Automotive

The automotive industry invests in research and development more than all other industries. The further development of classic drives and alternative fuels, the expansion of electromobility and the digital revolution in cars—from autonomous driving to connectivity—are the driving themes of the future.

Whether for combustion engines or electric vehicles, Framo Morat not only produces gear components of all kinds for main drives and convenience drives, but also develops complete drive units—sometimes jointly with our affiliate F. Morat,  an experienced specialist in plastic injection molding technology.

The symbiosis of metal and plastic enables a combination of the strengths of the two material groups. Newly developed plastics are fulfilling ever higher requirements for strength, temperature resistance, toughness and weight reduction—a criterion that has a positive effect on energy efficiency. Both companies are qualified in accordance with ISO/TS 16949.

Applications

Pump Gear Wheels

These geared parts are fabricated for oil pumps in the main aggregate of a german automobile manufacturer.

Comfort-Drives

Comfort drives

FMO_PF_Getriebegehäuse_01Our molded plastic technical parts are used for various types of comfort drives. They are primarily used for seat adjustment or power window actuators, among other applications.

Drive Shaft for Industrial Trucks

Shafts for forklift motors require high-quality materials and the greatest precision to withstand extreme load conditions.

Caravan Mover

Truma

The Truma Mover XT is considered the most powerful and fastest drive in the branch. It is robust, corrosion-resistant and reliable. To maneuver the caravan, in the first phase, the tilting unit positions the Caravan Mover XT and pivots the drive roller against the tire. As soon as the roller exerts its whole pressure of about 6,000 N on the tire, the main motor starts actuating it through a three-stage spur gear, thus driving the wheel of the caravan. The challenge was to design a reduction gear able to supply the required torques while fitting in the tight mounting space available.

Combustion Air Control

Combustion air control
