There are clear trends in motor design such as the sustainable use of resources and sustainability, the reduction of Costs/total costs of the system (TCO), efficiency, less installation space and weight, higher power density, intelligent mechanical and electronical solutions. Our engineering co-creative competence leads to the implementation of these trends in motor designs.
DRIVING INNOVATION DEVELOPMENT THE SMART WAY
THE DIGITAL TWIN
During the Co-Creation of our new eDrive we’ve consistently focused on the development of a digital twin, which has enabled us to carry out simulations directly in a real-world scenario and identify weak points during the development phase - without having to create expensive prototypes.
Using the digital twin, we simulated system interactions of motor and housing in advance, as well as testing various different materials such as laminated steel and SMC.
NEW WAYS, NEW MATERIAL
"Downsizing" plays an increasingly important role in the development of electric motors.
Smaller, compact units with consistently high performance are the future of e-mobility because smaller sizes automatically mean sustainable use of materials: significantly fewer rare earths and other raw materials are required and thus resources are saved.
Whilst most R&D departments in the e-mobility sector try to develop in-house solutions with little success, we are taking a new approach:
specialists from different industries and sectors cooperate to develop innovative solutions which move the industry forward. By pooling their expertise and ideas they can create innovative and future-proof eDrive systems.
