I have made cam follower mechanism for clean energy cheaper than coal. Cam and follower is generally used to open and close valve of internal combustion engine. In general cam follower mechanism, cam shaft is rotated and follower move up and down according to cam profile. My cam follower system is different. In my cam follower system,
1. Follower is offset. Follower is not inline with the cam center.
2. Force is applied from follower to cam and by using this force cam is rotated.
3. Follower come down little bit and rotate cam 6 times circumference length of follower displacement at 70% force.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
