Southfield, MI – The 2023 SAE International WCX World Congress Experience has a goal of united engineering communities in order to address worldwide mobility challenges and opportunities with the newest technology and services. This event, being led by transportation leaders, suppliers, and subject matter experts, and attended by transportation leaders, suppliers, and subject matter experts, makes that an achievable goal.
Amsted Automotive Group, a leader in drivetrain solutions for electric vehicle mobility, will present its Novel Multi-Functional Clutch Technology for EV Disconnects at the event, which will be held April 17-20, 2023, at Huntington Place in Detroit.
Amsted Automotive’s John Jennings, Director of Innovation and eMobility, will discuss the company’s Novel Multi-Functional Clutch Technology on April 19 at 10:30 a.m. EST in the event’s Learning Lab. This technology is currently in volume production electric pickups. The key to having a successful transition from internal-combustion engines to electrified drivetrains is with an efficient electric all-wheel-drive system. The Dynamic Controllable Clutch (DCC), an Electro-Mechanical E-axle Disconnect System, engages and disengages the drive axles, while also conserving energy and maintaining on-road and off-road capabilities, increasing an EV’s range by 10 percent.
