Abstract

The manufacturing process of beads is a very challenging process as no specialized machines exist to produce them. The production of beads requires high individual skills as well as modified machines to generate a fire source for the purpose of heating the glass which is the raw material of the bead. The current machine used by Victoria's Enterprise is a modified machine that is used for the purpose of gas welding. However, the machine is often damaged and the spread of heat is uneven. The machine is also too bulky and difficult to divert from one place to another. This innovation is a portable HHO Generator that is capable of generating a concentrated heat needed to solve the problem. HHO Generator that separates water molecules into the gas and has a mixture of oxygen and hydrogen gas to generate flame. The machine comes with a special nozzle designed to produce a consistent and uniform heat with adequate heat flow rate corresponding to the beads manufacturing process. The machine is also portable and can be loaded into small vehicles. This machine will ease the beads manufacturing process and can be widely distributed to villagers in Sarawak to enable them to generate income from handicrafts.
