WO/2015/053638 A METHOD OF FABRICATION OF LAMINATES OF ELASTIC MATERIAL SUITABLE FOR DIELECTRIC ELASTOMER SENSING||WO||16.04.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000216||STRETCHSENSE LIMITED||O'BRIEN, Benjamin Marc|
In one aspect the invention provides a method of fabricating a laminate of flexible and compliant layers of material, such as used to provide a dielectric elastomer sensor. According to the method a flexible and compliant layer of material which is affixed to a substrate to avoid strain during processing is bonded to another layer of flexible and compliant material and released from the substrate to form a laminate. The layer of flexible and compliant material affixed to the substrate may be inspected prior to bonding.

||PCT/NZ2014/000214||HARRISON, Gary, Robert||HARRISON, Gary, Robert|
The invention relates to methods and formulations for veterinary treatment. In particular, the invention relates to methods and formulations for improving the treatment of pathogenic and/or resistant worm strains in an animal by administering to the animal a parasitically effective amount of at least two different macrocyclic lactones, wherein at least one of the macrocyclic lactones is a milbemycin and at least one of the macrocyclic lactones is an avermectin. The invention also or alternatively relates to a method of reducing the reinfection by a pathogenic and/or resistant worm strain following treatment.
WO/2015/053637 CABINET LEVELLING APPARATUS||WO||16.04.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000215||DESIGNERSCOPE LIMITED||DE BRUIN, Wim Jan|
An apparatus for adjusting a height adjustable leg for supporting a cabinet, appliance or structure is described. The apparatus includes a coupling comprising a driven member or feature. The coupling forms part of a height adjustable leg. The apparatus also includes a tool comprising a driving member and a torque input for applying torque to the driving member. The tool and the coupling are complementarily adapted to releasably maintain engagement between the driving member and the driven member or feature to allow the driving member to drive the driven member or feature to rotate the coupling about a longitudinal axis of the leg for height adjustment of the leg. The driving member and the driven member are gears that releasably mesh together when the tool is engaged with the coupling.
WO/2015/053639 BRACKET ASSEMBLY AND METHOD||WO||16.04.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/050002||EVANS, Shaun||EVANS, Shaun|
A bracket assembly for connecting or linking an overhead roof structure to below roof structure elements of a building. The below roof structure elements include a wall having a top plate member or ceiling support structure. The bracket assembly comprise overhead fixing members, a bracket member, bearing member, sleeve member, and below roof structure fastener, which are interconnected and fastened together. One end of the bracket member is connectable to the overhead fixing members to the overhead roof structure and the other end of the bracket member is connectable to the below roof structure fastener which is connectable to the below roof structure. The bearing member and sleeve member are located and connected between the bracket member and the below roof structure such that the bracket member rests without loading on the bearing member which then rests on the sleeve member which when in use rests without loading on the below roof structure, which are adapted to provide structural integrity between the below roof structure and overhead structure. Various methods are also disclosed.
