Mars Turbine

The Mars Turbine captures the higher speed winds found at altitudes of up to 1,000 feet and converts them into electricity using a generator.Wind causes the blimp to rotate: That movement gets converted into electricity by the generator and is then transferred down the tether....

Diesel Filter

diesel particulate filter  or DPF is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine.The most common filter is made of cordierite . This filters provide excellent filtration efficiency, are relatively inexpensive, and have thermal properties that make packaging them for installation in the vehicle simple....

Nut Types

nut is a type of fastener with a threaded hole. Nuts are almost always used in conjunction with a mating bolt to fasten two or more parts together. The two partners are kept together by a combination of their threads' friction, a slight stretching of the bolt, and compression of the parts to be held together.....

Canned Cycle

canned cycle is a way of conveniently performing repetitive CNC machine operations. Canned cycles automate certain machining functions such as drillingboringtapping, pocketing, etc.Canned cycles are so called because they allow a concise way to program a machine to produce a feature of a part.....

How Does Laser Cutting Work ?

The laser beam is a column of very high intensity light, of a single wavelength, or color. In the case of a typical CO2 laser, that wavelength is in the Infra-Red part of the light spectrum, so it is invisible to the human eye.The beam is only about 3/4 of an inch in diameter as it travels from the laser resonator, which creates the beam, through the machine’s beam path.......

Common Grinding Operations

Surface grinding is used to produce a smooth finish on flat surfaces. It is a widely used abrasive machining process in which a spinning wheel covered in rough particles  cuts chips of metallic or nonmetallic substance from a workpiece, making a face of it flat or smooth.....

Master Brake Cylinder

Master cylinder is a control device that converts non-hydraulic pressure (commonly from a driver's foot) into hydraulic pressure. This device controls slave cylinders located at the other end of the hydraulic system....

Creative Idea For Lifting Jack

jack is a mechanical device used as a lifting device to lift heavy loads or to apply great forces. A mechanical jack employs a screw thread for lifting heavy equipment. A hydraulic jack uses hydraulic power and this is one of the most creative idea for design this device....

How Does an Air Conditioner works

An air conditioner works as a heat exchanger . It takes in warm air in your room and passes it over a set of cooling coil and then blows it back to the room as cold air. The cooling cycle of your air conditioner involves two basic processes: condensation and evaporation (you must have learned about them in school).

*** There are 4 important components in your AC that control the cooling cycle:

1- Compressor

2- Condenser coils

3- Evaporator Coils

4- Freon- Cooling agent

**Compression and condensation cycle

The coolant (mixed with lubricating oil*) enters the compressor as a cold low pressure gas where it is compressed. This compression increases the temperature and pressure of the coolant which converts it into a hot high pressure gas. 

This hot high pressure gas passes through a series of thin coil called condenser coil where it gets converted into a high pressure liquid. Whenever gas is converted into liquid heat is released. So the heat released during condensation of coolant is dissipated outside with the help of a condenser fan (located next to condenser coils).

**Expansion and evaporation cycle

This hot high pressure liquid then passes through an other set of thin coils called evaporator coils, where it gets evaporated into a low pressure gas. As the liquid changes to gas and evaporates, it extracts heat from the surrounding warm air of your room. 

So the air coming in contact with these coils get cooled and is blown back to the room with the help of an evaporator fan.

By the time the working fluid leaves the evaporator, it is a cool, low pressure gas. It then returns to the compressor to begin its trip all over again.

Difference Between Hot Working & Cold Working

Forming is the metalworking process of fashioning metal parts and objects through mechanical deformation; the workpiece is reshaped without adding or removing material, and its mass remains unchanged. Forming operates on the materials science principle of plastic deformation, where the physical shape of a material is permanently deformed.

Hot working:-

Hot working refers to processes where metals are plastically deformed above their recrystallization temperature. Being above the recrystallization temperature allows the material to recrystallize during deformation

Cold working:-

Cold working is the plastic deformation of metals below the recrystallization temperature. In most cases, such cold forming is done at room temperature. & Hot working refers to processes where metals are plastically deformed above their recrystallization temperature. Being above the recrystallization temperature allows the material to recrystallize during deformation....

Pistol Section Components

pistol is a type of handgun. Some handgun experts and dictionaries make a technical distinction that views pistols as a subset of handguns; others use the terms interchangeably. Sometimes in usage, the term "pistol" refers to a handgun having one chamber integral with the barrel.....

Hydraulic Shovel Components

Hydraulic shovels have a similar capacity range, but use hydraulics and a forward or backhoe loading motion to dig into the ore being excavated.Electric rope shovels, with bucket capacities ranging from 20 m3 to over 100 m3, raise and lower the bucket using large cables attached to powerful electric motors.....

Mechanism Concept

mechanism :- 

is a device designed to transform input forces and movement into a desired set of output forces and the movement. 

Mechanisms generally consist of moving components such as gears and gear trains, belt and chain drives, cam and follower mechanisms, and linkages as well as friction devices such as brakes and clutches, and structural components such as the frame, fasteners, bearings, springs, lubricants and seals, as well as a variety of specialized machine elements such as splines, pins and keys.

Geneva Mechanism :-

The Geneva drive or Maltese cross is a gear mechanism that translates a continuous rotation into an intermittent rotary motion. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that reaches into a slot of the driven wheel advancing it by one step. The drive wheel also has a raised circular blocking disc that locks the driven wheel in position between steps.

Ratchet & Pawl Mechanism :-

ratchet is a mechanical device that allows continuous linear or rotary motion in only one direction while preventing motion in the opposite direction. Ratchets are widely used in machinery and tools. Though something of a misnomer, "ratchet" is also often used to refer to ratcheting socket wrenches, a common tool with a ratcheting handle.

A mechanism is usually a piece of a larger process or mechanical system. Sometimes an entire machine may be referred to as a mechanism. Examples are the steering mechanism in a car, or the winding mechanism of a wristwatch. Multiple mechanisms are machines.

Comparison Between Grease & Oil

Oil and grease is a measure of a variety of substances including fuels, motor oil, lubricating oil, hydraulic oil, cooking oil, and animal-derived fats  The concentration of these substances is typically measured within a body of water. Lakes, river, stormwater runoff, and wastewater are all monitored for oil and grease....

Space Shuttle Components

Shuttle components included the Orbiter Vehicle (OV), a pair of recoverable solid rocket boosters (SRBs), and the expendableexternal tank (ET) containing liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen. The Shuttle was launched vertically, like a conventional rocket.... 

Conventional Suspension

Conventional Suspension is the system of tires, tire air, springsshock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. it serve a dual purpose contributing to the vehicle's handling and braking for good active safety and driving pleasure.....
