Gear differential soft lock

 

The invention relates to the field of engineering. Gear differential includes half-shaft gear and satellites are installed on the same axis and are made integral with the sleeves. The inner surface of the bushings one satellite has a longitudinal straight grooves with a depth of half the ball. The outer surface of the sleeve of the second satellite has a sinusoidal groove. The sleeve of the second satellite is placed into the sleeve of the first satellite. Balls placed between the sleeves in the above-mentioned grooves. When the rotation of the satellites carry the balls, and the balls vary, and the higher the frequency of these fluctuations, the greater the force of friction between the satellites, which creates a blocking effect. The technical result - improved terrain vehicles. 3 Il.

The prior art. In bridges BTR-60 PB and bridges of the GAZ-66 is used Cam self locking differentials. Work Cam conventional prefilled auto-disable differential is based on a large friction between the sprocket axes.

Most cars of domestic and foreign production are equipped with gear differentials. The main disadvantage of the gear differential is low t is greet the drive in the ice and on the road.

Summary of the invention In Fig.1 depicts a differential gear of a soft block, where 1 - differential housing 2 - satellite made integral with the small sleeve. On the outer surface of the small sleeve has a groove depth of half the ball 4 with sinusoidal curvature. In Fig.2 shows a scan of the outer surface of the small sleeve, 3 - gear axes, 5 - axis, 6 - satellite made integral with the large sleeve of Fig. 3 depicts a large bushing, end view. On the inner surface of the large sleeve has a longitudinal straight grooves with a depth of half the ball 4, 7 - axis satellites. Small sleeve satellite 2 is placed in a large sleeve satellite 6. The number of balls is determined by the number of longitudinal straight grooves on the inner surface of the large sleeve satellite 6.

When driving in a straight difference of revolutions of the gear axes 3 will be zero, in this case, the satellites do not rotate.

When changing direction of movement of the car the difference in speed gears 3 will be small and satellites 2 and 6 will rotate in opposite directions on the axis 7, the balls 4, the influence of the walls of the longitudinal straight grooves large sleeve satellite 6, will ride along with the th differential.

When spin one wheel the difference of revolutions of the gear axes increases dramatically will increase the speed of the satellites, and therefore will increase the speed of the balls. Moving along a sinusoidal groove, the balls will produce oscillatory motion, and the higher the speed, the higher the oscillation frequency and the higher the friction force between the satellites and the force of rotation is transmitted not slipping wheel.

Changing the number of peaks of the sinusoidal grooves, or by changing the diameter of the bushings, will change the oscillation frequency of the balls. So you can install the necessary difference of revolutions of the gear axes, which will be blocking effect.

The technical result - improved terrain off-road and road cars.
