  • Patent number: 8257214
    Abstract: A drive train for a motor vehicle, which has a first and a second axle. The drive train has a first drive unit for permanently driving the first axle and an electric drive unit, which is arranged in the region of the second axle and has an electric motor. A shift clutch package contains a first shift clutch for setting up a first transmission ratio and a second shift clutch for setting up a second transmission ratio between the electric motor and an output of the electric drive unit. The electric drive unit is arranged parallel to an input shaft of a transverse differential of the second axle.

  • Publication number: 20120129614
    Abstract: Shaft arrangement having a shaft and at least one component, which is arranged on the shaft and which is to be lubricated and/or cooled by means of a fluid, a fluid feed device being designed to feed the fluid to the shaft arrangement radially from outside. The component is a shaft sealing ring, which rests on the shaft and which is fixed to a housing. A baffle plate, which with the shaft sealing ring defines a fluid baffle chamber and which is separated by an annular gap from the outer circumference of the shaft, is arranged axially next to the shaft sealing ring. The fluid feed device is arranged so that fluid is fed into the fluid baffle chamber.

  • Publication number: 20100187026
    Abstract: An electrical axle assembly for a motor vehicle comprises a first electric machine, which is rotationally fixed to a first input shaft, and a second electric machine, which is rotationally fixed to a second input shaft. The first input shaft and the second input shaft are arranged coaxially along an input axle. The axle assembly further comprises a first output shaft, which can be connected to a first driving wheel, and a second output shaft, which can be connected to a second driving wheel. The first output shaft and the second output shaft are arranged coaxially along an output axle. Further, they are connected to the associated input shaft via at least one transmission stage, in such a way that the driving wheels can be driven independently of one another by the electric machines. At least one of the shafts here has a bearing journal, which is radially supported in an axial bore of a shaft coaxial therewith.

  • Publication number: 20090211824
    Abstract: An electric axle drive unit for an axle of a vehicle has an electric machine. The drive output of electric machine can be connected to the input of a transmission device. The electric drive unit has a differential gear, the input member of which is connected to an output of the transmission device. The output members of the differential gear can be connected respectively to a left-hand and a right-hand driveshaft of the axle. At least one transmission stage of the transmission device and the differential gear are arranged on opposite sides of the electric machine in the axial direction. The differential gear is connected to the transmission stage by means of a hollow shaft.

  • Publication number: 20070234568
    Abstract: A pipe coupling method includes at least one end seal, a clamping device and forming a flared end on two adjacent pipes. An internal slot is formed on both sides of the end seal to receive the flared ends of the adjacent pipes. An inner perimeter is formed through each end seal. Closing the clamping device forces the two adjacent pipes and each end seal together. A second embodiment of a pipe coupling method includes a first end seal, a second end seal, the clamping device, a tubular insert and forming a bell flare on the ends of two adjacent pipes. The first end seal is attached to a first pipe and the second end seal to a second pipe. The tubular insert is sized to be received by the inner perimeters of the two bell flares and the inner perimeters of the first and second end seals.
