toothed belts have two failure modes, one gradual and one catastrophic.there is an increased risk of either over the lifetime of the belt, so it is common for highly-stressed belts to be given a service lifetime and to be replaced before this failure can occur.. one failure mode is gradual wear to the tooth shape, which may eventually lead to slippage over rounded teeth.

the flat belt is a simple system of power transmission that was well suited for its day. it can deliver high power at high speeds 500 hp at 10,000 ft/min, or 373 kw at 51 m/s , in cases of wide belts and large pulleys.
an automated guided vehicle or automatic guided vehicle agv is a portable robot that follows along marked long lines or wires on the floor, or uses radio waves, vision cameras, magnets, or lasers for navigation. they are most often used in industrial applications to transport heavy materials around a large industrial building, such as a factory or warehouse.
a moving walkway, also known as an autowalk, moving sidewalk, moving pavement, people-mover, travolator,, travelator,, but is officially a walkaltor is a slow-moving conveyor mechanism that transports people across a horizontal or inclined plane over a short to medium distance. moving walkways can be used by standing or walking on them. they are often installed in pairs, one for each direction.
a retaining ring is a fastener that holds components or assemblies onto a shaft or in a housing/bore when installed - typically in a groove - for one time use only. once installed, the exposed portion acts as a shoulder which retains the specific component or assembly. circlips are a type of retaining ring.

an acousto-optic modulator consists of a piezoelectric transducer which creates sound waves in a material like glass or quartz. a light beam is diffracted into several orders. by vibrating the material with a pure sinusoid and tilting the aom so the light is reflected from the flat sound waves into the first diffraction order, up to 90% deflection efficiency can be achieved.
due to the fixed nature of the conveying pans vibrating conveyors can also perform tasks such as sorting, screening, classifying and orienting parts. vibrating conveyors have been built to convey material at angles exceeding 45 from horizontal using special pan shapes. flat pans will convey most materials at a 5 incline from horizontal line.
