Striving to actualize such an automobile, Aisin AW we made advancements in gear shifting mechanisms from 4-speed to 5-speed, and then 5-speed to 6-speed.
We did not simply make advances in multi-staging. While incorporating the latest control and production technologies, we also completely redesigned internal mechanisms in our products to make them lighter and more compact for mounting on a wide range of vehicles.
High Torque Capacity RWD 8-speed AT (TL-80SN)
- Provides both excellent acceleration and low fuel consumption with optimal use of engine torque
- Low noise level and excellent shift performance that satisfy luxury vehicles
- Lightweight due to the housing (converter housing and extension housing) integrated case
LS460, GS460, RC F, GS F (Lexus)
High Torque Capacity FWD 8-speed AT(AWF8G45)
- Achieved significant improvement in fuel economy and drivability by drastic reduction of loss torque and expansion of LOCK-UP range
- Downsized light-weight transmission realized by revising gear train structure, reconsidering material, and optimizing its shape
