Hollow transmission shaft

In double-clutch transmissions, one of the two input shafts must be designed hollow due to its function. Conventional production as a drilled solid part would significantly impair material efficiency. This part is produced hollow along its entire length purely by means of forging – the hollow space corresponds to a steel mass of 1.9 kg. This weight saving justifies the additional production steps.
