There was a lot happening at the Schaeffler display (booth #A2233) during AAPEX 2022.
The company showcased a complete aftermarket portfolio with the emphasis on e-mobility. This included chassis and powertrain components.
Focusing on the future of e-mobility, is Schaeffler’s OE 800-volt 3in1 e-axle that incorporates the inventor, electric motor and transmission.
Schaeffler also displayed its Modular Hybrid Transmission (MHT) module for the Ford Explorer hybrid, another OE product that combines an electric motor with a torque converter. It enables OEMs like Ford to utilize smaller displacement engines for reduced emissions but at the same time, offer far greater torque output by combining those engines and with these MHT modules.
On the more traditional side, Schaeffler also displayed its Gen2 and Gen3 bearings that embody innovative features that only improve performance; but integrate more functional aspects of modern braking systems including harnesses and ABS sensors.
Schaeffler, through its INA brand, also offers high-quality OEM timing kits, including a complete kit with three chains, guides, sprockets and valves for the GM high feature 3.6-litre V6 engine.
Although you don’t tend to hear much conversation around clutch assemblies and flywheels today, Schaeffler continues to invest in the technology via its LuK brand that provides OE grade performance and quality.
Another interesting product is Schaeffler’s line of aftermarket automatic transmission torque converters for Ford 6F35 transmissions. “We are the first company to sell a brand-new automatic torque converter,” said Michael Cargill, Category Manager, Product Management, AAM Americas North for Schaeffler, who noted that the product line continues to expand with more applications coming soon.”
