Schaeffler Debuting Timing Kits, Torque Converters

Nov. 1, 2021

The Automotive Aftermarket division of global automotive and industrial supplier Schaeffler Group USA Inc. announced that it will launch a full line of automotive engine timing kits as well as replacement torque converters at this year's Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.

Schaeffler expanded its lineup of automotive engine timing kits and components for customers in the U.S. and Canada. As a result of this initiative, the company said Schaeffler’s engine timing product portfolio now covers more than 95% of all U.S., Asian and European vehicles currently on the road in Canada and the United States.

“As the only original equipment supplier of automotive engine timing kits and components to offer a full coverage program to the aftermarket in the U.S. and Canada, our customers know that when you want OE quality, you want Schaeffler,” says Mike Cargill, category manager, Product Management Automotive Aftermarket Americas North, Schaeffler.

Available in chain drive and belt drive versions, Schaeffler said its INA Engine KITs for automotive timing drive systems contain all the components needed for a complete, quick and easy repair: chains/belts, tensioners, gears and gearsets, guide rails, fasteners and VCT components.

Engineered by the original equipment designer and manufacturer of more than 30 million torque converters, Schaeffler debuted LuK TorCon, which is not a rebuilt converter.

Schaeffler said it will have its P2 Hybrid Module for rear-wheel-drive transmissions at AAPEX 2021. A recent winner of the 2021 Automotive News PACE Award, Schaeffler’s hybrid module houses an electric motor and disconnect clutch that is mounted between an engine and transmission. By integrating the electric motor with the torque converter, Schaeffler’s P2 Hybrid Module is so compact that it can fit a variety of vehicle platforms.
