Reducing weight isn`t just about using lighter materials - it goes way beyond that. Optimizing the parts strategy - which includes reducing a transmission’s components - can decrease weight by about 20 percent, as with the MX65 family, for example.
Even optimizing components to the requirements saves weight. Therefore GETRAG allows modular use of components within a single transmission family, thereby optimally adapting the transmission to the torque class. This avoids needless reserves due to oversized and therefore heavier gears.
