The Geneva drive or Maltese cross is a gear mechanism that translates a continuous rotation
into an intermittent rotary motion. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that reaches into a slot
of the driven wheel advancing it by one step. The drive wheel also has a raised circular
blocking disc that locks the driven wheel in position between steps. In this apparatus the
driven wheel has six slots and thus advances for each rotation of the drive wheel by one step
of 60°. An anodized aluminum disc is mounted on ball bearings as a driver. The disc has a
scale so that the input angle can be exactly measured. The crank pin is to use for the
movement of driven wheel. Driven Wheel is made of black anodized aluminum. All
components are fitted to a HDF fitted with rubber feet. The unit is placed on the laboratory
table for the experiment.
