The joining of the elements is ensured by the welded bead,<br>which is a solidified quantity of material which allows the continuity of the crystalline structure of the<br>material. In this paper, some basics about the welding of plastic materials are presented, as well as a 3D<br>graphics modeling of a butt-welding machine achieved using Autodesk Inventor design environment. At the<br>same time, in the software programme, the heating element modelling is carried out, namely, the electric<br>hob with thermoregulator. This type of welding machine is used in a large number of applications and<br>requires a proper design and dimensioning of the elements for ensuring reliability, strength, design<br>flexibility, and low processing costs.</p> 2019-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Journal of Industrial Design and Engineering Graphics http://www.sorging.ro/jideg/index.php/jid/article/view/487 PROXI INDICATORS USED FOR PRODUCT ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT 2020-02-22T15:27:18+00:00 Lucian Bârsan lbarsan@unitbv.ro Anca Bârsan abarsan@unitbv.ro <p>The paper is focusing on the necessity of assessing the products in order to evaluate their<br>negative environmental impact. This activity is part of the design strategy meant to identify the existing<br>products’ weak points in order to optimise the future designs. The environmental assessment can be<br>performed using a large range of instruments, among which the category of Proxy Indicators covers an<br>important area. The Eco-indicators are Proxy Indicators used mainly for comparing solutions. This paper<br>shows how this instrument can be successfully used to compare existing products with the new designs.</p> 2019-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Journal of Industrial Design and Engineering Graphics http://www.sorging.ro/jideg/index.php/jid/article/view/488 HOW TO DESIGN A REPRESENTATIVE LOGO FOR A CITY 2020-02-22T15:27:18+00:00 Nicoleta-Elisabeta Pascu nicoletaelisabeta_pascu@yahoo.ro Victor Adîr victoradir@yahoo.com Ioana Teodora Costache teodora.cos94@yahoo.com Nicoleta Voineagu nicoleta.voineag@yahoo.com <p>It is not easy to create a logo, as identity graphic representation for a city. It is a work of study<br>and graphics, using many information about the theme. And, of course, symbols, signs and colours to<br>convey an interesting message to the people. This paper presents an experience of the authors concerning<br>the designing an identity for a city, by creating a logo. As it is known, logo is like a signature of something<br>and has a power” to make present the absent” [5]. It was a challenge to put together in a creative graphic<br>representation the past, the present and the future of the city and to harmonize the rules and the demands<br>of the competition to this representation.</p> 2019-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Journal of Industrial Design and Engineering Graphics http://www.sorging.ro/jideg/index.php/jid/article/view/489 COMPARATIVE ASPECTS OF PROFESSIONAL INVENTOR 2018 VS. 2020 ON OBTAINING 2D DOCUMENTATION 2020-02-22T15:27:17+00:00 Adrian Mihai Goanță Goanta.Adrian@ugal.ro <p>This paper presents a brief description of the novelty elements that come with Inventor<br>Professional2020 compared to Inventor 2018 applicable in mechanical design. It should be mentioned that,<br>some of the most common commands for 3D modeling and obtaining 2D documentation were chosen, in which<br>the similarities and differences were studied, by applying them to the most representative pieces in [1], the<br>specialized documentation. Works published by colleagues from the department [2], [3], [4], [5] were selected<br>for the study. The choice of the two versions was based on the current situation of the existence of educational<br>licenses for both versions in the Faculty of Engineering and Agronomy in Braila. The second part of the paper<br>presents some aspects on how to achieve 2D documentation using Inventor Professional 2020.</p> 2019-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Journal of Industrial Design and Engineering Graphics http://www.sorging.ro/jideg/index.php/jid/article/view/490 DESIGN STUDY FOR A PUBLIC SPACE CLOCK 2020-02-22T15:27:17+00:00 Andreea Fundeneanu andreeafundeneanu@mail.com <p>The time measuring elements evolved during time, both from technological perspective and<br>design, as much as nowadays, exact time is available to everyone. Through technological development,<br>every device tends to have a function of measuring and displaying time. Due to this reason, an important<br>element in manufacturing of the watches is the design, no matter if we are considering a hand watch, a wall<br>watch or a public one. This thesis is aiming to present the development of a new design, modern and<br>unique, for a public watch that shall become a symbol of the Polytechnic University of Bucharest.</p> 2019-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Journal of Industrial Design and Engineering Graphics http://www.sorging.ro/jideg/index.php/jid/article/view/491 DESIGNING A WINDOWS PROGRAM FOR CONTROLLING DC-MOTORS USING MICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIO AND ARDUINO IDE 2020-02-22T15:27:16+00:00 Theodor-Andrei Popescu theodorandrei.popescu@yahoo.com Ioana Teodora Costache teodora.cos94@yahoo.com <p>This case study wishes to highlight the advantages of using a Windows based PC to control a DC<br>Motor for applications in small projects, the DC Motor being driven by an Arduino Uno board.

The study will also show the<br>advantages of using Visual Studio to design a GUI Windows application to control the mentioned DC-Motor.<br>The purpose of this application is the future usage of the DC-Motor in more complex mechatronic projects.<br>The application can adapt to any type of motor as long as it is not a Stepper-Motor or Servo-Motor.</p> 2019-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Journal of Industrial Design and Engineering Graphics http://www.sorging.ro/jideg/index.php/jid/article/view/492 URBAN ELECTRIC TRICYCLE 2020-02-22T15:27:16+00:00 Andrei Toanchină toanchinaa@gmail.com <p>An important play in an economic development and evolution of a country has the field of<br>transportation. In most countries, transportation with personal car has started to become a problem, the<br>streets are far too small and narrow for the large number of cars, and the population has started to grow<br>considerably. Looking forward, technology advances with fast steps, deploying more and more types of<br>electric, small, and different styles of vehicles. These include the electric tricycle. People travel with<br>tricycles, primarily, because of the deficiency of other transportation and comfort, offering the benefits of<br>speed and low cost. Because of the small structure of the commercial tricycle, passengers are crowded<br>inside to maximize the number of passengers on the journey. Nowadays, engineers struggle to minimize this<br>negative influence caused by tricycles, while continuing to design a vehicle that satisfy the necessary<br>everyday transport of a growing population. This paper comes with an innovation, a structure that modifies<br>its size. Therefore, it’s projected a tricycle that can increase the capacity, fulfilling two important factors:<br>functionality and comfort.</p> 2019-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Journal of Industrial Design and Engineering Graphics http://www.sorging.ro/jideg/index.php/jid/article/view/493 THE USE OF QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS IN LOGO DESIGN 2020-02-22T15:27:15+00:00 Ioana Teodora Costache teodora.cos94@yahoo.com <p>This case study wishes to highlight the use of the quality management systems in the scenario of a<br>design company that has the mission to create a logo associated with an oil company. With the help of the<br>quality management systems, the designer will be able to highlight the main points the logo wishes to meet,<br>clarify doubts in case of managing a team, and also avoid the failure that could lead to the loss of customers<br>in the future. The quality management systems that are used to ease the work of a designer in order to satisfy<br>the customer can also be used as a logical example in order to achieve success in different domains that may<br>or may not be related to logo design.</p> 2019-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Journal of Industrial Design and Engineering Graphics http://www.sorging.ro/jideg/index.php/jid/article/view/485 Traditional vs. smart engineering education 2020-02-22T15:27:19+00:00 Daniel Dobre ddobred@yahoo.com <p>Due to the complexity of contemporary global challenges, such as sustainable resource consumption and adaptation to climate change, supporting and investing in engineering education are essential to improving societies.
