A focus area for automotive manufacturers is the reduction of emissions and the improvement of fuel economy, with driveline systems now expected to house features that offer ride and safety as well as better fuel efficiency.

As driveline and drivetrain systems include components used to transfer power from the transmission and deliver it to the drive wheels, torque transfer is a major factor in improving vehicle traction, handling, stability and fuel efficiency. The development of better torque management systems is, therefore, a key growth area in the automotive industry.

Powder Metallurgy components are used in a wide range of medium to heavy duty applications in automotive engines and transmissions due to their cost effectiveness as well as weight and energy savings. Gears made by PM process have the inherent advantages in shape complexity and production rates over the traditional machining process. This advantage should translate into cost competitiveness for PM gears for similar applications.

As well as technical coverage, Powertrain Service’s report offers market share analysis of the industry, forecasts of torque management devices and advice on current OEM/supplier relationships and sourcing strategies.
