With differential gears
, if one wheel was on slippery ground, it would spin completely while no torque would be transmitted to the other wheel.
How it works:The Greek device used 30 hand-cut differential gears
fashioned from bronze.
The users watch an introductory video or animation about the operation of the differential gear
and understand its operation in two cases: (1) the car moves straight and (2) the car turns.
The team also tested and rejected more complex and costly improvements, such as shock absorbers and differential gears
1960s - GM undertook fleet testing of austempered ductile iron (ADI) differential gears
on taxicabs and achieved excellent results.
Products include powder metal engine connecting rods, engine bearing caps, engine cylinder oil jets, transmission sub assemblies, forged differential gears
and pinions, differential assemblies, engine balance shaft modules, transmission shafts, and engine crankshaft dampers.
Propeller shaft or drive shaft is a mechanical component that is used to transmit torque and rotation to the rear wheels via the differential gears
in the rear axle.
