The ability to read and understand drawings, graphics and schematics is a fundamental element in the development of professional competence in all engineering disciplines. Linking engineering communication to the associated technical operations such as assembly structure, work plans and manufacturing is just as important.
The GUNT DigiSkills 1 learning project includes various model sets, from the simple geometric model to models with real function. With the model of the bending press in TZ 200.01, based on a concrete component and real functions, the topics of assembly planning and assembly execution as well as measuring exercises are handled in addition to the primary learning area “engineering drawing”.
The assembly kit contains all individual parts to be able to assemble a functional bending press. All production parts are precisely manufactured on CNC machines. They are made of original materials with tolerances and surfaces customary in mechanical engineering. The surfaces of the steel parts are burnished so that corrosion is avoided.
The parts are grouped in a storage system so that individual assembly sequences are clearly displayed. A transparent plate represents a structural grid with indications of the assembly process. The graphic symbolizes standard and production parts and shows fixed and movable connections differently.
The contemporary multimedia instructional materials are available online in the GUNT Media Center. The core element is a complete set of drawings in file form (DXF, STEP, PDF) with list of parts, single-part drawings, exploded views, assembly drawings and 3D drawings. All drawings are to standard and are dimensioned in accordance with production requirements. A selection of different worksheets with solutions completes the instructional material. The assembly video is also a useful feature.
