Transmission and Gearshift

  • From gearshift transmission to dual clutch transmission
  • Differential technology
  • Shift systems
.... hofer powertrain is THE leading systems partner.
We develop all components, modules and systems, master shift quality, work with virtual and real test benches, calculate series production and guarantee production start-up.
The transmission has become a central element of the powertrain, and not only because of increased interest in recent years. As a torque and speed converter and as an intelligent system it contributes decisively to lowering consumption while simultaneously increasing driving pleasure. In Europe, more and more automatic shift systems are appearing. The challenges of the present and the future include optimal gear selection for best-possible specific consumption in shifting-down dynamics and vehicle response behaviour, as well as a high degree of efficiency.
Perfection in mechanics, hydraulic control, electronics and software – our specialists are on the cutting edge of technology and are already working today on the drive concepts of tomorrow.
