The modern transmission is now a very sophisticated piece of kit with intelligent control units, predictive and self-learning programming, multiple gears (8 to 9 speed are becoming common, with 10-speed transmissions now making an appearance), faster shift speeds, and superior noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH).
Some of the advanced transmission configurations need a higher degree of heat management, in which case, an internal transmission oil cooler (TOC) is insufficient. These transmissions are often equipped with a heat exchanger known as the external TOC.
Maintaining the transmission fluid’s temperature, especially that of the automatic transmission fluid (ATF), plays a critical role in the transmission’s optimum operation and longevity.
This report provides an understanding of the TOC technology and market trends for light vehicles, an in-depth outlook of global and regional demand patterns, and an overview of the main players and market drivers at global and regional levels.
