Renowned vehicle manufacturers and automotive suppliers rely on our expertise and high-performance solutions, which are perfectly tailored to the individual requirements of modern vehicles. This results in permanently dynamic performance, maximum precision, comfort and efficiency – in the smallest installation space with reduced weight.
Job: precision-waved friction plates
0 PPM: PRÄZISION, PERFEKTION, QUALITÄT
With its precision-waved friction plates applied in automatic transmissions and dual clutches, BorgWarner has introduced a major innovation in improved shift comfort and reduced fuel consumption.
In order to create sinusoidal waves, Häussermann has developed a special heat-treatment process which enables us to manufacture these core plates to outstanding levels of precision and quality. Despite a wave heights tolerance of just a few hundredths of a millimeter, the customer acknowledges our zero-defect quality with an annual “0 ppm Award”, every year.
PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY: MAXIMUM PRECISION, LOW COSTS
The challenge: To meet the client’s high expectations of diaphragm spring precision for the new dual-mass flywheel.
The solution: A heat-treatment procedure developed in-house that virtually excludes hardening deformation, enabling the narrowest of tolerances in spring height and load.
Buses from a wide variety of manufacturers provide a better travel experience around the world thanks to HÄUSSERMANN solutions. We work closely together with our customers to continue to improve gearshift and driving comfort, reliability, continuous load capacity and efficiency in operation.
INNOVATION IS OUR TRADITION
For 20 years HÄUSSERMANN has been supplying diaphragm springs for bus transmission series ZF-ECOMAT, with a hand in every new development.
Which means that HÄUSSERMANN makes a significant contribution to the shift quality of these transmissions: smooth driving-off and shifting means enhanced ride comfort and greater safety. Customer relationships stretching over many years and a close cooperation – for the benefit of all concerned.
Ensuring permanent power, traction and damping: We are on board with leading tractor manufacturers and suppliers. HÄUSSERMANN solutions are ahead of the curve in terms of high-end performance, reliability and service life.
Job: Variable transmission
LOOKING THAT LITTLE BIT FURTHER, WITH DIAPHRAGM SPRINGS
The development of a continuously variable transmission for a new John Deere tractor series. With Häussermann responsible for the entire diaphragm spring development – from the first draft, through to series production. We not only optimize the spring load curve, but take the entire design envelope into account, too. Because if you look that little bit further, it’s surprising the new options you find.
Our solutions in construction machines and vehicles meet the most stringent requirements under extreme operating conditions. Leading construction machinery manufacturers and suppliers have relied on our expertise for many years. We set standards in every dimension.
Job: steering clutch
TECHNICAL CONSULTANCY ENABLES REDUCTION IN COSTS
Häussermann has developed an optimized solution for the steering clutch on a crawler tractor. Where as a stack of four disc springs was once required, only one diaphragm finger spring is now needed.
Resulting in drastically reduced costs for our customers.
