Whether it’s a transmission crossbeam or a strut mount: glass fiber-reinforced polyamide makes components lighter.
The latest computer simulation techniques and production processes developed in-house help the developers at Continental to make load-bearing components for mounting engines and in the chassis lighter. The product solutions made from glass fiber-reinforced polyamide include heavy-duty engine mounts as well as structural components such as transmission crossbeams that support forces and torques from the motorized gear unit. The portfolio encompasses more than 30 different designs. More than a million of these are already in use worldwide.
