Ralph Dillon invented this dynamometer in 1964. It was manufactured by WC Dillon and Co, of Van Nuys, California, founded by Ralph’s father in 1937. The dynamometer measures mechanical force, torque, or power. For example, the power produced by an engine, motor, or other rotating prime mover can be calculated by simultaneously measuring torque and rotational speed (RPM). The stand for this device was designed and created by three Chemical Engineering majors (Ashton Tatka, Ruqayyah Tahir, and Wilson Melendez) for Professor Murat Guvendiren’s Introduction to 3D Printing course.
