Mahle reveals E-motor & thermal management kit
At IAA MOBILITY, automotive supplier Mahle will present a new technology kit that combines the advantages of its high-efficiency SCT (Superior Continuous Torque) and MCT (Mahle Contactless Transmitter) e-motors: sustained high performance, contactless power transmission, no need for rare earths, and high efficiency.
Automotive supplier Mahle announces "perfect motor"
Two years ago, Mahle introduced the MCT, a magnet-free electric motor that does not require rare earths. A year later, the automotive supplier presented the SCT, the most durable electric motor to date, capable of operating at high power for an unlimited period of time. At the "Tech Day" in Stuttgart, the Swabian company described the new technology kit, which combines both technologies, as the "perfect engine".
The company, which has so far concentrated on the sale of individual components, is thus increasingly focusing on system integration in the field of electromobility. At IAA MOBILITY, Mahle will present a new thermal management module. This module reduces installation space, development effort, and costs, and is expected to make the overall system of electric motors significantly more efficient, which should result in a 20 percent increase in range.
Mahle focuses on electric mobility
Mahle, which originally became popular as a supplier of internal combustion engines, is in the process of transforming itself in the direction of electric mobility. For example, the company is increasingly applying its thermodynamic know-how to electric mobility, particularly in the area of drive and battery cooling, which is crucial for fast charging.
In addition to developing vehicle components, Mahle is also conducting research on charging infrastructure. In addition to wired solutions for long-term parking, the company is focusing on wireless charging for electric vehicles. In cooperation with Siemens, Mahle is developing a complete system, which is supposed to consist of infrastructure and vehicle technology.
