Industrial Revolutin

Inventor's of the time of The Industrial Revolution

He designed and built a model for a machine that would separate the seeds from the fibers of the short-staple cotton plant, work that until that time had been done by hand. He completed the machine—the first cotton gin—in 1793. Eli Whitney
He invented, or aided in inventing, a carding machine that prepared fiber for spinning into thread. The spinning jenny, which Hargreaves is credited with inventing in 1764, made possible the automatic production of cotton thread. James Hargreaves
created the spinning frame (later renamed the water frame). The spinning thread created a much thicker and stronger thread then the spinning jenny. The spinning jenny was an invention which helped speed up yarn and thread production. Richard Arkwright
Richard Trevithick created the high pressure steam engine and the first steam engine operated locomotive. His invention helped improve locomotives so that they could get trains to their destinations faster. Richard Trevithick
the pioneer automobile manufacturer, made an immense contribution to the expansion of the factory system in the U.S. when he introduced assembly line techniques to automobile production in the Ford Motor plant. Henry Ford
Watt determined the properties of steam, especially the relation of its density to its temperature and pressure, and designed a separate condensing chamber for the steam engine that prevented enormous losses of steam. James Watt
British inventor, born in Charlton, Hertfordshire, England, and largely self-educated. He was a prolific inventor, but is best known for his process for the manufacture of steel (see Iron and Steel Manufacture). Henry Bessemer
