Around 1680
Denis Papin, a French Physicist, invents the pressure cooker with its safety valve to guard against excessive rise in pressure. He is thus the first to discover steam's potential for industrial use.


Around 1698
Thomas Savery, an English engineer, becomes the first to build a steam pump for removing water from mines. Savery also defines a unit of measurement for the performance of a machine: horsepower = the power needed to lift 75 kg in weight 1 meter off the ground in one second.

 



Around 1700
English engineer Thomas Newcomen builds the first steam engine, used to drive a water pump.


Around 1765
James Watt, a Scottish inventor, develops the first useable steam engine. Together with manufacturer Matthias Boultin he founds an engine factory in 1774. The most celebrated invention, the sun and planet gear system, transforms the up and down movement of the piston rod into a rotating movement. This meant that a variety of machines could be attached to the system: and thus began the mechanical era.


1972
Lutz Hielscher began to manufacture model steam engines and technical toys in Wuppertal.


1994
The production of model technical toys is once again running at full speed ahead. Examples include the Wuppertal suspension railway, steam railways (H0, G,I), steam engines, Stirling engines, vacuum engines, steam cars and turbines.
Available both in ready to run model or construction kit form.
