Gear components combined for a more efficient transmission
2020 - PACE Award Finalist
What: Compact coaxial transmission for e-axle
Innovation: Schaeffler developed a transmission for e-axles that consists of a planetary gearset combined with a spur gear differential, in a shared housing with the e-motor A-shield. The packaging arrangement requires less space and delivers 30 percent more torque density than conventional transmissions. The improved efficiency also enables passive lubrication with a minimal amount of lubricant.
