KVD Technologies Engineering Exhibits Automotive Ignition

Automotive Ignition

 

Electricity is converted to high voltage by a coil, sent to a distributor and in turn delivering the spark to ignite the air/fuel mixture in an automobile.  This exhibit illustrates the actual spark timing, via the transparent distributor cap and the spark plugs.

KVD Technologies Engineering Exhibits Cam and Follower

Cam and Follower

 

A special type of roller designed to follow a cam.  The cam shaft in an automobile is used to open and close inlet and exhaust valves.

KVD Technologies Engineering Exhibits Chain and Gear

Chain and Gear

 

Illustrates how a small gear turns the large gear by being linked by a chain.  The smaller gear turns at a faster rate than the large gear and completes more revolutions. Demonstrates gear ratios.

KVD Technologies Engineering Exhibits Crazy Cranes

Crazy Cranes

 

The objective is to simultaneously control the cranes to lift blocks onto the ship.

KVD Technologies Engineering Exhibits Gate Opener

Gate Opener

 

Demonstrates the mechanics of a pallisade gate opener.

KVD Technologies Engineering Exhibits Ohm's Law Demonstrator

Ohm's Law Demonstrator

 

Illustrates Ohm’s Law practically by interactively changing the values of Volts, Amperes or Ohms.

Seven Segment Demonstrator

 

Demonstrates the inputs necessary to form a number on a 7 segment LED display.

Square Wheel

 

A square wheel can roll smoothly if the ground consists of evenly shaped inverted catenaries of the right curvature and size.

Stirling Engine

 

A Stirling engine is a heat engine operating by cyclic compression and expansion of air or other gas, the working fluid, at different temperature levels such that there is a net conversion of heat energy to mechanical work.

Universal Joint Demonstrator

 

Universal joints are used in an automobile to transfer power between the engine and the wheels and account for suspension movement.  Power is thus transferred in directions other than a straight line.
