Assembly Systems for transmissions are very large assembly lines with typical project volumes of up to 20 million euros. Highly automated customer-specific assembly lines achieve cycle times between 30 and 180 seconds. Typical is a daily production of up to 1000 gearboxes. The degree of automation of the pre-assembly and final assembly systems is high. Roller conveyors are common to concatenate the assembly stations. Typical joining process is the screwing. User industries are the automotive and automotive supply industries. Typical assemblies are shaft sets and housing components. The main line is divided into the pre-assembly of the shaft sets and the actual main assembly for introducing the shaft sets in the housing. As part of the main assembly, clutches, controls and attachments will continue to be assembled. Combustion engines run in only a narrow speed range with optimum torque value and efficiency. This range can be utilized optimally through the transmission. Furthermore, the transmission permits the attainment of a minimum torque which is required for starting. The connecting elements between the engine / input shaft and the powertrain / output shaft convert the motor speed into a higher or lower drive speed. Vehicle gearboxes are to be distinguished from distributor gears. The designs of vehicle transmissions are manual transmissions, semi-automatic transmissions, automated transmissions, automatic transmissions and infinitely variable transmissions. Continuous variable transmission (CVT) or Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT) are infinitely variable with regard to gear ratio. Double-clutch transmissions are a modern design of automated manual transmissions. They are equipped with a transmission controller and consist of two sub-gears. With this structure, a gear change is fully automatic without tractive effort interruption. Multi-disc clutches, which can be switched under load, establish the connection between the input shaft and the gear sets. The gear ratio is determined by the difference in size between the gear wheels. In reverse, the rotary movement is reversed. A distinction is made regarding distributing gearboxes: axis differential and axis distribution gearboxes. Axis distribution gearboxes distribute the engine torque on all-wheel drive vehicles on the front and rear axles. Axis differential gearboxes adjust the rotation of the individual wheels of an axle, for in bends take.
