Höganäs promotes the benefits of Powder Metallurgy transmission technology

The world’s first six-speed manual transmission containing Powder Metallurgy gear technology

Höganäs and the Powder Metal Gearbox Initiative once again teamed up to display the world’s first six-speed manual transmission containing Powder Metallurgy gear technology at the International Congress – Drivetrain for Vehicles, which took place June 21-22 in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

The Powder Metal Gearbox Initiative (PMGI) is a major collaborative industry development project initiated and coordinated by Höganäs and twelve leading technology providers, partners and component suppliers.

The overall objective of the project is to prove the concept, potential benefits and implementation readiness of Powder Metallurgy gear technology in modern automotive transmissions. At Drivetrain for Vehicles the team updated delegates on its latest achievements.

By redesigning and prototyping optimised PM gear designs, the transmission demonstrates the functionality and the full potential of stress, weight and inertia reduction, while meeting typical OEM duty life cycle and durability requirements.
