Deutsch: Mechanismus / Español: Mecanismo (desambiguación) / Français: Mêcanisme (homonymie)
Mechanism may refer to rigid bodies connected by joints in order to accomplish a desired force and/or motion transmission.

In the industrial or industry context, "mechanism" refers to a device or a system of devices designed to perform a specific function. Mechanisms are often found in machinery, equipment, and industrial systems, and they can range from simple, mechanical components to complex, electronically controlled systems. Some examples of industrial mechanisms include:

  • Gears and Pulleys: Simple mechanical systems that use interlocking gears and pulleys to transmit power and motion from one component to another.

  • Bearings and Shafts: Devices that support rotating components and reduce friction in machinery and equipment, such as gears, spindles, and electric motors.

  • Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems: Systems that use fluid pressure to transmit power and motion, such as hydraulic pumps, cylinders, and valves, and pneumatic actuators and control systems.

  • Robotics and Automation: Complex mechanisms that use electronic controls, sensors, and actuators to automate tasks, such as assembly line robots, machine vision systems, and material handling robots.

  • Actuators and Valves: Devices that control the flow of fluid or air in industrial systems, such as pneumatic and hydraulic actuators, solenoid valves, and control valves.
