Southfield, MI – The automotive industry’s transition to zero-emissions mobility is taking place at an accelerated pace, making innovative propulsion technologies extremely high in demand. Amsted Automotive, a leader in drivetrain solutions, is uniquely qualified to address successful transition from internal-combustion-engine vehicles to electric vehicles. Its revolutionary Dynamic Controllable Clutch (DCC), an Electro-Mechanical E-axle Disconnect system for EVs, will be featured at the 21st CTI Symposium Germany in Berlin, December 6-7, 2022.
Amsted Automotive will be in booth A6, where it will offer demonstrations of this cutting-edge technology that makes an EV drivetrain more efficient and versatile, including seamless AWD and 4WD disconnect and quick, reliable shifts.
Additionally, John Jennings, the Director of Innovation and eMobility for Amsted Automotive, will be at the CTI event to present on the patented DCC, which allows the driveline system to engage and disengage the drive axles, to conserve energy and maintaining on-road and offroad capabilities. Electric pickups currently in production utilize Amsted Automotive’s DCC technology, which can extend an EV’s range by 10%, depending on the application. A presentation on this novel multi-functional clutch technology can be downloaded at AmstedAuto.com.
Amsted Automotive will also have many of its advanced metal-forming products on display and have experts available for technical discussions with booth guests.
