Ferris wheel is the landmark of a park, even a mark of the city, so it is one of the necessary ride among each park.
The mechanical structure contains a rotating upright wheel with multiple gondolas attached to the wheel rim due to gravity.
The gondola which hold passengers would rotate 360 degree gradually along the wheel, so passengers can overlook the city beautiful landscape. As a mixture of sight view and entertainment function.
Based on difference of operating mechanism, Ferris wheel can be divided into gravity Ferris wheel and observation wheel.
Gravity Ferris wheel cabins hung on the wheel, maintaining horizontal level by virtue of gravity; while, observation wheel carts are suspended outside the wheel which requires more complex connecting rod mechanical structure to remain level accompanied by gondola circling.
The Ferris wheel operating is: the motor transform high rotation speed and low toque mechanical power into high torque and low rotation speed mechanical power under the reducer action, then the mechanical power is transferred to wheel disc through tire or other intermediary organization with elasticity and strength.
