The Strength and Measurement laboratory at the Ort Braude was opened in 1995. It is located at the ground level of the central building of the college in Hall D108. It occupies a space of more than m2 in close proximity to the Computer Aided Design laboratory (Hall D107) and the Control Laboratory (Hall D109).
The laboratory was established in order to provide our students with knowledge and hands-on experience in the area of data measurement and collection in the field of mechanical measurements .Israel's most important industry - the HiTech industry depends heavily on the ability of engineering universities and colleges to provide their students with modern and updated equipment to accompany their theoretical studies. The laboratory presents the students the different methods of mechanical data measurement and collection, material strength research. These methods are applicable for process and quality control implementation They allow to obtain information about products ,materials and processes by the most exact way: by means of accurate and precise measurement.
The Laboratory serves students in the department of Industrial Engineering and Management and department of Mechanical Engineering. It is used by undergraduate students for carrying out supervised assignments.
I. The set of common manual dimensional measuring instruments:
II. Three dimensional Coordinate Measuring Machine BHV-M544
III. The set of optical tools and devices:
IV. Sophisticated Digimatic Material Testing system LR- (Lloyd instr. production)
V. Experiments in mechanics with strain Gage series:
VI. Hardness Rockwell – Brinell dial tester.
VII. Photoelasticity measuring set.
VIII. SPC station.
