Description

A gear comprises at least one drive, an output and a frame. Gear drives are uniform
translation gears. The rotary motion is transferred from one shaft to a second through
positive transmission by gears. In spur gears, the gears are mounted on parallel axles. The
drive and the output shaft are arranged in parallel. Planetary gears are a type of spur gears,
in which the drive and the output shafts are on the same axle. The rail is locked in experiments
with spur gears. Depending on the aim of the experiment, one or two additional axles can be
positioned on the rail. The gears can be coupled to each other via driving pins or to the fixed
axle. It is driven by hand. unit can be used to study gear drives in the form of spur or planetary
gears.
