Entwicklung und Industrialisierung der neuen Hinterachse für VW Caddy 4motion

InhaltsangabeThis paper describes the development and industrialization of the driven rear axle for the new VW Caddy 4motion. For this application, highest attention has been paid on integrating verified components and technology from the high volume passenger car production, of course considering the differences between the beam axle here and the independent suspensions in passenger cars. The axle as a component has been developed by Engineering Center Steyr (ECS), Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles (VW) uses it in the Caddy 4motion as driven rear axle. By taking advantage of the carry over parts concept mentioned above and by a very close cooperation between the two companies, it was possible to develop and industrialize the axle, as well as the Caddy 4motion based on the normal Caddy, within 15 months.
