Potential applications of Tore
TechnologyTM and Elastic EngineeringTM
• Toroidal Drive
Toroidal Drive has a wide range of applications based on its ability
to overcome terrain obstacles, while being energy efficient,
environmentally friendly and less costly than competitive mechanisms.
Potential applications include
National parks / Alaska transportation
Transportation of extremely heavy loads
Transportation for handicapped
The soft grabbing/pulling effect is an additional feature of toroidal
shell that can be used for creating elastic robots, artificial organs
etc. Soft grabbing and sealing/locking effect can be efficiently and
safely used in such application as the robots for disabling
• Lifting and pulling devices (portable and movable lifts,
jacks, towers, winches).
Lift and transportation of people and cargo with toroidal devices
having cylindrical or conical form. The applications include a device
for discharge of load from aircraft, lifts for construction industry
and emergency escape chutes.
• Pipeline transport
The ability of toroidal machines to work inside fluid medium (water,
gel, liquid oxygen, air, ionized gas etc. allows the creation of
effective cargo transportation along the pipes, while cargo is
introduced into tore and coupled with loaded or not loaded tore.
The combination of the soft grabbing/pulling effect, damping abilities
and the ability to lock the cargo inside the shell is a great
foundation for new type of containers for hazards, fragile and
environmentally sensitive objects. In addition, elastic toroids can be
used in gravitational containers/transportation, where the cargo in a
toroid is moved autonomously on inclined surfaces (e. g., earth
surface) or rigid and soft (nets) chutes.
• Engines, Power stations. The energy process similar to vortexes,
comets and galaxies.
