powertrain


Powertrain concepts find their way to the market at an increasing pace. Reductions in CO2 and in exhaust emissions are demanded in conjunction with improving comfort and performance; not only the combustion engine but everything that is needed to bring a vehicle into motion.

To conceive and develop such systems requires a multitude of disciplines to arrive at energy and environmental friendly systems that perform satisfactory in NVH as well. We deliver several services ranging from energetic efficiency models to complete new driveline concepts. From adaptation of existing systems in new use-patterns to prototypes and concepts into series-production.

Disciplines used in this domain range from mechanical design, lubrication, (combustion) thermodynamics, controls and packaging to gears and bearings.

Our expertise is in;

  • the gear system design where area’s such as durability and NVH are considered
  • the housing designs for transmissions where area’s such as NVh and casting capability are considered
  • the packaging of powertrain components such as transmissions, hybrids, exhaust after treatment where performance and durability are considered
