Gear: lightweighting idea

As part of an internal project at Hirschvogel, a power-split transmission from a hybrid powertrain was analyzed. The series parts served as the starting point for developing lightweighting ideas. These either pushed the forging possibilities to the limits or were made possible by means of machining. This part demonstrates how significant weight savings are possible compared to the series part.
