Audi AG for the Low Pressure Oil Pump Assembly for Transmission Dry-Sump Lubrication with FTE automotive and the Oil Distribution System with Roechling Automotive

Audi saw a way to gain significant benefits including emission reductions of 2/gm/kilometer of CO2, weight reduction and end of life recycling by changing transmission oil distribution. They worked together with FTE toward the elimination of the high speed pump and with Roechling who developed an oil gear pan with high precision injection molding ports.

Together these supplier innovations result in an oil delivery system used in the Audi S-tronic transmission. In essence, the oil is dripped from the Roechling plastic encased cavity between the transmission housing and onto the gears after being pumped into the cavity by the FTE low speed oil pump.
