Tilting Engine Components, Locomotive Engine


The modern manufacturing system demands for increase in productivity, safe operations with fewer efforts in less cost of operation. In industrial sectors, in India, placement of component is a major factor specially in Locomotives. Transportation affects the production rate, cost and hence the profit of the company. Placement/mounting of products requires time. Hence, to make the process of mounting more easier, we design a Turn Over Device which will work in less available space and thus reduce the time required to Tilt the loads from one machine to another. The project discusses the mechanisms used to tilt engine of locomotive from vertical to horizontal position. This project gives an idea about designing of this turn over device by considering ergonomics and safety.
