In a conventional Reciprocating Compressor there are a number of moving parts like the crank, connecting rod, belt drive system, and electric motor which contribute in frictional (mechanical) losses resulting in low efficiency. Also it is bulky in size and high maintenance required as it consists of motor, belt drive system, rotating parts. The capital and running cost of this type of compressor is high. All above disadvantages are overcome by an electromagnetic reciprocating air compressor. It works on the principle of electromagnetism. In this type of compressor almost all moving parts like the motor, belt drive system, crank, ...

The rise of human activity since the beginning of the 20th century, due to rapid rise in industrialization, made it necessary to create marketing and transport facilities. Further, heavy laden vehicles on roads have put pressure on it. The asphalt paving industry is constantly exploring technological improvements that will enhance the material’s performance, increase construction efficiency, conserve resources, and advance environmental stewardship.
To get required strength of roads various materials were altered, amongst them bitumen is a better option than tar but not the best one, as eventually by using the bitumen too, various health problems and pollution ...
In India thousands of railways travel everyday from one destination to another. The engine is the most important device of railway and it works on the principle of conversion of heat energy into mechanical energy.
A large amount of heat is dissipated through the fins from the engine when it starts and runs. The idea is to utilize this heat energy to generate electricity that may be used to lightening, cooling fan, charging of mobile/laptops and other appliances.
The idea of energy efficient railway for transportation seems to naturally introduce the concept of using waste ...

Fast build of relatively simple three dimensional “green” parts is achieved by stacking and laminating two dimensional cutouts made from sheets of metal powder bound together by a thermoplastic polymer such that the stack forms the desired three dimensional shape. The “green” assemblies are then sintered to drive off the thermoplastic and consolidate the metal powder to produce a monolithic metal part. Fine detail may be incorporated by adding compatible “green” elements formed from metal powder and thermoplastic binder by methods such as three dimensional printing into the “green” stack that become an integral part of the final sintered ...
I’d like to present to you a concept that’s been cooking in my head for the past few decades. In R. Buckminster Fuller’s “critical path” he presents and illustration of Manhattan island with a huge geodesic dome covering much of the borough.
Bucky pointed to a number of reasons why such mega-structures are desirable. He was also quick to point out, however, the difficulties humanity would have building such structures using then-current construction technology.
Human construction technology remains mired in the past. We continue to build using traditional, waddle-and-daub, tinker-toy construction methodologies – only applying new materials as they’ve ...
Cazza is a 3D printing technology company that aims to change the world through our technology and construction services. We sell 3D printing construction technology that will make construction processes more efficient, cost effective and environmentally friendly. We also provide design, engineering and construction services to build 3D printed projects. Cazzaʼs roots began by noticing a massive gap in the efficiency of construction processes. This gap was responsible for major problems in the world today including air pollution, unsafe housing, and high living costs.
What makes our product relevant:
-This system will effectively remove the need of having ...
The inertial continuously variable transmission is a mechanical transmission which is based on the principle of inertia. This transmission has a lot of advantages, namely: compactness, minimum friction losses and high efficiency as a result of the relatively small number of rotating components, a wide range of transformation of the torque. It does not need any conventional friction clutches. This transmission protects the engine from overload when the output shaft is braked. This drive guarantees optimum conditions of work for the engine regardless of the changing of load, and smoothly changes output speed according to the load. Mostly, design ...

Flying Balloon Mars Rover (Robot)
After nearly two years on the surface of Mars, the Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity have returned a wealth of valuable information from their wanderings. But the pace of their explorations is painfully slow, covering only a few miles since their mission began. Orbiters can certainly cover the surface of a planet much more quickly, but they lack the "hands-on" capabilities provided by surface based instruments.
Now speed up such explorations using a balloon based Mars exploration vehicle combining the global reach of arbiters and the high resolution observations enabled by surface ...

Recycling some products becomes somewhat hit and miss because of volumes and large enterprises such as McDonalds make conscious efforts to improve their recycling issues.
This idea is based around that restaurant's colorful packaging and is as applicable to other places with similar disposal issues.
It is a high tech semi automated proposition which (over time) can migrate to full automation as the technologies involved mature with the use of the system.
Basically adaptation of machine vision technology detects the color of the product in the first instance and operates gates which segregate material by color into collector bins ...
