A drawing is the most important means of information and communication in engineering. 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 TZ 200.11 assembly kit is an interdisciplinary and practical project. In addition to the primary learning area of “engineering drawing”, it is also possible to deal with topics such as assembly planning and execution as well as measuring exercises. The assembly kit includes all single parts required to assemble a functional bending device.
The parts are grouped on a base plate so that individual assembly sequences are clearly displayed. Above the base plate is a transparent cover plate with a graphical representation of the assembly structure. The graphic symbolizes standard and production parts and displays fixed and moving connections differently.
The contemporary multimedia instructional materials are available online in the GUNT Media Center. The core element of the teaching materials is a complete set of drawings as files 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. The set of drawings consists of DXF files, STEP files and PDF files. The assembly video is also a useful feature.
The manufactured parts are precision-manufactured from original materials and with common tolerances and surfaces. The surfaces of the manufactured parts are burnished to prevent corrosion. All parts are clearly laid out and well protected in a storage system. Multiple storage systems can be stacked on top of each other, allowing space-saving storage.
