Ridiculously powerful machines [Machines]
posted November 13 2012 7:31.15 by Giorgos Lazaridis




The industrial evolution brought machines, BIGGER and more POWERFUL machines. Here is how this fragile creature called "human" can harness the power of many kilowatts:


The ultimate destroyer: Hydraulic powered, can bite, chew, chop and hack into pieces almost everything





Friction welding: Rub your hands and you will feel energy in the form of heat. Now multiply this by a factor of 5000 or so, and you have a friction welding machine which can melt and weld steel by rubbing them to each other





The hydraulic Rock and Concerte Splitter: Archimedes said once "Give me a place to stand on, and I will move the Earth" when he discovered the power of levers. Based on the same principle, this machine can split rocks like taring paper.





The steel molder: You've already noticed those decorative pieces on steel doors and rails with the extreme bends and shapes. Here is how they are made - raw power.





The Thermite welding machine: And finally, my favorite. It is not actually a machine, but it generates an enormous amount of chemical power, able to weld the thick and heavy railroad tracks in seconds.
