Reg Technologies Inc. & REGI U.S., Inc. Announce Detail Radmax™ Status and Plan to Complete Fabrication

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- REGI U.S., Inc. (OTC BB: RGUS, Frankfurt Stock Exchange: RGJ) and Reg Technologies Inc. (TSX Venture Exchange: RRE.V, OTC BB: REGRF) are pleased to announce the fabrication status of the RadMax™ diesel engine demonstration prototype.

Following completion of the complex drive shaft (see news release dated November 22, 2011), the company is in a favourable position to estimate all remaining fabrication tasks leading up to the assembly and test phases.

Robert Grisar, Vice President of Engineering for REGI U.S., Inc. said, "Now that we have completed fabricating each of the most critical components we can use the dimensions and tolerances to specify the requirements of the remaining component interfaces."

The status of the remaining fabrication tasks, which represent the balance of the fabrication, is as follows:

  • Rotors: Remaining operations for each rotor include drilling the final tight tolerance turns and other finishing operations. (Refer to company news release dated May 18, 2011.)
  • Cam: Remaining operations for each cam include final surface grinding and polishing, final milling and boring to insert other machined features.  (Refer to company news release dated  August 15, 2011.)
  • Rotary Union:Work is complete. (Refer to company news release dated  September 29, 2011.)
  • Driveshaft: Work is complete. (Refer to company news release dated November 22, 2011.)
  • End plates: Remaining operations for each end plate include cutting air and water plenum holes, final milling and bore.
  • Stator frame: Remaining operations for the stator frame include final milling and bore.
  • Enclosure: Remaining operations for the enclosure include standard machining operations to mount latches and catches.
  • Oil coolers: Material has been received. Initial machining work is the next step.
  • Bearings: Material has been received.  Initial machining work is the next step.
  • Air and Water Flanges: Initial machining work is the next step.
  • Gaskets for air and water flanges: These will be sent to vendor who already produced and delivered other gaskets for us.
  • Nameplates: Fabricating and plating the nameplates. Initial machining work is the next step.

ABOUT REGI U.S., INC. AND REG TECHNOLOGIES INC.

Reg Technologies Inc. and REGI U.S., Inc. are developing for commercialization an improved axial vane type rotary engine known as the Rand Cam™/RadMax™ rotary technology used in the revolutionary design of lightweight and high efficiency engines, compressors and pumps. The RadMax™ engine has only two unique moving parts, the vanes (up to 12) and the rotor, compared to the 40 moving parts in a simple four-cylinder piston engine.   This innovative design makes it possible to produce up to 24 continuous power impulses per one rotation that is vibration-free and extremely quiet.   The RadMax™ engine also has multi-fuel capabilities allowing it to operate on fuels including gasoline, natural gas, hydrogen, propane and diesel.  For more information, please visit www.regtech.com  or www.regiinc.com.
