Loading device with bars and toothed sectors

Dispozitiv de incarcare cu bare si sectoare dintate

Mechanical solution for simulating loading into a closed-loop stand for testing gears. The image presents a simplified kinematic scheme of the coupling device containing toothed sectors rotated proportionally with the centrifugal force of the symmetrical weights. The angle between the bars determines the relative angle of rotation between the shafts and thus the torque in the system.
