Moover Linear Stage Variations

Two months ago I described the differential belt transmission in general terms; this month revisits it in our Moover linear stage project. This project explored several design questions through conceptual prototypes, each varying an aspect of the differential belt transmission. See the Moover project page for detail and video of each stage variant. After that, maybe have a look at our updated products and services pages?

As always, comment on Twitter or LinkedIn, and subscribe to see next month's mechanism.
