Planetary Carrier 4 is an excellent example for design collaboration between teams with expertise in powder metal process and automotive transmission design. ZF and Stackpole technical teams defined the engineering properties required for this application through joint reviews of initial bench test results and shortened the development cycle through successful simultaneous development.Stackpole International, although did not have design responsibility, undertook the bench testing and established better options for material selection.
