Transformation of the drives
Which drive will move us in the future? This question is occupying the die casting industry, because the automotive industry is the most important customer for die cast products. Find exciting content on the transformation of drives here.
Which drive will move us in the future? This question is of particular concern to the die-casting industry, for which the automotive industry is the most important customer for die-cast components. The increasing trend towards electromobility, away from the combustion engine, poses new challenges for the entire industry. But it also holds a multitude of opportunities. In order to remain the technology leader and key supplier for OEMs as a producer of die-cast components, innovative ideas and investments in new die-casting technologies are required.
No matter whether
- Internal combustion engines (ICE)
- Hybrid electric vehicles (HEV)
- Electric drives (BEV, REX, PHEV, FCHEV)
represent the future of propulsion. The die-casting industry must prepare itself for a new era. This is because the change in drive technology will have an impact above all on cast die-cast parts. Here, however, the die-casting process, with its ability to realise extremely small wall thicknesses or to combine several functions in one component, offers numerous possibilities to design components more easily.
