Transmission devices are much like a mechanical box containing gears, cams, pulleys, etc to transmit the input energy into an output forces in order to drive the end part connections. Transmissions are widely used in all kinds of mechanical units as this is a power transmission system that can offer controlled outcome of the given power, which may be motors.
Machine tools, injection molding machines, automotive vehicles, are all mechanical units that would be implanted with at least one transmission, and many of them are automatic transmissions today. CVT transmission was an innovative unit of transmissions, which stands for continuously variable transmission, and is the automated transmission that can change seamlessly compared to manual operation through a continuous range of the gear ratios inside the transmission. This feature contrasts with other transmission versions that provide a limited number of gear ratios in fixed stages.
In the field of automotive application of the CVT transmission, this type of gearbox is designed with great flexibility. The flexibility of a CVT transmission with suitable and appropriate control values may permit the combusted engines to operate at a constant and stable RPM values while the vehicle moves at varying speed states. This grants very bounteous convenience for the drivers as they do not have to know much about the mechanical structures of their transmission, or CVT transmissions composition, but they still can have the car well managed. CVT transmissions are utilized in all kind of fields such as earthmoving equipment, automobiles, motor scooters, tractors, snowmobiles, etc. Under normal circumstances, the most commonly used type of CVT transmissions adopt two sets of pulleys that are connected by chains or belts as the most common media of the power transmission.
With the automatic transmission, users do not need to worry about the values of the output shaft and the pinion over setting, cause all these case shell settings are automated in a way that need not to be taken care of. Automatic transmission does not necessary need to be electronically controlled, and hydraulic automatic transmission is the main stream application in the automatic industry. The innovation of the automatic transmission is far early in the days of 1940s, but the application at that time is far from ideal. Later in the Second World War, American automotive company developed the torque converter, which can effectively change the values of torques. With this invention, drivers of tanks in the battle fields were no more worry about the stalls, especially during the combating. Automatic transmission greatly improved the combat results and the performances of the tank drivers, so later in the vehicle industry, many American based car manufacturers adopt the automatic transmission designs in their cars. However, European manufacturers were not that eager to adopt such automatic transmission mechanism, and even now, the situation is traceable.
For plastics injection molding machines, the injections are only at the middle of the whole process. Before the resins are ready to be injected, they need to be blended, propelled, heated, and well concentrated. The screws of the extrusion part collect the plastics materials poured from the hopper and then the propelling of the screws are driven by the transmission devices called gearboxes. Gearboxes here are the transmissions that receive the motor forces as the input and then with the mechanical operation, the transmissions finally give out the needed torque forces, and have that transmitted to the screw barrels. The transmission of the injection molding machine and the extrusion machine is the key mechanism that can drive the whole quality issues of the final outcome.
In the field of machinery and mechanical usages, the usages of gearboxes and transmission are a common force transmission mechanism, because the motor power needs to be well distributed and managed in order to provide a steady and stable power source as the beginning part for the following machinery operation of the whole machinery. With the help of the blueprint engineering that help developers to foreseen the mechanical operation including the force transferring and the corresponding torque control, it is now much easier to conduct the gearbox design as well as the matching of the power input such as motor and power output which is the load.
