The gear teeth are eleotromagnetically held 111 engagement, without actually con tacting. The teeth of the driving gear are magnetised by means of suitable coils, while the teeth of the driven gear serve in pairs as armatures for the magnetised teeth. Of course such an arrangement would hardly be suit ablo for slow, hoavy work, because the cost of current would ho greater than that of lubricating oil and the loss due to friction, but for light, high-speed work_the_eIectro-magnctic engagement t aceousi.
