CTI Symposia – keeping pace with progress

The automotive industry is developing fast – and so are our CTI Symposia. What began nearly 20 years ago as a specialist get-together for the transmission industry has now grown to become a leading Drivetrain Engineering congress and exhibition platform.

Our symposia on Intelligent, Electrified Automotive Drivetrains are specifically dedicated to the challenges and solutions of new energy vehicles.

  • even more forward-looking technology
  • even more important topics
  • even more knowledge-sharing opportunities

An editorial interview with reigning F1 World Champion Nico Rosberg

Obviously I still think a 12-cylinder AMG or Ferrari is brilliant. It gives you goose bumps. But there’s a place for everything, and autonomous driving and electric cars are just as fascinating.

CTI Mag: HOERBIGER SlimLINE creates Space for Hybrid Drives

CTI Mag: HOERBIGER SlimLINE creates Space for Hybrid Drives

Worldwide demand for advanced hybrid technologies for vehicles is growingunabated. These technologies offer a combination of high range, low fuel consumption, and minimal emissions. At the same time, modern combustion engine-based drivetrains leave little room for the integration of additional necessary components. The innovative design of the HOERBIGER SlimLINE synchronizer saves installation space as well as weight and opens up valuable design freedom for hybrid vehicles. Transmission manufacturers can utilize the extra space for an additional electric motor, for example.

CTI Mag: Further CO2 savings thanks to Electric Transmission Oil Pumps

CTI Mag: Further CO2 savings thanks to Electric Transmission Oil Pumps

Conventional, mechanically driven oil pumps must provide the power required under maximum load at each speed in the transmission. In general, under real operating conditions these pumps waste not only valuable energy, but also material and space. Electric oil pumps, on the other hand, provide the power which is actually required at the load points. Further efficiency gains in the transmission are thus possible.
