AAM showcases technology portfolio at Shanghai engineering conference

AAM manufactures a range of powertrain components including Powder Metallurgy connecting rods


The SAE-China Congress and Exhibition (SAECCE) and the 19th Asia Pacific Automotive Engineering Congress combine product display and technical discussions into one event attended by China’s top automaker and supplier community.

This year American Axle & Manufacturing showcased a portfolio of driveline, metal forming, powertrain and casting technologies focused on increased efficiency and improved performance.

Held in Shanghai, more than 2,000 industry experts and more than 10,000 visitors attended the conference’s display area and technical sessions including paper presentations and panel discussions.

AAM’s display included e-AAMTM Hybrid and Electric Driveline Systems, EcoTrac® Disconnecting AWD technology, propshaft, vibration control systems, light and heavy-duty commercial vehicle axles, transmission technology and forged products.

AAM has eight facilities in China which engineer and manufacture driveline, powertrain and metal forming technologies for local customers. AAM continues to grow in China and recently transitioned key driveline system production to be near local customers.
