GKN Driveline
Technology that automatically recognises if you require all wheel drive can significantly improve fuel economy.
GKN Driveline
A high speed flowline that automates the production of precision forgings improves safety and minimises energy consumption.
GKN Land Systems

Transmission technology

A double clutch transmission capable of transferring 1200Nm of torque is just starting to smooth the shift of an industrial diesel engine.
GKN Land Systems

The oil and gas industry’s first double clutch technology for industrial gearboxes has been developed by GKN Land Systems. A synchroniser multi-plate design is used as this is significantly stronger than traditional approaches and leads to increased product life. Transferring up to 2 megawatts of power, it is the first of its kind.
