A GKN round table discussion on powder metal shaped components for automotive electrification.

GKN Powder Metallurgy says that it plans to exhibit at Dritev, previously the VDI Transmission Conference, taking place from 27-28 June 2018 in Bonn, Germany.

‘Our powder metal manufactured products currently span from components used in various X-by-wire applications (e.g. brake-by-wire, shift-by-wire and many ‘comfort-by-wire’ applications) to soft electromagnetic material-based actuation components and very compact and lightweight full-PM g-rotor pumps for lubrication, cooling or aggressive additive liquids,’ the company said.  

At Dritev the company plans to present applications where PM based products could help to make electrified systems smaller, lighter and performance-driven, including a range of forged PM (FPM) drivetrain components.
