Innovative rotor-carrier production for hybrid transmissions launched

Fischer & Kaufmann expands the area of electromobility with the start-up of a fully automated production line for clutch carriers.

Together with a leading German OEM, FIUKA faced the challenge of designing a one-piece solution for the rotor carrier of a hybrid double clutch. After going through numerous development and testing stages, the technical advantage of the presented concept has proven itself.

The patented process, in which a forged part is further processed by flow-forming and then goes through precise machining, an integrated hardening process and several other operations, delivers excellent runout tolerances without deformation, as no follow-up hardening or welding processes are required.

The production hall has been completely modernized and is now already equipped with a total of eleven machines. Modular expansion is possible at any time and is already on the agenda for 2021.
FIUKA is now already producing at nearly full capacity in three-shift mode since the middle of 2020. The project is an important milestone on the road to electromobility.
