Friction disk variator 6

Input: the orange disc receiving rotation from the green motor. Output: the blue shaft.

Turn the cyan screw to move the disc for desired output velocity n. n = (n1 + n2)/2

n1, n2 are velocities of the pink rollers. n can be 0 or minus (reversing).

Using the bevel gear differential enables accurate adjustment of output velocity.
