Amsted Automotive will showcase advanced technologies key to future powertrain development at the 2024 CTI Symposium, taking place in Novi, Michigan, May 15-16, 2024. During the event, the company will demonstrate its three core business units: Means Industries, Burgess-Norton and Transform Automotive.

The automotive industry has seen rapid development of propulsion systems for electric vehicles, and there are reportedly considerable opportunities for improved efficiency, component packaging and customer benefits in this segment. At the same time, hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) can benefit from many of these advanced EV powertrain technologies. And automakers need to continue improving internal combustion engines (ICE) as they still comprise the majority of vehicles sold in the US and around the world.

Amsted Automotive’s Means Industries business unit has developed a controllable clutch that optimises Powershift systems enabling extended EV driving range, reducing package requirements and lowering costs. The company’s Dynamic Controllable Clutch (DCC) is an electro-mechanical eaxle disconnect that is intended to provide seamless shifting technology and performance in all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive applications while significantly extending the battery range.

The DCC incorporates a Powder Metallurgy notch plate and pocket plate, produced by Burgess-Norton.

Burgess-Norton will also showcase its Powder Metallurgy technology in multiple applications, including the notch and pocket plates, as well as sprockets, cam plates, gears and more.

Transform Automotive will display advanced manufacturing capabilities with an electric motor housing and battery tray for EV and HEV applications.
