INTRODUCTION
A promise is promise and I kept my promise- this is the historical statement which Mr. RATAN TATA said when he launched his ambitious TATA NANO; the peoples car in India on 23 rd march 2009. Tata has always given value products in the Indian Car Market whether it is path breaking recently launched TATA NANO or TATA INDICA (which created great brand into the car industry in the diesel segment).

TATA GROUP OF COMPANIES


The Tata group comprises over 100 operating companies in seven business sectors: communications and information technology, engineering, materials, services, energy, consumer products and chemicals. The group has operations in more than 80 countries across six continents, and its companies export products and services to 85 countries. Every Tata company or enterprise operates independently. Each of these companies has its own board of directors and shareholders, to whom it is answerable. There are 31 publicly listed Tata enterprises and they have a combined market capitalization of about $80.61 billion (as on July 12, 2012), and a shareholder base of 3.6 million. The major Tata companies are Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Tata Power, Tata Chemicals, Tata Global Beverages, Tata Teleservices, Titan, Tata Communications and Indian Hotels. Founded by Jamsetji Tata in 1868, Tatas early years were inspired by the spirit of nationalism. Tata Industries was set up by Tata Sons in 1945 as a managing agency for the businesses it promoted. Following the abolition of the managing agency system, Tata Industries' mandate was recast, in the early 1980s, to promote Tata's entry into new and high-tech businesses.

What is Engine Mount?


Engine mounts hold a vehicles engine in place on the frame. An engine mount is just that it mounts the engine to a vehicle. It keeps the engine from moving or shifting out of place while the vehicle is operating. If a mount becomes worn out or broken it can allow the engine to move excessively providing a rougher ride. If allowed to persist extra strain will be put on the other mounts increasing their chance of failure, allowing the engine to come free in the vehicle causing very costly repairs.

Structure
An engine mount consists of two attached metal parts with rubber in between. One side of the mount is bolted to the engine while the other
GLOBAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Page 15

ENGINE MOUNT NOISE

2012

is attached to the frame. The rubber in the center absorbs vibrations while allowing a small amount of movement.

Function
The engine mount keeps the engine secured, prevents it from vibrating excessively and ensures that it stays properly connected. It also keeps vibrations from traveling through the frame and other parts of the vehicle. Malfunction Engine mounts may malfunction due to the bolts or rubber on the mount being cracked and worn. The symptoms of a faulty mount include excessive shaking or vibration from the engine and thumping noises from under the hood. If symptoms indicate the engine mount is not secure, it should be replaced right away to avoid damage to the engine. The Engine Mount acts as a transition between the motor and the surrounding components, and allows installers to secure the motor within the device. The right motor mount can extend the life of the device while the wrong mount may result in excess vibration and a shortened lifespan for the engine. When choosing motor mounts, take the time to match the type of mount with the application in order to maximize its performance.

Types of Engine Mounts:Rigid Mounts


In a rigid mount, the motor mount is attached to the frame of the device with fasteners or bolts. Some rigid mounts may even be built into the vehicle or equipment or permanently welded in place. According to "Electrical Construction and Maintenance" magazine, rigid mounts are most often used with small motors rather than large ones.
GLOBAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Page 16

ENGINE MOUNT NOISE

2012

Rigid mounts provide the most accurate alignment between the motor and the surrounding mechanisms, but may be damaged by vibration under heavy-duty operation.

Resilient Mounts
Resilient motor mounts feature a layer of rubber or insulation between the mount and the motor. This material helps to reduce noise and vibration, which may extend the life of the motor and related parts. Resilient motor mounts also allow for some flexibility and movement without compromising the performance of the motor. According to "Electrical Construction and Maintenance" magazine, these mounts are often found in larger motors or in applications where excess noise or vibration could be problematic. These mounts also help to reduce the impact as the motor starts and stops, which minimize shock to the surrounding system.

Hydraulic Mounts
Hydraulic, or hydro motor, mounts contain some form of gel or liquid to help absorb impact and vibration during operation. This may include glycol or hydraulic fluid, or any other types of fluid substance. This type of mount is often used in four-cylinder motors, which produce large amounts of vibration or noise. They may also be used with other types of motors when noise levels must be kept to a minimum.

Face Mounts
In a motor designed for face mounting, or NEMA "C" mounting, the motor attaches directly to the surrounding components without the use of a standard mount. Often, installers will use a NEMA "C" face mount adapter in order to adapt a face-mounted motor to a vehicle designed for another type of motor mount. In this type of mount, the bolts on the motor pass right through pre-drilled holes in the motor casing and into the surrounding components or devices.

ENGINE MOUNT NOISE Mechanical problems caused by bad Engine Mount:


Excessive Engine Vibration

2012

Motor mounts help to keep a vehicle's engine anchored securely inside the engine compartment. Bad motor mounts, especially broken motor mounts, frequently allow a vehicle's engine to move or shake excessively; causing excessive engine vibration, which often gets transmitted into the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Abnormal Engine Position An engine that appears lopsided or out of alignment relative to its normal position is normally an engine, with broken or severely damaged motor mounts. In addition to securing an engine within the vehicle hood compartment and stabilizing its movements, motor mounts serve to keep an engine aligned and positioned properly to allow for adequate engine operation, and adequate operation of all of the supporting mechanical devices underneath a car's hood. Bad motor mounts can allow an engine to sag or tilt, a situation that is easily spotted by a diligent individual.

Engine Damage
In extreme cases, bad motor mounts can totally lose their structural integrity and allow a vehicle's engine to shift excessively to one side, especially during rapid engine acceleration or at high rates of speed, which can allow various mechanical engine parts, including pumps, pulleys, and diaphragms to contact the vehicle frame and break.

Broken Belts/Hoses
In addition to broken engine parts, bad motor mounts can cause damage to an engine's belts and hoses. If bad motor mounts allow excessive engine movement or tilting, various engine fan belts and/or radiator hoses can be

damaged or broken, especially under heavy engine acceleration when engine movement is most pronounced.

So, what is Engine Mount Noise?


Many times bad or broken engine motor mounts will cause loud or excessive engine noise, usually knocking or clanking types of noises. These types of engine noises are usually the result of the engine block pounding or bumping against the broken or damaged motor mounts that have lost their snug fit against the engine. The engine of Magic Iris and Ace Zip is rear drive type. The engine is mounted/ supported on four mounts, namely A, B, C and D.

ENGINE MOUNT NOISE

When the engine is started, it produces torque. Due to the torque produced by the engine, it vibrates. If the mounts on which the engine is mounted are loose, broken or not fixed in correct position, it produces unwanted noise. This outcome comes in the form of metal-metal clanking noise. Usually, this mount noise are found and solved in the UNDER PIT section of the TCF shop. Then the vehicle goes for road test. After road test, any further mount noise which was not found in the U/P section is found and repaired.

ENGINE MOUNT NOISE Proposed Solution:

2012

Here at TCF-1D, I was trained by the Line-supervisor to identify the root cause of mount which can be reduced by proper functioning during fitment process. During fitment due to human error or by some other way in Under Body section, mount noise can occur. So proper care need to be to eliminate it. For resolving the problem mentioned above a standard procedure is followed during the fitment of mount at trim line. The procedure is in the form of Work Sheet. It is as follows:

WORK SHEET Subject: Fitment of B-mount Model: All ACE ZIP & MAGIC IRIS Sl. No. Step1. Step2. Step3. Step4. Step5. OPERATION SEQUENCE Pick B mount and hand tighten it in the BIW (Body in White) with 4 Nos. of MBX22 Hex. Flange screws. Tack these bolts and torque tighten these bolts with torque ranch at 2.3 KgM. Pick up the central bolt and fit it into the hole of B mount and engine bracket and hand tighten it. At the quality gate check whether the screws are there & are tight or not. Torque tighten the central bolt of B mount with torque ranch at 7.7 KgM. Avoid over tightening or applying torque more than required.

WORK SHEET Subject: Fitment of C-mount Model: All ACE ZIP & MAGIC IRIS Sl. No. Step1. Step2. Step3. Step4. OPERATION SEQUENCE Pick C mount and hand tighten it in the BIW (Body in White) with 3 Nos. of MBX22 Hex. Flange screws. Tack these bolts and torque tighten these bolts with torque ranch at 2.3 KgM. Pick up the central bolt and fit it into the hole of B mount and engine bracket and hand tighten it. At the quality gate check whether the screws are there & are tight or not. Torque tighten the central bolt of B mount with torque ranch at 4.5 KgM. Avoid over tightening or applying torque more than required.

Step5.

After following the above mentioned procedure 20 vehicles were monitored, which are as follows:
SL. No. 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) 9) Vehicle No. MAT491005CJG26351 MAT491005CJG26352 MAT491005CJG26353 MAT491005CJG26354 MAT491005CJG26355 MAT491005CJG26356 MAT491005CJG26357 MAT491005CJG26358 MAT491005CJG26359 U/P(Under Pit) R/T(Road Test)

10) MAT491005CJG26360 11) MAT491005CJG26361 12) MAT491005CJG26362 13) MAT491005CJG26363 14) MAT491005CJG26364 15) MAT491005CJG26365 16) MAT491005CJG26366 17) MAT491005CJG26367 18) MAT491005CJG26368 19) MAT491005CJG26369 20) MAT491005CJG26370

We see that after following the procedure, the no. of vehicles with mount noise has reduced.

Major reasons which caused are:


The body parts which are sent from BIW are not properly fabricated. The line man of TCF-1D are not using proper means like torque wrench for the fitment of Under Body. So, over tightening case become prominent.

Page 27

GLOBAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

ENGINE MOUNT NOISE


Hence I observed that:
Testing and inspection should be carried out at every quality gate. Tightening of nut and bolt should be proper. By using automation and precise machinery.

2012

The assembly parts should be manufactured by advanced manufacturing processes in Vendor Company. The training and motivating policy should be applied to workers. Kaizen should be applied. Job rotation policy should be applied.

Possible further aspects in the project:


WHAT CAN GO WRONG ANALYSIS: By doing this one can also find the root cause of the untraceable line problems and take suitable steps towards its elimination and thus TML TCF-1D shop can assure nearly perfect fitment for the car .

CONCLUSIONS
After analyzing the problem, in the Under Body section (Magic iris and Ace Zip) the mount noise was eliminated with positive results.
