Electric Wheel End

Overview
Electric Wheel End

AxleTech is offering a new planetary wheel end specifically designed for electric drivetrain systems to produce extremely low noise, while delivering high strength, high efficiency, and long product life. It is available as an independent module or as part of the range of AxleTech’s electric axles, which incorporate many motor configurations. This wheel end is a compelling solution for the ever-increasing electrification of on-highway and off-highway vehicles.

Features and Benefits

Helical planetary gears
Operate silently and increase strength. Significantly reduce noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) and boost strength by 38%, when compared to spur gears of the same tooth size and width.

Robust design
Thrives in the harsh duty cycles of electric drivelines with regenerative braking while achieving a design life of 750K miles without major rebuilds.

Multiple planetary ratios
Satisfy a range of torque requirements.

Various brake options
Match a large number of OEM specifications.

ABS
Improves vehicle on-road control and decreases on-road stopping distance.
