Application

Steel switching mechanism for a manual transmission. With this mechanism, movements of the shifting fingers are transferred to the transmission according to the shifting pattern.

Advantages

  • No machining required
  • Smooth, wear-resistant surface
  • Component is delivered ‘ready for use’
  • High-quality surface guarantees smooth shifting

Advantage of the CIREX casting process

‘Near Net Shape’ (NNS) design is avoid need for machining. After calibration this part is case-hardened for the hard surface with retention of the tough inner part. The design freedom of the casting process makes the shifting arm string. Ribs are added to the design only at places where this is necessary to maintain strength.
