This paintings offers with mechanical production approaches in historical past, tested during the machines linked to these procedures. a device is just incorporated whether it is a part of a laptop software, with units made of relocating components. as soon as the analytical box has been marked out, the selected descriptive approach is largely graphic.
This ancient compendium makes an attempt to provide a wide-angle view of historic improvement with no making an in-depth research of every of the examples offered. in addition, this ebook illustrates the ancient improvement of machines and mechanisms extra from a technical viewpoint instead of a strictly historical past of technology perspective because the authors are mechanical engineers who're and encouraged to ascertain the main major evidence of their personal zone of information of the idea of Machines and Mechanisms. a whole figuring out of the old improvement of know-how additionally wishes assistance from specialists in technical concerns who can enjoy and reconsider bygone achievements within the mild in their personal technical wisdom. extra collaboration among technological know-how historians and technical specialists is required, as is presently the case within the box of commercial Archaeology. hence, this e-book can also be an try to set out a technical method of the historic improvement of machines and mechanisms, yet with no too many technical info that may hinder its knowing being simply historical.
At the start of every bankruptcy there's a worldwide connection with the interval embraced, the main appropriate proof, and the main major treatises within the context of laptop historical past. Following this advent every one bankruptcy incorporates a sequence of sections at the sorts of machines which are consultant of the interval analysed including illustrations to accompany the textual content. a reasonably vast bibliography permits the reader to make a deeper historic research.

Example text

Roman common, practical sense merged all these cultural backgrounds towards technological use. Greece reached a high level in the field of technology. An emblematic example was the School of Alexandria in Egypt. From the third century BC in Alexandria there had been intense teaching and research activities on automatic devices. Since the beginning, there were outstanding personalities like Archimedes, Euclid, and Ctesibius, and later in the first century, Hero and Philon worked and taught there.

But since Antiquity, silk clothes were exported to the Roman Empire. 5 was invented before the Christian era. Proof of its existence is due to its definition in a book entitled “Dictionary of Local Expressions” that was published in China in the year 15 BC. This machine was used mainly in the silk industry since it guides the silk threads to spools that are used by weavers. The mechanism is a multiple winder that is driven by a belt between the pulleys at each end. At one side, spindle shafts are operated by friction action.

25 The tea server Fig. 26 Basic mechanisms in the tea servant automaton in Fig. 27 Forward motion mechanism Fig. 28 Mechanisms in the tea servant automaton in Fig. 25: (a) Turning mechanism; (b) Speed control mechanism tensed thread (Fig. 28a). The lever is composed of an upright rod and another horizontal one that is perpendicular to it whose aim is to make contact with the wheel that determines the movement. When the spin of the driving wheel actuates the projecting part into contact with the lever, the lever will move to push the horizontal rod to exert pressure on the turning platform and it generates the rotary movement of the automaton.
