Efficient Torque Management Systems.

Amsted Automotive is a global solutions provider of electro-mechanical torque management systems and clutch technologies.

“One of the limitations of a typical disconnect system is you have to synchronize speed between the motor and the wheels. With our technology, you have power on-demand at any time.” - Jeff Prout, VP of Product Technology

Key Solutions

For the Future of EV

Disconnect Systems

AAG’s Disconnect Systems offer the flexibility of connecting and disconnecting the clutch at specific rotational speeds, which enables a range of operational capabilities with full rotational functionality. Our e-axle and drivetrain disconnects improve the efficiency and performance of electric 4WD and AWD vehicles. Depending on the usage, our Disconnect Systems can enhance the range efficiency by up to 10% while providing additional performance characteristics, including individual controls.
