One-piece, force-locking compensating coupling (plastic)

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

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

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

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.
