Controlled Pendulum-slider Oil Pump for the Supply on Demand of Transmissions
The application of controlled oil pumps to reduce CO2 emissions in combustion engines is currently the state of the art. In contrast, uncontrolled pump types are still commonly used in vehicle transmissions. Mahle developed a pendulum-slider pump with special control characteristics. Now, it is possible to further reduce fuel consumption in all types of powertrains with automatic transmissions.
