Light source for use with pneumatic hand tools. Final report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Pnu-Light was formed in 1991 to provide research, design, manufacturing, and wholesale distribution of pneumatically powered lighting systems of the highest quality. These pneumatic lighting systems would replace ordinary flashlights in the individual workplace. When integrated with hand tools, the pneumatic lighting device would provide superior lighting capability, while eliminating battery procurement and battery disposal costs. A portion of the compressed air supplied to the tool would spin a small air motor installed with a miniature generator, producing an electric current. The current would be routed to a lamp that would focus light onto the immediate work area. The company ... continued below

Description

Pnu-Light was formed in 1991 to provide research, design, manufacturing, and wholesale distribution of pneumatically powered lighting systems of the highest quality. These pneumatic lighting systems would replace ordinary flashlights in the individual workplace. When integrated with hand tools, the pneumatic lighting device would provide superior lighting capability, while eliminating battery procurement and battery disposal costs. A portion of the compressed air supplied to the tool would spin a small air motor installed with a miniature generator, producing an electric current. The current would be routed to a lamp that would focus light onto the immediate work area. The company incorporated in March 1993 and was granted US Patent 5,267,129 and International patent {number_sign}PCT21731 on the concept. Pnu-Light was referred to AlliedSignal Federal Manufacturing and Technologies (FM and T) by the Missouri Small Business Development Center at Central Missouri State University located at Warrensburg, Missouri. Pnu-Light approached the FM and T through the Technical Assistance Program with the intent of exploring a potential Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). It was determined that a CRADA was in the best interest of both parties at that time. This CRADA effort applied FM and T`s broad base of technical expertise and advanced manufacturing facilities to evaluate, design, and test hardware. This report covers the project background, description, benefits to the Department of Energy, technologies being exercised, and economic impacts.
