Training T1 – All about gear transmissions

This training took place online on February 25th 2021. It was entitled “All about gear transmissions” , and it was organised by Magna Powertrain.

About this event

This LIVE-I public training provides an insight how Magna Powertrain’s innovations ensure a sustainable route to energy-efficient, modern mobility.

It focuses on basic transmission knowledge of conventional vehicle transmissions, lay-shaft transmissions, transmission internal functional groups combined with current lightweight concepts, combining sustainable technologies with cutting-edge methods during the design, manufacturing process to reduce gear whine as well as on semi-active damping systems in-front of and inside vehicle transmissions to suppress broadband noises as a means to drive CO2 emissions reductions forward.

The training ends with an introduction into the increasing electrification and hybrid technology of vehicle powertrains to further minimize the energy footprint.
