Global automotive constant velocity joint market: Advancements in design
CV joint manufacturers are introducing innovative design changes in CV joints to meet the stringent emission norms and regulations. GKN, one of the major manufacturers of CV joints has developed VL3 series CV joints, which debuted in BMW 7 series models in 2016. These joints helped BMW rear-wheel-drive platform to reduce more than 4kg weight.
“VL3 is an S-shape track in-house design, which changes the movement of the ball bearings. The ball is provided with a wider range movement, which helps to balance the forces in the joint by distributing torque between the bearings evenly. This supports the strength of the cage and improves refinement in joint movement,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automotive components.
