Abstract:
In today's automobile market, most of OEM's uses manual transmission for Cars. Gear Shifting is a crucial customer touch point. Any issue or inconvenience caused while shifting gear can result into customer dissatisfaction and will affect the brand image. Synchronizer is a vital subsystem for precise gear shifting mechanism. Based on vehicle application selection of synchronizer for given inertia and speed difference is the key factor which decides overall shift quality of gearbox. For more demanding driver abuse conditions like skip shifting, conventional brass synchronizers have proved inadequate for required speed difference and gear inertia and which eventually results into synchronizer crashing and affects driving performance. To increase synchronizer performance of multi-cone compact brass synchronizer, a grit blasting process has been added. These components are tested with Accelerated test plan successfully. This paper focuses on synchronizer crashing & it's capacity increase by enhancing synchronizer coefficient of friction due to addition of grit blasting process. Accelerated testing method & grit blasting process results are beneficial for future modern manual synchronizer transmissions.
