Ugears STEM Lab Differential
Ugears STEM Lab Differential : Experiment: the model comes with a QR Code to download an interactive Pocket Model Study Guide which includes engaging and interesting tasks to learn more about how the Car Differential works.
Immerse yourself in Augmented Reality (AR), find out how the Counter is used in a production line, and interact with it via the dedicated U-gears application.
The Differential is a stylized educational model, an interactive study guide to the mechanism, only for learning its essentials and principles of working. This stem kit was designed to ensure that the drive wheels sitting on the same axle rotate with a different rate and cover different distances at the same time. This mechanism allows the car to make turns without the wheels skidding, prevents wheel-slip, reduces tyre wear, and makes entering and going out of turns easier for the driver. Having assembled the Differential, your can unblock it pushing the lever in position 1 (Up) and set both wheels in motion by rotation of the drive gear or the wheel. The Control lever regulates the smooth locking of the left and right wheels independently by turning left or right respectively. In the “down” position of the lever, both wheels are linked in a rigid coupling and can either rotate together (propelled by the drive gear or a wheel) or lock simultaneously (by the lever of the wheel).
Ugears STEM Lab Differential : Differentials are used mainly in cars as a part of the transmission mechanism. They improve maneuverability and performance of a car.
