High Precision Metal Forming & Cutting ProductsMADE BY MAGNA
Magna offers modular design, development, testing and production of complete clutch modules. For multi-plate clutch assembly, development and test facilities are already in place at several Magna locations. To support all clutch assembly components, various forming technologies and machining of ferrous and aluminum die casting abilities are also in place.
Our transmission clutch and carrier components, including complete modules, are manufactured using some of the most advanced metal forming processes ever used in production. Via patended methods, we can even join aluminium to steel.
Magna designs, develops, tests and manufactures a wide variety of geared and shaft products for transfer cases, continuously variable (CVT) and automatic transmissions. Our laser welding expertise allows us to join high carbon steels to different materials, including aluminum. This capability, along with rotary-forged hollow shafts, provide for mass and weight savings.
Wet and dry clutch hubs and housings are made by stamping, flow forming or Ernst Grob spline forming. We are able to provide various solutions that are optimized based on geometry or volume requirements. Our latest innovations allow forming of complex parts with high strength and lightweight dis-similar materials for significant weight savings. We offer very short cycle time for high volume programs and our processes include oil vent slots, holes, snap ring grooves, coining and fine-blanking. Our housings carry very high torque loads with precise internal spline features with minimal wasted material compared to machined castings or forgings.
Magna’s electric motor expertise includes both precision-stamped and flow-formed housings, optimally designed for hybrid transmissions. With our engineering expertise and full assembly capabilities, we can guide you to the best solution.
