The Bihler servo technology in electromobility

The automotive industry is changing rapidly and electromobility is in the fast lane. Automobile manufacturers and suppliers are looking for solutions with which they can produce components for electric vehicles economically using automated industrial processes. Otto Bihler Maschinenfabrik has been offering modular platforms and technologies for the production of e-components for central components in the drive, battery and power supply to the market for many years.
These include automated solutions for battery cell and module connectors completely mounted in carrier frames, ZSB circuits in hybrid motors, shielding sleeves for charging plugs, conductor rails and bus bars for power distribution and hairpins, connection pins and I-pins for stators. Hairpin technology in particular enables the type-flexible mass production of drive motors for electric vehicles in cycle times similar to those of a combustion engine. The use of hairpin-shaped coil segments and a high degree of automation makes it possible to manufacture high-quality stators.
