What is a motion transformer?
The transmission of motion is a mechanical function that allows the transmission of motion from one part to another without changing its nature. But we want to explain a more complex movement that changes the movement / transforms it.
These mechanisms can be reversible or not. Among the motion transmission systems, the most common are the following:
– Screw & Nut
– Rack & Pinion
– Connecting & crank
– Cam and roller system
This lesson will help you to understand the usefulness of the different mechanical transformers and allow you to choose the one that suits you best!
