Automobile engine variator with the highest performance factor among other known variators was presented at the stand of KFU Engineering Institute at the 13th International specialized exhibition Mechanical engineering. Metalwork.
Among high-tech development units demonstrated by Naberezhnye Chelny branch of the University, systems of automatic transmissions take the main place. Which is not surprising, according to the head of the problematic laboratory Vladimir Voloshko, since the introduction of these systems is one of the perspective directions in the increase of consumer properties of vehicles.
The efficiency of the geared variator is much higher than that of conventional mechanical boxes and variable transmissions used elsewhere in the world practice, moreover, the simplicity of design allows to avoid the laborious workmanship and high material costs during the production.
Lab researchers intend to continue the work on hybrid and hydro-hybrid transmissions. Director of Naberezhnye Chelny branch of the University, Mahmut Ganiev, stressed – “We are constantly improving the existing technologies and are moving in line with modern trends in the industry”.
