World in Gear Changing Technology

As we all know that Gears have existed since the development of rotating machinery. References to gears can be traced back to the 4th Century BC, where Aristotle wrote about wheels using friction between smooth surfaces to transmit motion.



The earliest known written reference to gears was circa 50 AD by Heron of Alexandria. He was a prolific inventor and mechanic who designed systems that utilized gears to lift heavy building objects. The early Greeks made use of metal gears with wedge-shaped teeth. Romans made use of gears in their mills.
Today, we enjoy the benefits of gears in everything from electric rotating toothbrushes to gigantic ships and jets. Gears are now made from a variety of substances, depending on the application and strength needed.



As we have sen in some applications, gears which  were also used as speed reducers. It then wasn’t until the Industrial Revolution some 1800 years later that increased the need for stronger gears and changed the way the world used power.


Robotics in the World of Automotives

As of for many years the automotive industry has been well known for its intensive use of industrial robotics. 


Since the implantation of the first industrial robots in the 1960s, a lot of things have changed. These days, the production lines need to be more efficient, flexible and precise. Many enhancements have been made on production lines over the last few years to help workers in their daily tasks.  the latest robotic applications in automotive manufacturing and here are the top 5 applications that grabbed our attention.


1) Robotic Vision
During the production of the 2013 Ford Escape, the company decided to introduce a robotic arm with "eyes". The laser and camera placed in an array on the robot wrist, are able to see exactly where to install the parts on the car body. By giving instant feedback to the robot; the windshields, door panels and fenders can be applied more precisely. The big innovation of this technology is that industrial robots are now able to put a proper…

The perfect computerised battery testing

Keeping the track of batteries can be difficult, especially when encountering continuously changing battery types and observing periodic maintenance needs. 


So To assist with all some of several manufacturers of battery analyzers are offering software to enable PC interface. While the PC is v helpful for battery service, the available software is often not refined enough to satisfy most market requirements.Software has commonly written into accommodate a broad range of applications, even though a customer may never use more than one function. 
BatteryShop has been designed to service cell phone batteries at storefronts, check batteries in large repair centers, assist in the scheduled maintenance of fleet batteries, and tend to engineers in research labs. Here are a few examples how the PC software can be used
