Satellite friction variator 1

Input: the green shaft of a friction cone playing role of a sun. Output: the pink shaft playing role of a carrier.

The orange double cone rollers play role of satellites. They contact with the green cone and with a grey non rotary ring.

Input and output shafts are coaxial.

Turn the blue screw to move the ring for changing output velocity.

Contact pressure is created by the grey screw and the red spring.
