A lot has happened within gearshift cables since Triscan in 2012 introduced them in the product range. At that time, we started out with the introduction of a little more than 100 cables - primarily for European cars - and since then the programme has grown to 162 references.
The use of gear shift cables has gone up as the distance between the gearbox and the gear lever has increased over time. The increase of vans with panel gear shift, cars with transverse engine and the very popular MPV- and SUV car types have in particular contributed to that. Productionwise a solution with a gearshift cable is cheaper than the solutions with tensile / compression bars and joints, and technically it is a more accurate and reliable solution.
Gearshift cables are also used in connection with automatic transmission, and Triscan’s programme counts 21 references. As the shifting mechanism in more and more automatic transmissions becomes electric, we do not expect any special development within this part of the programme.
Gear shift cable – manual: now 162 references in the programme
Gear shift cable – automatic: 21 references in the programme
