Mechanical Power Transmission

Twin Disc Transmission excels in well stimulation.

November 20, 2014

Featuring counter shaft design, TA90-7601 Power Shift Transmission offers expected L10 life of 10,000 hours. Coaxial, 9-speed unit can be power shifted under all loaded or unloaded conditions without any throttle dipping within range-to-range shifts. Flexible coupling allows transmission to be installed on engine's dry flywheel housing, minimizing torsional excitations by engine and pump. Transmission has max gross input power rating up to 1,939 kW (2,600 hp) at 1,900 rpm. Read More

All-Wheel Drive System incorporates disconnect function.

October 15, 2014

Intended for A-, B- and C-segment vehicle platforms, Disconnect All-Wheel Drive System responds to driver inputs and road conditions by connecting and disengaging drive to rear axle to enhance traction, dynamics, stability, and on-highway fuel efficiency. Monoblock housing fully integrates propshaft's constant velocity joint. Other features include power transfer unit, electro-mechanically actuated clutch in rear axle, dedicated driveline control unit, and active torque biasing function.

Disconnecting All Wheel Drive lowers fuel consumption, emissions.

December 27, 2013

EcoTrac™ minimizes effect of inertia and drag on vehicle's driveline system by disconnecting select rotating components from driveline when not needed (while in front-wheel drive). Specifically, system disconnects at power transfer unit (PTU) and rear drive module (RDM) to allow portions of driveline – PTU and RDM hypoid gear sets and associated bearings and driveshaft – to discontinue rotating. This enables all-wheel-drive functionality without decreasing fuel economy or adding to emissions.
