The electric drive unit is the heart of e-mobility. Strategic partners ElringKlinger and hofer powertrain jointly develop and produce highly efficient electric drive units (EDUs). Customized solutions are implemented under the hofer powertrain products brand: high-volume or smale-scale production, complete system or integration of individual modules, standard system or individual configuration. In addition to e-motors, gearboxes, and power electronics, this also includes control software, thermal management, and safety concepts.
Whether coaxial, axially parallel, with or without disconnection clutch, our EDUs can be individually configured and are also ideally suited as a standard solution for many requirements. Our customers benefit from the combined expertise of ElringKlinger and hofer powertrain when it comes to the development and global volume production of alternative drive technology. Taking a holistic view of the entire powertrain allows costs, quality and efficiency to be optimized.
We realize optimum end-to-end solutions with our customers that meet their specific requirements. Drawing on our expertise in battery technology, processes, and manufacturing methods, together with the engineering capabilities of hofer powertrain, we are committed to achieving specified targets quickly and efficiently. By taking an all-embracing approach to the entire energy conversion chain in the vehicle, we are able to exploit the full potential of such projects in respect of cost, quality, and system behavior.
Alongside customized high-end solutions, we also offer end-to-end solutions based on standardized modules. At the same time, the concepts we offer can incorporate customer-developed components. For example, we integrate parts produced by our customers directly or by their suppliers – creating a complete, fit-for-purpose drive unit. Modular and flexible.
A wide range of ElringKlinger components relating to e-motors, transmissions and inverters can be used in an electric drive unit (EDU). These include function-integrated housing covers, housing seals, rotary shaft seals, disc carriers and rotor/stator laminated stacks.
