ASCO Sintering Co. Custom Manufacturers New Advanced Shift by Wire Components for the Automotive Industry

Effective September 1st 2015 ASCO Sintering Co. will begin supplying a tier 1 automotive supplier with new multiple automotive sintered components used in 2016 MY “Shift by Wire” technology for effortless gear shifting.

The Compound gear, Output Gear, Trigger Arm, Trigger link and couplings are net shape and were custom engineered and produced using a broad spectrum of  advanced powder metallurgy solutions and materials ranging from Copper infiltrated steel, bearing grade steel, 316 stainless steel and sinter hardened steel.

ASCO production processes maintain specification and quality levels above 5 sigma for these critical parts that are linked to the performance and critical safety features of the vehicle’s effortless shifting mechanism planned for initial launch in SE Asia before World-wide distribution.

In addition Special packaging has been developed to facilitate the transport and final assembly of the components from Los Angeles to the respective plants. All of the parts have successfully passed PPAP requirements and will be primarily used in luxury higher end vehicles.

The Shift by Wire system is becoming increasingly popular with OEM’s as automotive companies look for ways to reduce weight, save space, improve reliability and better integrate the drive train and shift mechanisms into increasingly electronic vehicles.
