  • Patent number: 6508347
    Abstract: The present invention concerns a clamping roller switch gear (1) whose drive element (10) can be displaced in opposite directions out of an idling, initial position by actuation of a pivoting lever (3). A driven element (coupling ring 15) of the clamping roller switch gear (1) and the drive element (10) define, together with opposing clamping surfaces, wedge-shaped clamping gaps (37, 38) that taper in opposite directions. In these clamping gaps (37, 38) are arranged clamping rollers (39) that, in the initial position of the drive element (10), are kept out of clamping engagement with the clamping surfaces by a first housing-fixed stop (42).
