Transmission - Passenger Cars
In recent years, the focus for vehicle manufacturers has been on transmissions with more gearing, to increase combustion engine efficiency. But for hybrid and electric vehicles, the evolution is towards much simpler mechanisms.
Within a few years, we’ll see norms of 1-speed transmissions for electric powertrains, and 2-speed for higher-powered vehicles.
With Kendrion’s highly customizable solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric car transmissions, manufacturers can achieve a good transmission ratio in a compact design. And our latest product, hydraulic actuators with activation valve and locking solenoid, help ensure that the transmission functions smoothly, and locks safely and reliably in parking position.
Transmission - Trucks and Special Vehicles
Clutches are a critical component in vehicles with automatic and power shift transmissions. For tough industrial applications, truck and special vehicle OEMs and transmission suppliers need extremely robust clutches: ones that can withstand considerable abuse.
Kendrion is proud to drive innovation in power transmission. As a leading manufacturer of power transmission solutions in commercial vehicles, we offer electric and magnetic clutches for switching auxiliary units, hydraulic pumps, water pumps or vacuum pumps. Our clutch controls help ease clutch actuation, improving driver comfort and vehicle safety through optimized gearshift operations.
Sturdy, reliable and easy to service, our products are proving their performance in fire engines, garbage trucks, sewer cleaners and Pistonbully snow management vehicles.
