The eDrive stands for extra performance, because the soft magnetic composite (SMC, Höganäs Somaloy®) and the special properties of the material used allow it to operate at significantly higher frequencies and speeds. And by combining two types of motor, the system can be optimized for continuous performance, without sacrificing peak performance.
The two-motor concept of the eDrive is made possible, first and foremost, by the significantly freer design resulting from the new material. The use of powder means you are no longer limited to the two-dimensionality of a sheet metal punch and can go ahead and create three-dimensional designs. Components can be nested inside each other, which reduces the installation space.
At the same time, the alternative production method of eDrive increases cost efficiency.
And: the production time is noticeably shorter thanks to SMC technology, which means that the growing demand for solutions for the automotive sector can be operated faster and, above all, more safely.
"If you want to implement new ideas, you have to go new ways. Future technology can only be realized with co-working concepts. And the future has already begun with us."
