Abstract

This paper describes linear load-sensitive continuously variable transmission with the spherical driving unit. This CVT mechanism consists of spherical drive, drive axis, motor housing, fixed bracket and linear sliding plate. It changes the reduction ratio continuously by inclination angle of active rotational axis. Additionally, this linear mechanism has a load-sensitive function by changing inclination of active rotational axis in response to the load. We have developed a linear load-sensitive continuously variable transmission and confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed mechanism.
