FTE automotive wins PACE AWARD 2015

“Hydraulic gear shift actuator module” was honored in Detroit

Introduced by Audi in 2014 with the new S-Tronic transmission, FTE's Gear Shift Actuator Module ("GSAM") is an industry first polymer body double action actuator package that delivers dramatic weight and cost reductions versus previous best in class actuator assemblies. FTE also brought their elastomer and applications engineering expertise to bear to solve a complex sealing requirement and incorporate new sensor functionalities. The Automotive News PACE Award judges were impressed by the FTE GSAM's ability to reduce cost AND reduce weight AND increase performance AND provide increased functionality over the previous state-of-the-art.
