Design

We create intelligent and economical solutions

We meet the increasingly complex demands on the functionality and efficiency of powertrains using an effective, perfected and start-to-finish process for developing transmissions and hybrid systems. Our attention is also focused on developing new and derivative transmissions to the point at of mass production. To do this, our experienced experts in designing transmission mechanics, hydraulics and electro-mechanics employ state-of-the-art design and simulation tools – some developed in-house – as well as a wide range of CAD and PDM systems. We use our particular strengths in optimizing product design: close cooperation with all of the development and production departments involved as well as our vast experience in product range and vendor management.

Our field of competence:

  • Production-ready design of components, function assemblies, complete transmission and hybrid systems and their periphery
  • Definition of requirements specifications and product specifications
  • Systematic dimensioning of mechanical elements in the transmission assembly on the basis of load collectives
  • Layout, design (3D) and production of drawings (2D) for developing:
    • Clutch and converter systems
    • Transmission mechanics
    • Synchronization, internal shifting and shift elements
    • Electromechanical and hydraulic actuator systems
    • Hydraulic control and transmission-oil circulation
    • Electric machines
    • Casings
    • Transmission periphery
  • 1D, 2D, 3D tolerance simulation (statistical, cross-assembly)
  • Product data management and competence in CAD methodology
  • D-FMEA
  • Vendor and product range management
