KS Kolbenschmidt

Kolbenschmidt has been manufacturing high-quality system components for vehicles of all kinds for many decades. Today, we are on the way with you to tomorrow’s climate-friendly mobility as a leading development partner and service-oriented solutions provider – worldwide. The focus of our four Business Units is firmly set on the key challenges facing the automotive industry: reducing emissions and lowering fuel consumption by efficient lightweight construction and the minimization of friction.
 

FRICTION POWER REDUCTION

TRIBOLOGICALLY OPTIMIZED

Lower Energy Losses – Higher Efficiency

FRICTION POWER REDUCTION

TRIBOLOGICALLY OPTIMIZED

Lower Energy Losses – Higher Efficiency

Our friction optimized components ensure the reduction of energy losses in a broad spectrum of vehicles and systems – ranging from passenger cars to heavy commercial vehicles and even wind turbines. For example, with weight-optimized and coated pistons or specific, polymer-coated bearings in the power train. With a clear environmental benefit: lower friction power means higher efficiency – and that means greater fuel economy, reduced emissions, and a smaller carbon footprint.

LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION

WEIGHT OPTIMIZATION

For conventional and new vehicle concepts

Our lightweight components reduce the burden on the environment in more than one sense. For instance, they help to compensate for the weight of the battery and increase the range of new energy vehicles. They are also used in combustion engines, where lower weight is synonymous with lower fuel consumption and the reduction of CO2 emissions. You can choose from a broad spectrum of solutions with weight-optimized components: these range from structural components, engine blocks and transmission parts to e-mobility components.
