At the 11th Schaeffler Symposium, automotive and industrial supplier Schaeffler will be presenting innovative solutions for internal combustion engines and transmissions and for their hybridisation, which is becoming increasingly cost-effective.
On the one hand, it is a priority to make the powertrain as a whole and its modules and components more efficient and reduce their emissions for real driving conditions as well as to comply with expanded inspection cycles of legislators. This can be done, for example, by using a so-called rolling cylinder deactivation system and a new generation of rolling bearings for motors and transmissions that run with particularly low friction.
On the other hand, this also includes supplementing powertrains that are based on internal combustion engines with “mild” 48-volt electrification systems. The components and systems developed for this purpose by Schaeffler are focused on further significant reductions in CO2 and other emissions by means of enhanced driving strategies, such as recuperating, sailing, and boosting.
