GEAR LESS POWER TRANSMISSION WITH SCOTCH YOKE MECHANISM
|Project Model- Gearless Power Transmission|
This is a Mechanical final year project work on Gearless Transmission which is a compact and portable equipment, which is skillful and is having something practice in the transmitting power at right angle without any gears being manufactured. This project is the equipment useful to improve the quality of the gear being manufactured and can be made in less time. This project uses El-bow mechanism which is an ingenious link mechanism of slider and kinematic chain principle. This is also called as “gearless transmission mechanism” and is very useful for transmitting motion at right angles.
About Scotch Yoke Mechanism

The Scotch yoke (also known as slotted link mechanism ) is a reciprocating motion mechanism, converting the linear motion of a slider into rotational motion, or vice versa. The piston or other reciprocating part is directly coupled to a sliding yoke with a slot that engages a pin on the rotating part. The location of the piston versus time is a sine wave of constant amplitude, and constant frequency given a constant rotational speed.
