Inventors are a big part of human culture all over the world, that’s why Anco precision machining is a great choice for their manufacturing needs. Their scientific insights and discoveries have aided in making our lives easier, simpler and safer. One of the most famous and influential American inventors was none other than Alexander Graham Bell. Bell was not only an inventor but also a scientist, engineer and innovator. He is the man who is credited with developing the telephone. Bell spent so much time testing and researching sound because his mother and wife were deaf. He did further research on speech and hearing and eventually developed hearing devices.
He was the first of many inventors at the time who had been racing to discover the technology and in 1876 was awarded the first U.S. patent for a telephone system. Ironically enough Bell thought the publicity from his telephone invention hindered his further research and became a nuisance. He refused to have a telephone on his office until the day he officially retired. Later in life Bell was still having ground breaking advancements in various fields such as hydrofoils and aeronautics. At the age of 12 he is credited with his first invention, a wheat de-husker. Bell built his home made device to aid his friend’s family in their farming endeavors. The device was simple yet amazing efficient.
He combined rotating paddles with nail brushes and made his first invention. Many inventors would spend their entire lives trying to live up to the reputation of Alexander Graham Bell. Bell was troubled by his mothers increasing deafness and became fascinated with the study of acoustics. He developed a technique that he could use to communicate with his mother easier.
He would talk to her in certain ones and inflections at her forehead which would send the sound waves into her ears so she could hear what he said to her with surprising clarity. As is common in the competitive inventor’s circles’ other people were trying to beat Bell to the patent office. Numerous other inventors were working simultaneously on the telephone as was Bell.
In just the first 18 years of business the Bell Telephone Company faced nearly 600 lawsuits over patent right to the telephone. However not one could established priority over Bell’s original patent. To this day Bell remains one of the best inventors the world has ever seen. His ideas and discoveries are still used and manufactured. Who knows where we would be without some of our best minds, the inventors. Today’s inventors can have the ability to work with Anco precision machining to make their revolutionary ideas come to life.
