Cam and Follower Apparatus
A vertical pillar contains the main spindle for each cam to be rotated, whilst a dial gauge has its anvil resting on the top edge of the cam. Each cam is mounted on a central shaft and is free to rotate about this shaft. The cams are rotated by hand.
Gear Train Apparatus
This compact bench top unit allows investigations into transmission ratio and velocity ratio for simple, compound and planetary gear trains. A solid base mounts an epicyclic arm, which is free to rotate about a fixed pivot point on bearings. Onto this arm are mounted durable plastic gears.
Static & Dynamic Balancing
This equipment is designed for carrying out the experiment for balancing a rotation mass system. The apparatus consists of a steel shaft fixed in a rectangular frame. A set of four blocks with a clamping arrangement is provided. For static balancing, each block is individually clamped on shaft and its relative weight is found out using cord and container system in terms of number of steel balls. For dynamic balancing, a moment polygon is drawn using relative weights and angular and axial position of blocks is determined. The block are clamped on shaft is rotated by a motor to check dynamic balance of the system. The system is provided with angular and longitudinal scales and is suspended with chains for dynamic balancing.
Centrifugal Force Apparatus
The unit enables the forces exerted on rotating masses to be studied. The core of the unit is a rotating arm with a vertical axis of rotation. Mass bodies made of metal are anchored to the arm in retaining holes. The centrifugal force exerted is transmitted from the arm to a bending bar. The deformation of the bar, which is proportional to the force, is recorded by an electronic measuring system and is displayed digitally. The rotational speed of the regulated drive motor, also displayed digitally, can be continuously adjusted using a 10-turn potentiometer. In operation a transparent protective lid covers all rotating parts but nevertheless ensures a clear view of the experiment. The table unit can be set up where required and does need to be clamped in place, the unit is also portable.

Solar Gear Apparatus
Solar Gear Apparatus Many in cooler climates with less solar energy available have concerns about switching to solar geysers. These systems can still save energy and money for this group since they can be used in conjunction with gas or electric water heaters. An indirect circulation system is best for these climates. Switching to the solar geysers during the summer and sunnier days of spring and fall can save consumers a lot of energy since solar power costs nothing. It also gives peace of mind that, since solar power doesn’t give off greenhouse emissions that the environment is being protected. Another perk to using solar geysers is that during power outages it kicks in to full gear for consumer convenience.
