By means of precise laser-based paint removal, it is not only possible to spot-de-coat battery housings made of aluminum or galvanized sheet steel, but also to remove paint from enamelled copper wire residue-free. The blank copper wires are thus optimally prepared for the further soldering or welding process in the stator production of the electric…Continue reading
F-Boost: 200kW electro-mechanical flywheel module (>4kW/kg) for high performance car segment A new generation of modular electro-mechanical flywheel energy storage systems are being developed for integration into different vehicle types and powertrain architectures. The ultra-high-power density of the flywheel provides an effective hybrid solution for conventional ICE powered vehicles and is equally suited to hybridise…Continue reading

Matthew Vanderlip, iDM Solutions Architect & Manager, System Strategy & Platform Engineerings, BorgWarner Efficient system integration for the EV market With an ever-growing trend towards electric propulsion there is also an increasing demand for flexible electrification components that meet the requirements of different vehicle architectures. By permanently enhancing the portfolio through development of innovative technologies…Continue reading
The drive toward electrification is impacting every single area of drivetrain development, and lubrication is no exception. In the case of TotalEnergies, the company has been developing a range of dedicated EV fluids, under the brand Quartz EV-Drive MP, able to act as both a transmission lubricant and motor coolant. Hakim El Bahi, a research…Continue reading
Watch Hildegard Müller´s, President, Verband der Automobilindustrie e.V. (VDA) video with her statement on the climate-neutral mobility of the future.
Image caption: Standardization of test benches for e-drives at top quality teamtechnik Group in Freiberg/Germany has thoroughly standardized its system platform for end-of-line test benches. This results in a reduction in development and delivery times and also in the costs for the test benches. At the same time, their quality of testing sets new standards.…Continue reading
Gary L. Horvat, Vice President – eMobility, Navistar, Inc., USA
Plenary Speaker at CTI SYMPOSIUM USA on 9 September 2021, 09:10 AM EDT
Watch Gary Horvat´s pre-video for CTI USA now. Gary will be discussing “Breakthroughs needed for viable electrification of commercial application” at the symposium 2021.
After the merger Navistar is part of the TRATON. Together they want to meet the challenges of new regulations and rapidly evolving technologies in connectivity, powertrain and autonomous driving for our customers worldwide even better and quicker. The group is going to invest almost two billion dollars in electrification by 2025 – part of it could help Navistar to push BE and FC/H2 programs.Continue reading
