Spur Gear Lifting Apparatus TM 123

Spur Gear Lifting Apparatus

Type: TM 123
Name: Spur Gear Lifting Apparatus
Technical Description

  The mechanism demonstrates the relationship between the ratio of the number of teeth on spur gears and the transmission ratio of gears. With straightforward experiments, the torque conversion in gear wheel pairs and the efficiency of a gear unit are investigated.
  The model is intended for wall mounting. The well-structured instructional material sets out the fundamentals and provides a step-by-step guide through the experiments.


Learning Objectives / Experiments
