Friction cone variator 3

Input: the green shaft carrying a friction cone.

Output: the blue shaft carrying a friction cone.

Each roller can move along the yellow shaft independently by turning its corresponding screw.

Velocity of the output shaft depends on contact positions of the rollers with the cones.

The friction forces at contact places are created by the green springs.

Input and output shafts are perpendicular to each other.
