Why You Need a Partial Continuously Variable Transmission Line

Why You Need a Partial Continuously Variable Transmission LineLearn more about partial continuously variable transmission lines and the Honda line available for purchase now.  

A few decades ago, most cars were made with three pedals, and anyone who wished to drive had to learn about clutching. Today, vehicles feature various gearbox arrangements, each with individual positives and negatives.

The introduction of these gearboxes reflects the different types of transmission currently available. These include (1) automatic transmission – AT, manual transmission – MT, automated manual transmission – AM, continuously variable transmission – CVT, and partial continuously variable transmission.

This article takes you through the advantages of a partial continuously variable transmission manufacturing line.

Why You Need a Partial Continuously Variable Transmission Line

Benefits of using partial continuously variable transmission line

The partial continuously variable transmission line is an automatic transmission that operates based on steel bands and pulleys rather than the traditional fixed gears. The term partial is used because you do not necessarily need to buy the entire line. Instead, you can simply buy equipment from the line, and you are good to go.

Manufacturers prefer partial continuous variable transmission because it makes them energy-efficient and reduces lead time, among other benefits discussed here.

#1: Speeds up production

Partial CVT ensures your industrial equipment operates optimally and at the best pace possible. As a result, your system’s productivity increases to more than the typical levels.

#2: Reduces lead time

As competition becomes stiff for businesses, they must deliver products to the market in the shortest time possible. Partial CVT streamlines sections of your manufacturing process, effectively cutting down on the lead time.

#3: Lower production costs

When working with a CNC turning machine, partial CTV ensures that you have the least moving parts compared to traditional automatics. As such, the cost of production goes down.

#4: Outstanding energy efficiency

Today’s businesses are focused on becoming energy efficient. That’s mainly because energy cost is rising and shows little signs of the trend changing. As such, manufacturers are embracing partial CVT as their strategy to remain energy-efficient and keep energy costs at their lowest. As the name suggests, the partial continuously variable transmission is ever-adjusting, keeping the engine consistent.

#5: Smooth operation

Using partial CTV ensures smooth operation of your equipment because the transmission is not required to constantly switch gears.

#6: Has a simple structure

Partial CVT has a simple structure because it contains fewer mechanical parts compared to traditional gear transmission. The CVT box has adjustable pulleys interconnected using a belt. As your system runs, the pulleys move near and away from each other. The advantage of having such a structure is that you end up experiencing less wear and tear.

Areas of application for partial CVT

Partial CVT applications are widespread. These include:

#1: Automobiles

CVT was first introduced in car manufacturing in 1958. Since then, different automobiles have incorporated the technology in their systems. For instance, the 1996 6th Gen Honda Civic was created as a pulley-based CVT featuring a torque converter to eliminate idle creep.

Today, you can get the Honda CVT line in bulk or as individual pieces that include:

  • 2015 Studer S41 CNC Universal Cylindrical Grinders,
  • 2014 DMG Mori CL-2000B CNC Lathes,
  • Accretech Automatic Measuring Machines,
  • Donaldson Torit Mist Collectors,
  • Morigo Seiki Rotary Parts Washers, and
  • Honda Lapping Machines

CVTs have continued to gain popularity since the 1990s and introduced various models like the 1998 Nissan Cube, 1999 Audi A6, and 1999 Rover. Some terms used to market CVT are Xtronic, Lineartronic, IVT, and Autotornic.

#2: Power generation systems

Partial CVTs have applications in aircraft electrical power generation systems. As the running engine produces enough power, it is connected to the partial CVT to regulate its speed.

#3: Earthmoving equipment

Partial CVTs can be used in various earthmoving equipment, including combined harvesters, self-propelled mowers, and small tractors. When performing harvesting or mowing operations, the CVT makes it possible to adjust the engine speed independently. That gives the machine operator control over when to slow and accelerate.

#4: Small vehicles

Many small vehicles operate based on partial CVT, mainly the pulley variety. These include motor scooters, golf carts, and snowmobiles. The CVTs installed in these vehicles typically contain non-stretching fixed circumference manufactured out of flexible and durable material. In other cases, the scooter may contain a centrifugal clutch to manually reverse the scooter.

#5: Other uses

There are several other uses of partial CVTs, including in milling machines and drilling presses. You can also have bicycles that contain CVT gearing, but these haven’t gained a lot of commercial success.
