Friction cone variator 1

Input: the green shaft carrying a friction roller. Output: the blue shaft carrying a friction cone.

The 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 cone.

The friction force at contact places is created by the red springs.

Input and output shafts are intersecting.
