Motion Transmission Systems HTML5


The motion transmission systems allow a transfer of mechanical energy from one object to another without changing the nature of the movement (rotational to rotational or translation to translation).

Ex : In gears, or friction wheels, the motor wheel transmits its rotational movement to the following wheel. Both wheels are in rotation.

The transmission of movement can occur by direct contact between two mechanical pieces or with the help of an intermediate device such as a chain or a belt.

Learning goals

  • To recognize the principal mechanisms of motion transmission.
  • To outline the advantages and inconveniences of each device.
  • To identify motion transmission mechanisms within the machines that surround us.
