As manufacturing continues to expand and evolve, solutions to be smarter, more flexible, and increase productivity are required. CNC machine shop manufacturing facilities have a limited amount of floor space. With machining centers, materials, tooling, automation, finished product, chips/waste, inventory, inspection equipment, packing/shipping, material moving vehicles, personnel and others consuming the shop floor, solutions need to be explored. As automation, lights out operation is becoming necessary to keep up with demand and deliver the greatest return, making use of all available space is the next focus.

The concept is to elevate the automation, material stock, loading/unloading, finished part placement and delivery to inspection processes. Moving these to the space over and above the machinery. By applying technology, design the ...

A drive unit comprising a two part-electric motor and a gear box coupled thereto is known. Gear box that is needed to reduce the output speed and thereby increase the torque. A disadvantage of the known drive unit is that it results in substantial costs, such as the gear box and its coupling to the motor exceeds two and more times the value of the motor itself. Furthermore, the presence of additional knots and details leads to the appearance of gaps, unevenness and noise at work, with an increase in details reducing the security of the product itself.

This is avoided by the proposed cyclo motor. In cyclo motor we have a unique combination of functions of the motor ...

Enhanced EAS system is an enhanced EAS box with all controls on screen or in build in browser circuit with enhanced cap capability and extra software setup tools.The main feature of my design is in addition to the existing <Preamble>ZCZC-ORG-EEE-PSSCCC+TTTT-JJJHHMM-LLLLLLLL- after which the YEAR-CALLSIGN- be added then existing <preemble>ZCZC-NNNN then -VERIFURL-CHECKSUMS- is added.The purpose of adding the year is to ensure a precise and valid date and originating call sign to find out who originated the alert. The URL is to link to a web page that has a link that the originator can add to for validating an alert by adding links to information then a check sum and to facilitate verifying alerts DM-OPEN would be re-enabled for ...

We combine a novel solar-concentrator with a novel clothes dryer.

1) Thin mirrors in our solar concentrator panel (1.5 X 3.5 meters) track the sun from dawn to dusk, focusing the sunlight onto a black absorber pipe that discharges heat-transfer fluid @ 400°F. "Sunfunnel", like a glass pup-tent, is novel in low cost, self-cleaning, needs no maintenance, and offers an operating life of 4 decades. Each panel supplies some 3 kW of heat; one may use dozens of such panels, depending on the power need... and roof area.

2) Our clothes dryer is powered by the solar-heated fluid through an air heat exchanger. It is unique in two ways: 1) uses little power: being the first dryer to receive ...

Reduction of drag and boosting of lift to drag ratio is of paramount importance to maximize flight efficiency. Body shape has a major role in producing drag. In order to reduce drag and increase lift to drag ratio I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years to research. The concept is described below.

Using cycloid profile sideward acceleration smoothly changes from zero to peak then to zero so there would not by sudden impulses or momentum changes of fluid and sideward velocity of fluid smoothly changes from zero to peak and the to zero. This causes what’s known as 3D relieving, for example a cylinder has smooth up (y+) and down (y-) flow during a passage ...

Harvesting energy efficiently is of paramount importance to maximize energy production efficiency. In order to produce energy freely I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years to research.

How it works: Rotor coils rotate counter clockwise reaction of that makes permanent magnet rotor rotate in clockwise direction. This motion of permanent magnet rotor causes reaction in outer rotor in clockwise direction which causes a current generated in outer coils.

The energy that produces electricity comes from reaction (Newton’s third law). Every electric motor has reaction; this reaction force is lost to move earth for a minuscule amount of distance, if motor is attached rigidly to earth by mountings. Famous examples of reaction forces in moving vehicle ...

The real-time water quality monitoring and notification system (water QMS) measures the essential qualities of water -- the water PH, temperature, turbidity (cloudiness of water), and water level in the tank -- in real time. The system consists of multiple sensors to measure the standards of water in the tank, the micro-controller to analyze the readings and the GSM module to send the information to the watching centre through SMS. It is a true time system, which is able to measure the standards of water endlessly, and can send the measured values to the watching centre when each predefined time. I developed the device to allow people to have access to safe water in their daily ...

This turbine differs that has two additional elements - a turbo-expander in the center and jet cuts on blades. The turbo expander absorbs wind energy. Thus the non-working center of the turbine becomes effective. In some versions, the fairing itself will have grooves absorbing wind energy.

Blades of the turbine have cuts which open cavities inside the blades. The stream of air comes inside the blade and presses inside too. Thus the area of pressure of a wind increases almost in 2 times without change of a configuration of the blade. The wind presses on the bottom and top surface simultaneously from within. Accordingly the capacity of the turbine increases maximum in 2 times too, minimum on 50 % depending ...

FEATURES

The design is a four wheeled unmanned ground vehicle(UGV) working without a human onboard. The robot is electrically powered and with a backup battery pack.

The vehicle moves on four rubber wheel and is suitable to operate across the rail tracks.

PLATFORM
The platform is fitted with the wheels, utility and power. The robot is fitted with ultrasonic sensors in other to perceive the environment. It is also fitted with cameras for more perception and visual sensing of the area.

CONTROL
The vehicle is both Remote-Operated and Autonomous enabling for a wider range of control. This is made possible by sensors, microcontrollers and computing systems of the operation team which plan the operation before hand from the data, ...

The Problem
Vertigo and dizziness are among the most frequent complaints seen in Emergency rooms and outpatient clinics. While most individuals experience impaired motion perceptual cues from a vertigo/dizziness attack for several seconds. As many as 2.6 million Americans with a diagnosis of an inner ear (vestibular) disorder such as Meniere's Disease, Vestibular Migraine, or Mal debarquement syndrome suffer from persistent impairment for several hours. The problem for these individuals is that current rehab and therapeutic solutions available either yield incomplete recovery or produce sedating side-effects. Consequently, they can be forced to spend as much as ¼ of every month dizzy without an effective tool to manage their symptoms and get them back on their feet as quickly as ...
