Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19546366A1] The invention concerns a valve gear mechanism for an internal combustion engine, the valve gear mechanism comprising a mechanism for a variable valve control system, with a shaft (1) having an axis of rotation (D), with a rotary body (10) mounted so as to rotate relative to the shaft (1), and with an intermediate member (20) which surrounds the shaft (1), is disposed adjacent the rotary body (10) in the axial direction, and is rotatable relative to the shaft (1). The intermediate member (20) is drivingly connected via a first sliding guide (15) and a first transmission element (40, 50) to the shaft (1) and via a second sliding guide (16) and a second transmission element (70) to the rotary body (10). Provided between the rotary body (10) and the intermediate member (20) is a third sliding guide (30) which acts as a support between the rotary body (10) and the intermediate member (20) and simultaneously permits a relative movement between the rotary body (10) and the intermediate member (20) in a direction perpendicular to the axis of rotation (D).
