Two Become One - Monoblock Input Shaft with Ready-for-assembly Lamellae Splines Saves Development and Production Costs

As system complexity in hybrid powertrains increases, so does the number of components required, thereby causing the costs for these systems to rise. This applies to the costs per unit, logistics costs as well as to investments in development and tools. An effective way of countering these cost increases is to reduce the number of components and suppliers and to eliminate manufacturing steps. The success of this approach can be illustrated by means of an input shaft for a double-clutch…
