A new energy-saving mechanical system with automatically controlled air valves has been proposed by investigator and the preliminary model setup has been tested. The testing results indicated the proper function of this energy-saving mechanical system. This mechanical system model has been simulated and analyzed by the computational aided engineering solution. The major advantages of this mechanical system include: simple and compact in design, higher efficiency in mechanical functioning, quiet in manufacturing operation, less energy losses due to less frictional forces in this free piston-cylinder setup, self-adjustable in operational parameter to improve the system performance, and etc.
