New technologies drive vehicles towards a sustainable future

Schaeffler (UK) has published a new brochure outlining the Group's comprehensive range of systems and components for internal combustion engine-powered vehicles, hybrid vehicles and all-electric vehicles. 

The new brochure, entitled 'Driving Towards a Sustainable Future', looks at a series of innovative engineering solutions developed by The Schaeffler Group which are helping manufacturers of traditional internal combustion engine-powered vehicles to produce more compact, lightweight vehicles that deliver improved fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.

Although the internal combustion engine (ICE) is likely to dominate the automotive landscape for the next decade, the increasing mismatch between energy consumption and available resources, together with tighter legal restrictions on pollution, is creating an increased demand for improvements to existing automotive technologies and the development of 'greener' alternatives.

Schaeffler is already successfully partnering with a number of major automotive manufacturers to co-develop more energy-efficient solutions for ICE-powered vehicles. These solutions include a lightweight balancer shaft and rolling bearing assembly; UniAir, the world's first fully variable hydraulic valve control system, co-developed with Fiat Powertrain; the ball roller bearing; and the FAG wheel bearing, which provides simplified mounting and is 10% lighter than its predecessor.

Another development project at Schaeffler involves the use of novel, optimised engine components, which when combined, achieve an overall 10% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Schaeffler's CO2ncept-10% is a CO2 demonstration vehicle based on a Porsche Cayenne with a V8 engine.
