IAA 2009

Highlighted at the exhibit are start of mass production of 8-speed automatic transmission and proposal of automatic transmission for front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicles.

 

1. 8 Speed Automatic Transmission and components
-3 transmission sizes from 300 to 1,000 Nm
-Can be combined with various starting systems
-Designed as mild or full hybrid
-Installed vehicles: Bentley Mulsanne, BMW 5 Series GT
8HP 90 Powershift Transmission HCC Hydrodynamically Cooled Clutch
   
Image   Image  
-8HP 90 Powershift Transmission
(Input Torque up to 900Nm)
-Reduced mass moment of inertia and weight
-Optimized shifting times and good starting capacity
-Particularly suitable for sports cars to increase starting dynamics
Triple-line converter Dynastart electric motor (1.5kW)
   
Image   Image  
-Good efficiency and reduced mass inertia
-Strategy-compatible lock up clutch
-Good efficiency during starting and shifting operation
-All mild and full hybrid functions are possible
-15-25% less consumption
-Integration into parallel hybrid transmission
-irrespective of installation space available

8HP 45 Powershift Transmission Triple-line Converter
   
Image   Image  

8HP 45 Powershift Transmission
(Input Torque up to 450Nm)

   
Vane cell pump Planetary gear sets
   
Image   Image  
-Only conveys the oil quantity needed
-Reduced power loss
-4 gear sets with just 2 opened shift elements per gear
-Minimized drag losses
-Gear efficiency of more than 98% in every gear
Transmission Control Unit Hydraulic Impulse Oil storage (HIS)
   
Image   Image  
-Optimized operating points and shifting times
-NIC (Neutral Idle Control) reduces drag torque when the vehicle is stationary
-Makes stop/start function possible
-Facilitates stop/start function and another 5% fuel savings
-Space-saving integration into the transmission
-No additional oil pump required
8HP 55 powershift transmission with all-wheel-drive (Torsen)
 
Image  
All Wheel Drive transfer case:
-Torque on demand (ToD) Torque transfer as needed to the front axle
-Lubricating-oil supply through the base transmission
-Potential fuel reduction approx. 1.5%

 

2. Presentation of Automatic Transmission for FWD vehicles
-While ZF appears to have in the past offered its automatic transmission for luxurious vehicles, it is now presenting the automatic for compact vehicles.
Automatic Transmission for vehicles with FWD
