According to igus, its plastic energy chains are an ideal alternative to steel — the design material of choice for many decades — for working in the harsh environments of the offshore industry. igus e-chains are said to be tougher than steel for a given size and are much lighter; they are also inherently resistant to corrosion and weathering, and the best types are unaffected by exposure to most chemicals and petrochemicals as well as by exposure to UV light from the sun.

A door manufacturer seeking a gearmotor for its automated roll door system used the PowerSTAR 730 three-phase 230/400–460V 50/60Hz right-angle hypoid gearmotor from Bison Gear.
Induction is a process by which a magnetised or electrically charged object produces magnetism, an electric charge or an electro-motive force, in another object without being in contact with it. These processes are called magnetic induction when magnetism is produced, electrostatic induction when an electric charge is produced and electromagnetic induction when an electric voltage is produced. This article from Gill Research & Development discusses each of these.

Multi-degree-of-freedom (DoF) mechanisms are widely required in micro or macro manipulation fields as well as in optronics functions. Commonly available mechanisms may be divided into two main categories. The first is industrial robots (serial or parallel). These offer a large range of motion in rotation and translation. Their resolution is usually limited in the sub-millimetre range.
