coordination of mechanical, electrical, chemical or pneumatic elements. Process Control Trainer (Flow/Temp/Pressure) The Pressure, Flow, Level, and Temperature Process Training Systems introduce students to a wide range of industrial processes, as well as to their instruments and control devices.
