Getting to Electric: New Designs and Processes for EV Powertrains
Smaller, cheaper, better are the keys to the next generation of electrified powertrain components. Limited driving ranges—and the concurrent range anxiety—make all-electric driving unfeasible for some car owners, while the additional cost for hybrid vehicles is a market barrier.
At the same time, the reversed torque flow during the energy recuperation phase of electric driving puts additional strain on drivetrain components.
Optimizing the efficiency of every component and/or reducing its weight is critical, while reducing costs remains essential. Continue reading

Are trucks overtaking?
Strange as it may seem, trucks are catching up fast as progress on passenger cars slows. In some respects, they are even taking the lead.
12th CTI Symposium USA gives trucks a major platform.
With top-notch experts, a dedicated lecture series and three plenum presentations, trucks will be high on our agenda. Continue reading
Product innovation: Fineblanking on Every Press – with WEBO Fine Blanking Pad

Product innovation: Torque Sensors for High Volume Production Applications
Magnetoelastic sensors are the first solution that allows measuring torque and other forces economically so that it can be integrated into high volume applications. The current status quo for force measurements – strain gauge type sensors – require extensive manual labour during application, fault susceptible telemetries and recalibration due to aging effects, making them expensive and difficult to integrate.
Product innovation: HOERBIGER presents two new highly efficient shift elements
The TorqueLINE Twin Cone replaces traditional multi-disc clutches, reducing drag losses by as much as 90 percent. The system offers high power density and decreases actuation forces by up to 60 percent.
