Friction cone variator 2

Input: the lower shaft carrying a friction cone.

Output: the upper shaft carrying a friction cone.

The pink roller can move along its shaft by turning the yellow screw.

Velocity of the output shaft depends on contact position of the roller with the cones.

The friction forces at contact places are created by the red springs. Input and output shafts are parallel.
