HARYO Widya Damawan, Mechanical Engineering students’ University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) got a bronze medal and special award of Association Polish Inventors and Rationalizers in Seoul International Invention Fair (SIIF) 2018. Tyrender, temperature reducing tool for car tires by the fifth semester student won the reputable inovation event in international level.
“I’m happy receiving the apreciation in international event and make parents and campus proud of me,” said Haryo.. Haryo joint SIIF on 6=9 December in Seoul, South Korea. There are more than 600 new inovation from 30 countries who join this event. Haryo’s inovation was interested by almost 40 thousand people, including participants, buyer, and inevrstor around the world.
Haryo explained, the Tyrender is a temperature reducing tool for car tires. “this tool is to reduce the high temperature caused by friction tires and road surface. The final function is to extend tire life,” he said when contacted via WhatsApp, Tuesday (11/12). Haryo is still in Seoul, South Korea.
Furthermore, the student who was born in Ujung Pandang, City of Makassar explained that there are some condition which make tires get friction, namely road surface condition, vehicle speed and load received. Moreover, the excessive temperature caused by friction was also one of the factors the tire is thinning.
The tool he designed will minimize it. Made from water tank circuit, controller, pump and nozzle, Tyrender automatically sprays water when the tire temperature exceeds the threshold. Therefore, the tire life will be longer. He claimed that this inovation has not been made by other inovators in mechanical controller category he followed to.
After the temparture is normal, continued Haryo, the tool will stop spray automatically. He gave an example, if the tire gets 30 degrees in the beginning, but then when running will increase into 35 degrees, and when driving fast reaches 40 degrees. This tool will automatically return the tire temperature to 35 degrees.
In 2017, at the same event, the Indonesian contingent managed to bring 3 gold medals, 5 silver medals and 6 bronze medals. In 2018, Indonesia sent 41 products and received 1 grand prize, 10 gold, 6 silver and 20 bronze. Haryo also posted a list of glorious achievements for UMM as well as Indonesia in the international arena.
UMM Chancellor, Dr. Fauzan, M.Pd., said that the achievement of Haryo as a proof of UMM's commitment to educate the nation's best generation through technology and science. "This is the form of UMM tagline implementation, From Muhammadiyah for the Nation. That is a proof of UMM's contribution to the advancement of the ummah in the future," he concluded. (ard)
