To build the Mac Pro, Apple pioneered new processes, innovated manufacturing techniques, and essentially rethought how to make a computer from the ground up. The company considered every element that defines a pro computer — graphics, storage, expansion, processing power, and memory. This is the story of how the Mac Pro all comes together.
Affecting the nervous system, Parkinson's disease can cause limbs to tremor. Living with this disease can make everyday activities such as eating and drinking incredibly difficult. A new mechatronic spoon Liftware made just for people with Parkinson’s and other tremor-causing conditions can help stabilize tremors.
6-axis industrial robots are commonly used in the manufacturing industry due to their flexibility, powerful programming software, payload capacities ranging from 5kg up to 1000kg and accuracy to 0.1mm or better. Here is a basic breakdown of how a standard 6-axis robot works. The way it rotates, how it is programmed, and the different types of tooling and grippers.
These timelapse pictures show the process of an petrol engine rebuild. The snapshots helped him to put the engine together. Fortunately, the author has decided on making the video you can see below. Watch it till the end - 'trust me I'm an engineer...'
A car is a complex system of interconnected parts, and the various subsystems in the car need to work together. Designing, assembling and testing of a car require a close collaboration between engineers, technicians, and other experts and professionals. In the pictures below you can see a large amount of parts needed to build a car.
How a Car Engine Works infographic designed by Jacob O'Neal shows principle of operation of one of the most amazing machines we use on a daily basis. See the common layout of an engine: a four-stroke engine (also known as four-cycle), engine configurations, basic systems and elements that a gas engine needs to function (fuel injectors, air, oil, electrical and cooling systems),
The Raspberry Pi was invented in the United Kingdom and now it is manufactured there as well. Production of the Linux-based mini-computer started in China back at the start of 2012, but has been gradually moving to the Welsh Sony factory in Pencoed South Wales since September 2012. In April, Sony announced that the 500,000th Pi has just rolled off their lines. Let us see the manufacturing process of the Raspberry Pi.
