EV axle collaboration with no uncommon metals | Automotive Trade Information
SAF-Holland and British motor producer AEM (Superior Electrical Machines) are collaborating on the suspension specialist’s electrical axle system.
AEM is supplying an electrical motor for the SAF Trakr regenerative braking axle which doesn’t require any uncommon earth or copper.
The 2 corporations mentioned every tonne of extracted uncommon earth materials produces excessive quantities of poisonous and corrosive waste gases and acidic waste water.
Utilizing patented expertise, AEM’s motor is freed from uncommon earth parts, such because the chemical parts neodymium and dysprosium. The corporate can be making an attempt to interchange copper windings with aluminium to enhance recyclability. No copper makes the motor lighter with out decreasing total effectivity.
The electrical motor within the electrical axle makes use of recuperation which converts the car’s kinetic power into electrical power. That is saved in a lithium-ion battery after which used for auxiliary models within the trailer, resembling pumps or cooling programs. Recuperation as an extra supply of energy technology saves gasoline, whereas decreasing noise and exhaust emissions.
AEM specialises in sustainable electrical motors for automotive and transport whereas SAF-Holland makes chassis programs and elements for trailers, vehicles and buses plus fifth wheels, kingpins and touchdown gear.
