One-piece, force-locking compensating coupling made from plastic
The compensating coupling presented here can be inexpensively produced by injection moulding. In contrast to conventional plastic couplings of comparable size and weight, higher torques can be transferred.
Switchable crash absorber
Here we present a newly developed crash absorber for cars with two different conditions for different impact situations. The first condition offers maximal protection for pedestrians, the second condition improves the protection of the car if no pedestrians are involved.
Brake dust collector with venturi suction generator for active boundary layer manipulation
For efficient collection of brake or tire dust, this present brake dust collector uses an air feed to shed the dust containing boundary layer off the surface. The suction needed, is provided by a venturi nozzle at the inner surface of the vehicle wheel.
Brake dust filter hood with final separator and vortex generator for passive manipulation of the boundary layer
For passive collection of brake dust, the present brake dust collector uses a final separator to remove the dust containing boundary layer from the surface and guide it into filter mats. The removal of the dust becomes even more efficient by integration of a vortex generator inside the hood.
Utility vehicle lightweight chassis with build-in wheel alignment mechanism
Presented here is a rigid, non-driven lightweight chassis for utility vehicles that offers a significant weight advantage and includes a build-in mechanism for cost-effective wheel alignment.
