Hybrid Steering Shaft: 35 % Less Weight
- 21 Downloads
35 % less weight with lightweight design costs of less than € 5/kg: the new hybrid steering shaft, a lightweight tube-in-tube solution with aluminum yokes developed for optimum power flow, represents significant progress in comparison with the reference steering shaft. Its modular design also offers maximum flexibility. Depending on specific customer requirements, the universal joint’s aluminum yokes can be replaced in whole or in part with steel yokes. The high-performance polymer which is used enables the sliding connection to temporarily withstand temperatures up to 200 °C.
