Schaeffler presents electric motors ready for volume production

Schaeffler is entering the electric motor manufacturing sector with a modular, highly integrated technology platform. This family of electric motors is designed for efficiency and a good price/performance ratio, and potential applications range from hybrid modules and dedicated hybrid transmissions (DHTs) through to electric motors for electric axle drives. Voltage ranges from 48V to 800V and performance classes from 15kW to over 300kW are possible. Volume production for a range of customer projects worldwide is set to begin in 2021.

Schaeffler’s worldwide network of manufacturing plants and special machinery and tool manufacturing facilities will be used to set up and operate the production lines. Schaeffler will be publicly presenting the electric motors – which were developed in-house and are ready for volume production – as complete systems for the first time at the IAA.

Since the last remaining technology gap, stator manufacture, was closed by the acquisition of Elmotec Statomat at the end of 2018, the company can now fully cover the industrialisation of electric motors. Comprehensive expertise in mechanical components, manufacturing processes and winding technologies, as well as an in-depth understanding of all vehicle systems, guarantee short development times and ensure smooth processes in the production of technologically sophisticated electric motors.

“Understanding and mastering transmissions, electric motors, and power electronics is an art in itself,” explains Dr. Jochen Schröder, Head of Schaeffler’s E-Mobility business division. “Making a functioning overall system and powertrain out of all these things is another. We are experts in both.”
