Abstract: The paper describes the design and examines the principle of operation of the transmission with intermediate rolling elements. The transmission has small dimensions in the radial direction and good assembly properties. It comprises compound rollers, and periodic slots are formed by several cams. The number of rolling elements involved in the load transfer has been found. The dependences for strength calculation of the transmission and recommendations on the choice of its basic geometric parameters are given.

Keywords: cylindrical transmission; speed reducers; rolling elements; periodic slots; cams; stress; strength calculations.
