I am mechanical engineer. I have made prototype of cam follower mechanism for clean energy cheaper than coal. My cam follower prototype is different than todays cam follower system. IN general cam follower 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.(main difference)
3. Cam is rotated 6 time circumference lenght of follower displacement at 70% force.
An in-depth survey of 700 current and future users of 3D printing holds few surprises, but results emphasize some major trends already in progress. Two standouts are the big growth in end-use parts and metal additive manufacturing (AM) most respondents expect.
