Automotive Transmission Valve Body
The manufacturer/assembler of an automotive transmission valve body contacted SPIROL to evaluate their application. The valve body was designed to utilize several pins to secure the solenoids within the aluminum housing. Each solenoid required 2 pins in order to retain it to the body of the assembly. This particular application called for 7 solenoids. These solenoids are extremely costly and the overall performance of the assembly is paramount to ensure successful functioning of the automatic transmission. The total cost of this assembly was being monitored very closely. The customer was in search of a product that met all their performance requirements, as well as improved the overall assembly cost and productivity.
