  1. GM Invests In Michigan Transmissions Plant

    YPSILANTI, MI - MAY 30: Kevin Larsen of Brownstown, Michigan, works on new transmissions in the Button Up section of the General Motors Powertrain Ypsilanti Transmission Operations facility May 30, 2006 in Ypsilanti, Michigan. GM will invest $125 million in the facility for additional capacity to produce a family of Hydra-Matic six-speed rear and all-wheel drive automatic transmissions, and will invest an additional $45 million for vendor tooling, containers, and other locations necessary to support the expanded Ypsilanti operations.

  4. 1939 Dodge

    After 1934 Dodge cars were equipped with overdrive transmissions and independent front suspensions among other features. An automatic clutch could also be ordered by drivers who wanted greater ease in shifting gears.

    An active internal gearbox structure is developed and evaluated experimentally to suppress gear pair vibration due to transmission error excitation. The approach is based on an active shaft transverse vibration control concept that was theoretically analyzed in an earlier study and determined . . . to reduce gear vibration and noise and thereby improve transmission quality. The prediction of gear... that the acoustic noise generated by a pair of gears is strongly related to the gears transmission error

    automatic transmissions is proposed. The formulation is capable of analyzing any typical one-degree-of-freedom automatic transmission gear train containing any number of simple, compound or complex... torque values. A five-speed transmission example is considered to highlight the capabilities . . . Effect of flexibility of an internal gear on the quasi-static behavior of a planetary gear set is investigated. A state-of-the-art finite elements/semi-analytical nonlinear contact mechanics formulation is employed to model a typical automotive automatic transmission planetary unit
