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.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
