PM parts specialist GKN says that it will be leading discussion on drivetrain technology at the VDI Congress, taking place at the beginning of July in Bonn, Germany.

Discussions will center on the topic from research institutes, manufacturers and engineering companies.

‘Although electrified gearboxes will be less complex, they face higher requirements for torque and rotation speeds,’ the company said. ‘An RPM of 14,000 to 16,000 will be normal. Our agenda for the conference will be to first discuss how surface densified transmission gears can make the difference in the future mobile world. PM technology can provide significant benefits on performance and noise vibration harshness (NVH), which is a crucial aspect in the development of hybrid and electrical vehicles.’
