4th Drive Transmission Gear
Benefit: Improved Performance
Main Forming Process: Conventional Processing
End Use Sector: Automotive


This component has been developed to exploit and demonstrate the full potential of technical possibilities and enduser benefits when deploying a holistic (novel materialprocess- design) engineering approach with PM. This project has enabled the constitution of a major European PM industry effort together with 12 more tech partners and suppliers from the entire pm value chain, and resulted in the world’s first design optimized 6 speed manual transmission designed for PM gear technology.
