Mechanics for the future: Innovative Solutions

In today’s world, where technology is advancing at a dizzying pace, mechanics plays a key role in all areas of life. From advanced space vehicles to microscopic medical devices, mechanics is shaping our future. This booklet will introduce you to the fundamentals of mechanics and show you how you can use these principles to create innovative solutions.

The future of cars is not only electric vehicles, but also vehicles with combustion engines. According to experts, internal combustion vehicles are not economical, so a low or middle class person will not buy an electric car but a combustion car.

Electrification in modern times is moving at a fast pace and most manufacturers are creating their inventions. The most common arguments of the manufacturers are:

(a) Reduction of CO2 emissions and other harmful substances

b) Higher torque and immediate availability of power

c) Lower operating costs due to reduced need for servicing of internal combustion engines

Modern systems in cars prevent various types of accidents involving pedestrians, but also accidents involving other cars. Such systems include, for example, ESP, ASR, ABS, etc.

The automotive industry is experimenting with new materials and technologies to create more efficient and greener vehicles. Recent trends in the automotive industry include:

(a) The use of composites to reduce vehicle weight, improving performance and fuel efficiency

b) Integrating 3D printing technology for rapid prototyping and production of customised components

c) Development of new batteries and energy storage systems to increase the range and efficiency of electric vehicles

Automotive mechanics in Greece reflect the richness of the country’s culture and its unique environmental and geographical challenges. Where antiquity meets modernity, mechanical workshops must be flexible and creative in their approaches.

Greek mechanics often face specific problems related to local road conditions and climate. Due to the mountainous terrain and numerous islands, cars are often exposed to greater mechanical wear and tear, as well as corrosion caused by the sea air. For this reason, vehicle maintenance and repair requires specialised knowledge and skills.
