Relicator Machine

Replicator Machine by L M Farrar Step 1 – Particlization. Elements are reduced to very small particles through cooling {-200 degrees F} and crushing. They are then introduced to another machine to continue the Replicator Machine by L M Farrar separation process. The machine has an insulated, walled chamber. The chamber is fitting with access lines to introduce and circulate gaseous and liquid Nitrogen. The particlized element is poured into the bottom of the chamber where there is a pool of liquid Nitrogen. Two pumps siphon the particlized element from the pool and direct jets of the mixture through nozzles aimed at each other causing collisions at very low temperatures. The element is further broken down. When sufficiently broken down the element is kept cold and set aside for ionization. The process is repeated with each element that is to be used in manufacturing the product. Elements that cannot be combined at high temperature [at the temperature of melted Magnesium - Chlorine and Sulfur are vapors] can easily be combined at very low temperature particularly after they have been ionized. Ionized elements are then mixed in appropriate proportions and the put into a compressing unit with molds in it. The compressing unit is basically a centrifuge. What makes this work is that elements contract when cooled and expand when heated. The elements are confined at very low temperatures in easily constructed molds made primarily of ice. Compressing unit: The compressing is done with centrifugal force and each machine has an even number of molds for balance. The compressing is done in the neighborhood of minus 210 F. The molds are constructed of amended water and are frozen or carved in or to the right shape and are in the extremities of each arm of the centrifuge. {Amended; elements and or substances are introduced to the water to prevent it {once frozen} from fracturing under stress} In a contest between a rock with a crack in it and water that is put into the crack and frozen – The ice always wins. The elemental mixture is measured and introduce into each arm with a mold at the end of it. The centrifuge is turned on at lower speeds and the elements begin to collect in each mold. More elements are then put in to achieve balance. A vacuum is introduced to each arm as it is spun at high speed further condensing the elements and vacating any residual Nitrogen gas. Depending on how much compression is required – Solid weights can be placed on the interior side of the mold. The centrifuge is then operated at a speed to achieve the appropriate compression. Water is then injected in each arm and immediately freezes – closing the mold. There probably will be the need to introduce heat to the formed elements to cause them to attempt to expand after the compressing process. The expansion attempt fails and the elements are “Forced” to bond in the shape of the mold. This might – the heating - be achieved with Micro waves, Electricity or pre inserting in the elements {exothermic mixtures} that go off under the right temperature and pressure or excited by the Micro waves. If one is making magnets then the mixture would be exposed to strong electromagnetic forces early in the compressing process. If one is making semi-conductors then the elements can be introduced in a layered fashion. Same with Solar cells. Super conductors may become very easy to make. Larger objects would require stationary molds and presses to do the compressing. This process should cut the cost of manufacturing by 75% or more and open the doors to an unending number of things that previously could not be made at any cost. When it is all over the ice melts and you have a finished product.
Makes no sense at all. Can a concrete example be put up instead of just saying 'elements'? What is meant by 'ionizing' in the context of the article?

Say you wanted to make something {say A gear} out of Carbon, Yttrium, Iron & Aluminum. First particlize each element - Ionize those particles - Mix in a proportion where they fit together right - add exothermic reactants - put in centrifuge - compress - seal - heat. 10 minutes later you have the gear.
At -200F metals like Al and Fe cannot be crushed to powder. Nor will they alloy at the specified temperatures. Sounds completely haywire. Has it been proved at all?
Not proved at all. So I crush them at -50 degrees - whatever. Then I'll take them down to - 200 degrees and collide them. tired now, more later.
Metals likeAluminium are too malleable for powdering by crushing. I am afraid that the scheme suggested in the post is dead end alley. It is also energy intensive.
Thanks for your opinion
