KSGT Unit for the Kinematic Study of Gear Trains
See general description
The Unit for the Kinematic Study of Gear Trains, "KSGT", has been designed to perform the kinematic study of spur gears and planetary gears.
The Unit for the Kinematic Study of Gear Trains, "KSGT", unit includes a pivoting rail with a fixed axle to which two more axles can be fixed in any position in function of the feature to study.
The cogwheels may be assembled on the axles in combination, thus studying different gear ratios.
The spur gears can be studied having the pivoting rail fixed. One or two more axles, and therefore one or two more cogwheels, may be placed on the rail.
The planetary gears may be studied having the pivoting rail loose. The pivoting rail is used to support the planetary cogwheel on which the planetary cogwheels are located. Thus, the motion of the rail acts as input of the gear. The planet gears transmit their motion to the sun gear, which is the output element of the gear train.
The gear ratio may be determined in both cases by counting the complete turns of the cogwheels.
