  • Publication number: 20200247229
    Abstract: A hybrid drive module (1) for a motor vehicle includes a housing (GG), a torque converter (TC), and an electric machine with a rotor (R) and a stator (S). The rotor (R) is arranged on a rotor carrier (RT), which is fixedly connected to a hub (N). The hub (N) is rotatably supported via at least one first bearing (L1) and is supported in radial and axial directions against a bearing shield (LS). The hub (N) is rotationally fixed to a converter housing (TCH) of the torque converter (TC) via a rivet joint (RI) or a screw connection. A drive train for a motor vehicle including such a hybrid drive module (1) is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20040235612
    Abstract: A continuously variable toroidal transmission comprising at least one input disc and at least one output disc has several friction wheels (10, 19′, 10″) between the inner surfaces of the input and output discs, on pivoting bodies (2, 2′, 2″) of a support element (1), retained by wheel carriers (9, 9′, 9″) and pivotally supported. The wheel carriers (9, 9′, 9″) of the friction wheels (10, 10′, 10″) are connected with the pivoting bodies (2, 2′, 2″) by one coupling element (19). The coupling element (19) has a ball guide (25) with a longitudinal hole (22) for movement in linear direction along the axis of the appertaining wheel carrier (9, 9′, 9″).
