Oerlikon Graziano, part of Oerlikon’s Drive System Segment, has developed a new electric transmission, the 4SED (4 Speed Electric Drive).

A 4SED has been fitted to a Mercedes Vito minibus and will be on show at Cenex LCV 2014, from 10-11 September.

“We have been at the forefront of automotive transmission technology, since developing and supplying our first complete gearbox in 1996 and of the electric market, with the production of the first electric axle for the golf cart market,” said Oerlikon Graziano’s Head of Performance Automotive, Paolo Mantelli.

“Together with our controlled company VOCIS Ltd, contributing control software, a variety of business opportunities and potential supplier-partners connections are opened.

” We intend to be a key partner developer/manufacturer of Zero Emissions Driveline Systems for all the OEMs playing in this increasingly relevant automotive sector.”
