Resumen:
Una pyme chipriota ha desarrollado un nuevo módulo mecánico para convertir movimiento giratorio-lineal en movimiento continuo circular unidireccional y ofrecer un mayor rendimiento total del motor. Una posible aplicación de este dispositivo novedoso es la combinación de un motor de combustión interna acoplado a un motor de combustión externa, como un motor Stirling. En esta combinación, el calor del sistema de escape del motor de combustión interna se emplea como fuente de calor para el motor Stirling, y ambos motores utilizan el dispositivo como mecanismo para transformar el movimiento de los pistones en movimiento rotacional. La empresa busca diseñadores y fabricantes de motores con el fin de establecer acuerdos comerciales con asistencia técnica y continuar con el desarrollo.

Mechanism for converting a reciprocating linear movement to a unidirectional circular continuous movement
Summary:
An innovative, mechanical module that converts a reciprocating linear movement to a unidirectional circular continuous movement has been developed by a Cypriot SME which can provide a total engine efficiency greater than most types of engine.

A commercial agreement with technical assistance as further development is required by the SME, is sought, with engine designers and manufacturers.
Description:
The mechanism converts a reciprocating linear movement to a unidirectional circular continuous movement. The mechanism components are simple in their design and manufacture which can be beneficial in terms of costs of manufacture and utilisation.
The mechanism can be scaled up or down according to the specific needs of each application and can also be combined with existing engines driving a single shaft or combined with other mechanisms to take advantage of different motion/ energy sources.
A variety of driving and energy forces is compatible and can be used to drive the shafts. These can include:
· sea, lake or pond wave energy,
· air, steam or hydraulic pistons;
· magnetic or electromagnetic solenoids;
· human or animal power;
· memory metal springs;
· wind; gravitational vibrations such as the forces generated by car springs,
· a combination of the above
and many others.

A possible application of this innovative device is the combination of an internal combustion engine coupled to an external combustion engine such as a "Stirling engine". In this combination the exhaust heat of the internal combustion engine is used as a heat source for the Stirling engine, both engines using the device as a mechanism for the transformation of the pistons´ reciprocating movement into usable rotational movement.
Using this design, the total efficiency is estimated to be greater than any other type of engine, which additionally translates to lower CO2 emissions per Joule or Watt of energy produced.

The SME that has developed the mechanism is based in Cyprus and has been involved in engineering applications and research programmes for a number of years.
Advantages and Innovations:
· Can be installed to numerous and varied applications, depending on the specific needs of each case.
· More efficient, up to 95% theoretically, compared to the use of the "crank-shaft" mechanisms.
· The amplitude of the force can be variable which can be ideal, for many applications.
· To further increase the power output of the device, multiple mechanisms may be mounted so that they work together to drive a common shaft.
· A unique feature of the mechanism is the produced, continuous, rotation of the common output shaft, even when the driving forces are in opposite directions.
· It is not necessary for the forces to be in phase, multiple different forces of different origins can be used simultaneously.

All of the above unique advantages are hugely important because they open up the possibility of producing simple, compact machines which can produce great power in a very efficient and effective way on multiple applications.
