The Variator is a mechanism which adjusts the force of the engine by alternating the gears ratio. Most drivers and car enthusiasts are familiar with CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). The Ugears Variator STEM lab model embodies this key part of an automobile, so there is no need to get your hands dirty in order to grasp the principle!
In 1879 Milton Othello Reeves, a prominent US businessman, came up with a mechanism for sawmills. Later this transmission got fitted to car engines. Now the CVT is used in a variety of machines requiring a smooth changing of gear ratios. These include cars, motorboats, quad bikes, conveyor belts and many more.
