  • Publication number: 20220281182
    Abstract: A fiber composite component has two inner elements arranged at a distance from one another, around which inner elements a fiber-reinforced plastics band is wrapped. In order to simplify the production of the fiber composite component, a first fiber-reinforced plastics band is wrapped around a first inner element, and a second fiber-reinforced plastics band is wrapped around a second inner element. The first and the second fiber-reinforced plastics band are wrapped alternately around the first and the second inner element in such a manner that the distance between the inner elements is bridged by the first and the second fiber-reinforced plastics band.

  • Patent number: 10618365
    Abstract: A vehicle axle arrangement of a vehicle wheel suspension system which has a spring arrangement which runs in the vehicle transverse direction in the installed position, steers wheels, and has bearings at the ends which are directed toward the wheels. The bearings are connected via respective bearing arrangements to transverse links which are in turn connected to wheel supports. The transverse links are coupled to a vehicle body. The spring arrangement have two leaf springs of identical configuration which are connected to one another via a coupling member.

  • Patent number: 10533619
    Abstract: A brake disk includes a friction ring, a brake disk hat and a securing ring. The friction ring has an inner side, on which a plurality of projections and intermediate spaces for connecting the friction ring to the brake disk hat are disposed. The brake disk hat has, on its outer side, intermediate spaces and projections which correspond with the projections and intermediate spaces of the friction ring and are shaped to engage in a positively locking manner into the projections and intermediate spaces of the friction ring, with the result that the friction ring is connected fixedly to the brake disk hat so as to rotate therewith. The securing ring secures the friction ring on the brake disk hat in the axial direction. The securing ring includes a number of spring elements which are spaced apart from one another in the circumferential direction of the securing ring.

  • Patent number: 10527116
    Abstract: A brake disc having a friction ring and a hub produced as a separate element and arranged inside the friction ring according. Recesses are configured in the friction ring on the inside to connect the hub to the friction ring and corresponding projections are formed on the hub, which projections engage in the recesses of the friction ring in order to be able to transfer torque from the friction ring to the hub. The recesses have an undercut at least partially in a radial direction, as viewed looking inward from the outside. The disc is simple and cost-effective to manufacture and has an acoustically advantageous operating performance, in particular in the case of thermal expansion.

  • Publication number: 20200001926
    Abstract: A bearing plate for a chassis bearing of a vehicle, having a main body with a bearing section for making full-area contact with a complementary bearing face of a component to be mounted, and having a receiving section for being received in a force-transmitting manner on a complementary receiving section of a chassis component. The bearing section is connected to the receiving section via at least two spring sections which have a spring structure or a sprung relative movability in the radial direction and a stabilization in the axial direction.

  • Publication number: 20180370313
    Abstract: A transverse leaf spring arrangement of a chassis axle of a motor vehicle having a transverse leaf spring which is mounted via two outer bearing members on, in each case, one wheel support and via two central bearing members on a vehicle body. The central bearing members, in each case, have an actuator device, which actuator devices act on a bearing shell of the respective central bearing member in such a way that a bearing point can be adjusted in the direction of the vertical axis and/or transverse axis of the motor vehicle. The actuator device is configured in such a way that, in the case of a stationary bearing shell, an adjustment of the bearing point is possible in the direction of the vertical axis and/or transverse axis of the motor vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20180370315
    Abstract: A transverse leaf spring arrangement of a chassis axle of a motor vehicle having a transverse leaf spring which is mounted via two outer bearing members on, in each case, one wheel support and via two central bearing members on a vehicle body. The central bearing members have, in each case, one torque generation apparatus, the torque directions of which run parallel to a longitudinal axis of the motor vehicle. The torque generation apparatus capable of generating a torque which is variable at least in a manner which is dependent on a deflection at the outer bearing members.

  • Publication number: 20150258864
    Abstract: The wheel for a motor vehicle is composed essentially of a fiber composite material, wherein the spokes of the wheel are each formed with a longitudinally extending cavity and said cavity is fluidically connected to a rim well or to a tire-rim space formed by the rim well and a mounted tire via an air passage opening, with the result that both monitoring of the hollow spokes for damage and in the case of tire damage is possible by a tire pressure monitoring device arranged in the wheel.
