How A CVT Works by TEAM Industries.mov
TEAM has received a lot of requests to explain how a CVT works, here is a
good video showing the basics of CVT. In the future we will be posting more
videos explaining some of our innovations to the basic design. Take a look
and let us know what you think.

The CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission is the newest, totally
redesigned automatic transmission to see the day. Yes, this is a completely
new type of automotive transmission. In this series, we will cover its
basic and advanced operation, as well as lots of issues dealing with CVT
reliability. At this time, most vehicle manufacturers are mass producing
their own version of the CVT transmission, which within the next decade,
will completely replace regular automatic transmissions, that use old wet
The CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission is a belt driven, infinitely
variable ratio transmission. A CVT consists of an electronically controlled
and oil pressure supported variator cones. The variator cones consists of a
set of pulleys, primary or driver and secondary, or driven, and a high
strength alloy steel push-belt. The engine power is transferred, from the
primary driver pulley to the secondary driven pulley, by way of the CVT
belt. The CVT belt is the heart of the CVT, and forms the main link between
the vehicle's engine, and the wheels. By changing the ... Get the whole

Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen: Bremen plant to produce additional model of the
C Class model range as of 2011
• Development as a competence centre: Bremen plant expanding production
operations to include Coupé of the C-Class
• New variant to be produced in addition to the C-Class Saloon, the
C-Class Estate and the GLK as of 2011
• Flexible production: Coupé to be produced with three existing models
on a single line
Peter Schabert, Head of the Bremen plant: "Decision another milestone on
our way to becoming the C-Class competence centre and a clear sign of trust
in Bremen team's capabilities and standards."
Bremen - The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is gearing up for the production
of a fourth model of the high-volume C-Class model range. As of 2011, a
Coupé will be added to a flexible production line, which already produces
the three existing models. This will be a new addition to Bremen's current
production portfolio in the C-Class segment, comprising the Saloon, the
Estate and the compact GLK sport utility vehicle (SUV).
"The decision by the Board of Management to produce the Coupé version of
the current C-Class here in Bremen as well represents another important
milestone on our way to becoming Mercedes' competence centre for the
C-Class and is a clear sign of the trust in the Bremen team's capabilities
and standards," says Peter Schabert, Head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in
The Bremen plant is developed into the worldwide competence centre for the
high-volume C-Class model series. Allocating production of the new Coupé
to the plant is in keeping with this strategy. As announced in December
2009, the launch of the next generation of the C-Class at the plant as of
2014 will see production of the C-Class Saloon for markets in Europe
concentrated at a single location together with the production of the other
C-Class model variants.
The Bremen plant is already demonstrating the flexibility of its production
operations by producing three models (C-Class Saloon, C-Class Estate and
GLK) on a single assembly line. The vehicles are able to pass along the
assembly line in any conceivable order precisely as customer orders
require, irrespective of model, variant (right- or left-hand drive,
all-wheel or rear-wheel drive) and equipment. From 2011 the Bremen plant
will be integrating a fourth model into the production process in the guise
of the Coupé, demonstrating the plant's flexibility once again.
Production portfolio of the Bremen plant.
In addition to the models of the C-Class model series, vehicles belonging
to the E-Class are also produced in Bremen, with the Coupé and Cabrio
running in flexible configuration on a single production line. The
roadsters of the SL- and SLK-Class are also produced exclusively in Bremen.
With a workforce of around 12,600, the Mercedes-Benz plant is the largest
private-sector employer in the region.
ZF 8-Speed Automatic Transmission
ZF has developed a new automatic transmission for cars with eight speeds
that can achieve more than 6% fuel savings. The priority aim in
development, however, was not the maximum number of gears, but minimum
ZF engineers had set the bar high to produce a new benchmark for automatic
car transmissions. The second generation of the ZF 6HP 6-speed
transmission, that entered production only in 2006, defines standards that
are hard to top: reaction times faster than human perception, direct engine
linkage by early-stage torque converter lock-up and intelligent, adaptive
control software, that almost reads the driver's intentions from his foot.
But the new transmission is capable of even more - it saves (even more)
fuel. It also guarantees ultimate driving enjoyment, as well as the
variability needed to be able to use future technologies.
Subaru CVT in Action
From the Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS), this demos the CVT as used in the
Outback as it goes from "low" to "high" gear. Note the change in ratio
between the upper (input) and lower (output) pullies.

actual rotation of the pinion and the ring gear is opposite to what is
