High Torque Pushbelt Cvt P930, Design and Test Results
Published September 25, 1997 by Institution of Mechanical Engineers in United Kingdom
Twenty-five years experience in the design of the pushbelt type of Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) has recently resulted in the design of the P930 transmission. The P930 project was started to allow a new customer the chance to evaluate CVT technology using a transmission according to his requirements.
State-of-the-art development techniques and rapid prototyping were used to reduce the development lead time and to achieve optimal results. An extensive test program was carried out. This has resulted in a high torque prototype CVT, setting new standards with respect to torque capacity, performance and fuel economy.
This paper gives an overview of the design process and the achieved technical results.
