Shinji Yasuhara, Taizou Wakayama, Teruhiko Nakazawa: Chain continuously variable transmission. JTEKT CORPORATION, Oliff, August 22, 2017: US09739351

When a chain is wound around a pulley, a pin-pulley contact point as a contact point of a pin of the chain with the pulley slides and moves on a conical surface of the pulley. A contact point slip distance, namely the distance by which the pin-pulley contact point moves on the conical surface at thi ...

A chain (endless flexible member) is looped over an input pulley and an output pulley. Each of the input pulley and the output pulley includes a pair of a fixed sheave and a movable sheave. The fixed sheave and the movable sheave have tapered faces that are opposed to each other to define a V-shaped ...

Adjacent chain elements transmit a tension by allowing two pins to contact each other. When a chain which has been in a linear state starts to bend, a contact point moves from one point to another. Such movement of the contact point generates a force couple. This force couple causes the rear end of ...
