MT 140.02 Assembly exercise: piston compressor



  • Practical assembly of an industrial compressor, using simple tools and jigs
  • Broad scope of learning with interdisciplinary problems
  • Comprehensive and well-structured instructional material


Technical Description

The MT 140.02 kit contains all the parts required to construct the compressor. The compressor fits are designed so as to allow the complete assembly process to be carried out by hand. All parts are clearly laid out and well protected in a sheet-steel tool box. Small parts and tools are contained in a box with a transparent plastic lid.

The nature of this assembly exercise permits wide-ranging, and in particular, interdisciplinary work to be carried out by the students. The exercise is particularly well suited to action-based teaching, in conjunction with students working both independently and in teams.

The well-structured instructional materials set out comprehensive and in-depth technical information which forms the basis for the teaching process. The teaching material included consists of a complete set of drawings with parts lists, individual part drawings, an exploded view and assembly drawing. All drawings are to standard, and dimensioned in line with production requirements. The comprehensive set of transparencies for the overhead projector is another very useful feature.

The fully assembled compressor can be tested for functionality using  the optionally available MT 140.01 test bed unit. Interactive learning software (MT 140.20) supports effective learning by means of graphics, animations and vocal support.

Learning Objectives / Experiments

- design and function of a compressor 
- reading and understanding engineering drawings
- familiarisation with components and assemblies, their design features and functions
- dimensioning exercises, gauging of parts
- work planning, particularly planning and presentation of the assembly process
- familiarisation with assembly aids and jigs
- assembly exercises: component and complete unit assembly
- analysis of faults and damage, in conjunction with maintenance and repair steps
- material selection criteria
in conjunction with MT 140.01
- functional testing of the assembled compressor
