CTI Mag: P3 Hybridization of Manual Transmissions

CTI Mag: P3 Hybridization of Manual Transmissions

In terms of cost and fuel efficiency, manual transmissions still take a leading position. However, solutions are needed to make them compatible with future ADAS and powertrain hybridization. The GETRAG modular upgrade concept offers a scalable approach, adding automation and electrification on a common MT platform.

CTI Mag: Modification of Surface Structure and Geometry on Gears

CTI Mag: Modification of Surface Structure and Geometry on Gears

Walter Graf, Reishauer AG, Switzerland

Demands placed on today’s automotive transmissions include, among others, low gear noise levels (NHV), weight reduction, fuel economy, increased longevity and high power density. Modify¬ing the surface structures and flank geometry can lead to higher transmission performance in line with these demands. Continuous generating grinding can contribute to higher transmission performance in several ways. This paper touches on three relevant features that generating grinding contributes to ground gears, and by extension, to the entire transmission. Two of these features, Low Noise Shifting (LNS) and Polish Grinding positively alter the surface structure, and the third, Twist Control Grinding (TCG) adds control over the gear flank geometry and the surface bearing ratios.

Post report USA 2017

The post report of the US Transmission Symposium is out now!

Increasingly, transmissions are becoming part of a connected system that extends beyond the
powertrain and the vehicle. So it’s not surprising the 11th CTI Symposium USA grew again with
now 660 participants, three-quarters of them from North America. Transmission developers’
work is becoming more and more intricate – and with electrification growing, Continue reading
