Incandescent Bulb Automated Production Line
Videos for Engineers

Automated production line for Duro-Test's 100-W, 120-V incandescent light bulbs - RF Cafe Video for EngineersWhat you are seeing is the automated production of contraband that could result in heavy fines and possible imprisonment if sold here in the United States after January 1, 2012. It's not a meth lab or an unauthorized replica of the iPhone 4. What is it, then? Website visitor Hugh P. sent me a link to this video showing the production line for Duro-Test's (nope, I've never heard of 'em either) 100-W, 120-V incandescent light bulbs. The ingenuity needed to conceive of and implement the machinery and controllers for as relatively simple a product as a light bulb is utterly impressive. Note how robust everything is and that most of it is metal, something maybe not expected for machinery that handles delicate glass shells and forms ultrafine filament wires. This is the kind of skill that built the modern world and is the result of lots of trial and error, success and failure. Capitalism motivated the business owners, engineers, managers, production workers, and ultimately the salesmen to believe the effort would be worth it. They busted their posteriors. OWS rats thinks all of this result of other people's work should be made available for free to them, most of whom have never produced anything but the need for toilet paper.

About RF Cafe

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
