Posted by Paul Heney+ on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 · 5 Comments Cylinders allow hydraulic systems to apply linear motion and force without mechanical gears or levers by transferring the pressure from fluid through a piston to the point of operation.

What are hydraulic cylinders?

Hydraulic cylinders are at work in both industrial applications (hydraulic presses, cranes, forges, packing machines), and mobile applications (agricultural machines, construction equipment, marine equipment). And, when compared with pneumatic, mechanical or electric systems, hydraulics can be simpler, more durable, and offer greater power. For example, a hydraulic pump has about ten times the power density of an electric motor of similar size. Hydraulic cylinders are also available in an impressive array of scales to meet a wide range of application needs. Selecting the right cylinder for an application is critical to attaining maximum performance and reliability. Cylinder types Cylinder mounting methods Questions to consider: Twentyseven Gears Home.

Reuleaux Collection of Kinematic Mechanisms, Cornell University The 220 models in Cornell University’s Reuleaux Collection were built in the late 19th century to demonstrate the elements of machine motion, as theorized by the German engineer Franz Reuleaux.

The University acquired the models in 1882 for use in teaching and research. This is KMODDL’s core collection and at present is the most extensively documented and enhanced with multimedia resources. Clark Collection of Mechanical Movements, Museum of Science, Boston The Clark Collection at Boston’s Museum of Science is a set of working models of mechanical movements and combinations of drive mechanisms built by American engineer William M.

This is the lock stitch type machine.

To show complete operation, material for sewing must operate through the machine. As the needle goes through the material, the foot bar presses foot down. When the needle rises and draws thread up through material the foot rises and the toothed feeder under foot advances material the required distance for next stitch. On first operation, when needle goes downward through material, the loop of thread is caught by revolving thread hook, which pulls the thread taut in the material. Repeating of this cycle, produces a series of stitches continuously along a desired line. Rolling Ball Sculptures - Kinetic Art and The Movie 'Fracture'

I researched the movie and rolling ball machines and learned kinetic art is a term for sculptures that have movement.

Rolling Ball Sculptures - Kinetic Art and The Movie 'Fracture'

The machines are likened to ‘nonsense machines’ originally depicted by the famous cartoonist and engineer Rube Goldberg, and now known as Rube Goldberg machines – ‘complex devices that perform simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways’. The Rube Goldberg type machines, the elaborate full scale version and the desktop model, which are seen in wealthy Ted Crawford’s (Anthony Hopkins) home and office, play a clever key part in the movie ‘Fracture', reminding you perpetually of the man’s precise, meticulous character and synchronizing with the twisting, turning plot itself. The devices are located in the two central places of his life - his lounge and his private office. Why the writer of 'Fracture' hit upon the idea of having a rolling ball machine in the movie Writer Glen Gers was also inspired by marbles - rolling ones in a marble maze, exiting in unexpected places.

Gear template generator

I recommend printing the gears with an ink jet printer. Even cheap ink jet printers print very scale accurate but Not all laser printers are accurate. This is the new version (as of September 2015). You can still access the old Flash based version Getting the printout to scale correctly Different browsers print at different scales depending on browser type and printer configuration.

Some notes about gear design and this gear template generator This template generator is intended for generating paper templates for cutting low precision gears from plywood, phenolic, or other suitable materials with a band saw.
