Schaeffler: Production start for e-axis in China-production

The automotive and industrial supplier Schaeffler celebrated the start of production of his “2in1” -E axes at the Chinese production site Taicang.

Schaeffler sit on the local production on site to react quickly to customer needs worldwide.

According to Schaeffler, the 2in1-e-axis integrates the reduction gear and the electric motor in a structural unit. With an excellent torque density of the transmission, this electrical axis is mainly due to compactness, high power density, high system efficiency and good acoustic behavior, so the company.

With a modular design, the system can meet different useful requirements and applied for various vehicle platforms, so Schaeffler. The first Chinese car model, which is equipped with this product, will soon be launched. After the market launch in China, the Schaeffler 2in1-E-axis will also be used in a European vehicle manufacturer.

“Schaeffler is aiming for innovation leadership in electromobility,” said Dr. Jochen SchrOder, head of the E-Mobility division at Schaeffler. “Serial production of our 2in1-e-axes has strengthened our positioning in this market.”After the establishment of a separate division in early 2018, the commitment of Schaeffler show significant successes in e-mobility, so SchrOder.

  1. Germany Germany ….
    Can not produce something in Germany? At today’s high automation, labor costs are pretty banana.
    For this purpose, projects like Tesla Grunheide in Germany are attacked up to the complete ultimate victory over the manufacturer.
    Or is this about the reason why all build in China?
    Idealogs create no jobs, do nothing!

  2. The cable design is something old baking, actually the attached inverter state of the art. But who knows, is only a symbol image.
