SEMAR UGM Ikuti KMHE 2015

Tim SEMAR UGM terus menunjukkan komitmennya untuk melakukan inovasi terkait dengan produk-produk hemat bahan bakar dan ramah lingkungan. Hal ini dibuktikan melalui kompetisi mobil hemat energi berskala nasional, Kontes Mobil Hemat Energi (KMHE) 2015, kategori Prototype Diesel, 21-25 Oktober 2015 lalu.

Dalam kontes ini mobil Proto Tim SEMAR didesain dengan body se-aerodinamis mungkin dan berkonsep streamline untuk mengurangi gesekan dengan udara. Body SEMAR Proto berbahan serat karbon yang materialnya ringan namun tetap kuat. Steering ditempatkan pada bagian kaki sehingga dapat memperluas ruang pandang driver, sehingga dapat mempertahankan stabilitas mobil ketika berbelok.

“Konsep streamline ini berfungsi untuk mengurangi gesekan dengan udara,” kata Ketua Umum Tim SEMAR, Mochamad Agam Dridya, Kamis (26/11).

Agam menjelaskan pada Kontes Mobil Hemat Energi 2015 yang diselenggarakan oleh Direktorat Jenderal Pendidikan Tinggi, Tim SEMAR dapat melalui serangkaian uji teknis yang terdiri atas 12 inspeksi, seperti static dan dynamic braking, stability, safety, dan lain-lain. Setelah itu, pada pengujian konsumsi bahan bakar di sirkuit, tim berhasil mendapatkan juara 2 untuk kategori Prototype Diesel dengan pencapaian konsumsi bahan bakar 267 km setiap liternya.

“Tim SEMAR juga mendapatkan juara 3 untuk Off-track Award Best Vehicle Design Process & Planning,” urainya.

Tidak hanya aktif mengikuti berbagai kompetisi, tim SEMAR juga telah banyak menciptakan berbagai inovasi baru yang dapat digunakan dan dirasakan langsung manfaatnya oleh civitas akademika UGM, seperti mobil listrik E-Semar yang saat ini digunakan untuk operasional di gedung pusat UGM.

Tim SEMAR tidak hanya berinovasi dalam desain dan pengembangan kendaraan-kendaraan di atas, tetapi  juga terlibat aktif dalam desain dan pengembangan Mobil Gas UGM, converter kit UGM generasi 1-4, dan  riset mobil listrik nasional (Molina). Inovasi-inovasi di atas adalah wujud kepedulian dan aksi nyata dari tim untuk memecahkan permasalahan energi dan lingkungan. Tim SEMAR UGM dibimbing oleh Dr. Jayan Sentanuhady, dan pada tahun 2015 beranggotakan 13 mahasiswa Departemen Teknik Mesin dan Industri Fakultas Teknik UGM, yaitu : Mochamad Agam Dridya (Ketua Umum), Reyhandy Bayu A. R. (Ketua Divisi Teknis), Fauzan Imaduddin (Sub Divisi Design & Manufacture), Riz Raharyan (Sub Divisi Design & Manufacture), R. Hasta Wiratna (Sub Divisi Design & Manufacture), Gilang Prasetya Adi (Sub Divisi Engine), Laksatya Wirawan (Sub Divisi Engine), Akbar Andi W. (Sub Divisi Electrical), Stella Nadya Arvita (Ketua Divisi Project Management), Safira Pralampita Larasati (Sub Divisi Internal), Pramesti Ayu Dwi Wulandari (Sub Divisi Eksternal), Elok Pitaloka (Sub Divisi Eksternal), M. Fachmi Alfarizi (Sub Divisi Eksternal) (Humas UGM/Satria;foto: Tim SEMAR)

Formula Car Bimasakti Takes Part in Greeting Freshmen

Bimasakti team of UGM once again creates formula car for the fourth time. This time, the said team, led by Rifqi Bustanul Faozan, will compete in The 12th Student Formula SAE Competition 2014. The competition will be held in Japan from 6-11 September.

The launching was attended by thousands of freshmen enrolled in Engineering Faculty of Universitas Gadjah Mada, as a part of freshmen orientation event titled PPSMB PRISMA. The purpose of the launching was to introduce Bimasakti UGM to the freshmen as well as to inspire them to create something while enrolling in Faculty of Engineering. Aside from that, the Bimasakti team was asking for blessings and prayers from all the freshmen so that the team can achieve well in Student Formula SAE competition. Formula car Bimasakti also did a testdrive circling around the Faculty of Engineering Central Office (KPFT) afterwards.

Different from the previous Bimasaktis, the development of the 4th generation was conducted with maximizing the engine of the car and lessening the weight of the car. Even though the engine used is still the same with last year’s Honda CBR 600cc, but the engine’s performance is more enhanced this time around. The contruction of the car is also re-designed into a lighter but stronger one. This re-designed construction successfully takes out 15kg weight from last year’s Bimasakti. This weight-lessening process was conducted to increase the car’s acceleration when it takes off.

“This year we are emphasizing on the acceleration and the endurance of the car, and we did enhance it. This car is capable to cover the distance of 75 metre within 4 seconds”, said Gisneo Pratala, the General Manager of Bimasakti team, when interviewed at the press conference.

Aside from technical problem, this year’s Bimasakti team is also more geared up in terms of non-techincal things. The funds for the production and the team’s transportation is more prepared and thus more fulfilled, as the result of the supports from many sponsors. The budget to produce the car is also lower compare to last year’s Bimasakti, even though some parts, like wheel from Italy, were imported from overseas with a better quality.

Bimasakti team hopes for an improved achievement from what the previous teams had. “We hope this year we can achieve better than last year. If this year’s result is satisfying, we hope to step even further to the Student Formula SAE in Germany, because this event is not only conducted in Japan,” said Gisneo.

“SEGER”, the Mechanical Engineering Fun-Biking Event

To celebrate the 55th anniversary of the Mechanical Engineering Department, the KMTM Student Alumni division, headed by Galih Primayoga (TM.12), and Dr. R. Rachmat A. Sriwijaya, S.T., M.T, the Committee Chairman of our departments 6th lustrum work together to create a series of events. The series of events is opened with The Mechanical Engineering “ Sepeda Gembira (SEGER)”, a casual routed biking activity. With the theme “Segerkan Pikiranmu” (refresh your mind!), this event received good response and feedback from the university, faculty, students, and the public itself. Even after more than 1.000 tickets were sold, demand for tickets kept coming from people who want to participate in this event.

SEGER turned out to be a complete success for opening the series of events in the Mechanical Engineering 6th Lustrum. Held on Saturday, September 6th 2014, the west wing of Graha Sabha Permana UGM was crowded with more than 1500 happy and enthusiastic participants with their bicycles. Food trucks and drink booths are neatly lined up on the sides of the west wing jogging track, with a music stage at the end of the track to entertain the participants of this event.

This event started off at 07.00 A.M and ended right before noon at 11.00 A.M, just as the committee planned. By presenting some student music bands and ofcourse some Indonesian traditional art, the Angklung for entertainment, the event kept the vibe of the participants through the day. And for the climax of the event: a motorcycle, 3 mountain bikes, and 2 units of 32-inch TV’s are grand door prizes for the lucky participants.

The event was opened with a speech from the Chairman of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Prof. Ir. Jamasri, Ph.D and Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Prof. Ir. Panut Mulyono, M. Eng., D. Eng. Followed by the release of 55 balloons to mark the opening of the series of events in the Mechanical Engineering 6th Lustrum. And with the cutting of the ribbon, the participants start pedaling off on the route, which is ± 12 kilometers until the finish line. This event is sponsored by PT PLN (Persero), Unit Pembangkit Jawa – Bali, Solaria, PT Wirabumi as the main sponsor, and many more sponsors that couldn’t be mentioned one by one. Last but not least, we thank Yudhistira Candra Kurniawan (TM.12), for his persistence and hard work as the Chief Executive Coordinator of SEGER who designed the epic concept of this successful event.

But we’re not done yet, there are more events to come in our 6th Lustrum: The Mechanical Super Cup, National Seminar on Manufacturing, CEO Talk, Alumni Grand Congress, Vibration and Acoustics National Seminar, Mech Some Noise, and many more. Don’t miss them!
