Drive Shaft Axle Trainer

This trainer allows the instructor to demonstrate the variations in angular speeds that occur in systems that use revolving universal joints and angled drive shafts.

The unit includes two universal joints that are attached to adrive shaft driven by an electric motor. The universal joints allow the angle of the output shaft to be adjusted relative to the input shaft.

The resulting variation in output shaft speed can then be demonstrated.

Designed for group or whole-class demonstration, the trainer is mounted on a self-contained steel frame and base plate, complete with castors.

This resource is supplied with a manual containing practical tasks and activities.

The trainer may be used in conjunction with our optional cloud-based software, which offers online interactive theory presentations, investigations, and assessments covering a wide range of supporting automotive topic areas.
