Energy chain in a drilling rig

Energy chains from igus provide alternative to steel for cable carrying in harsh environments weblink

IgusMon, 29 Sep 2014

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.

Technical article: what is induction technology and what are its uses? downloadweblink

Gill Research & DevelopmentMon, 15 Sep 2014

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.

White paper: long-stroke/high-resolution tip-tilt mechanism downloadweblink

Cedrat Technologies S.AMon, 4 Aug 2014

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.
