You can see cam follower mechanism for clean energy cheaper than coal. My cam follower mechanism is different than today's cam follower. In general cam follower system,
cam shaft is rotated and follower move up and down according to cam profile. In my cam follower system, 1. Follower is offset. 2. Force is applied from follower to cam and by using this force cam is rotated. 3. We can decide how much follower come down for helping cam to rotate particular circumference length. 4. Follower down 6 cm with 100 kg and rotate cam of 27 cm at 70 kg. 5. Input energy we use to move follower is =0.06*100 =6 N-Meter 6 Out put energy we get on cam = 0.27*70 = 18.9 N-Meter

Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
