Electric oil pump: a strategic component for e-motors and electrified powertrains
The electrification of the powertrain is one of the driving forces in the automotive market, motivated by the push towards fuel efficiency improvement and emission reductions. Within this context, a prime role is played by the electrification of auxiliary assemblies since they can run independently of the I.C. engine, thus shrinking power intake and consumption. Of growing popularity within these developments are the multi-talented electrically driven oil pumps. They can be employed as auxiliary for the I.C. engine as well as for different purposes within the powertrain including with today's electric motors.

New polymer-coated thrust washer KS R 535L1
Among the key technologies in the transition phase to electromobility are the gradual hybridization of the powertrain and the minimization of internal engine losses through the use of low-viscosity oils. Both also have an effect on the requirements placed on the radial and axial bearings within the engine. As an axial bearing solution, KS Gleitlager GmbH now offers its customers the new polymer-coated thrust washer KS R535L1 with high resistance to wear caused by start/stop modes of operation and excellent mixed friction stability.

Grafic:  Coolant Pump for Fuel Cell
Rheinmetall Automotive
Efficient high-voltage components for fuel-cell applications
Fuel-cell systems are a challenging technology that, much like combustion engines, requires sophisticated thermal management and supplies of air and hydrogen. Pierburg GmbH, a subsidiary of Rheinmetall Automotive AG, is applying its accumulated combustion engine expertise in pumps and valves to offer special products for fuel-cell vehicles. In addition to a leak-free control valve that is suitable for the specific requirements of fuel cells, two other products have been developed and occupy a special position in the market to date: a coolant pump and a hydrogen recirculation blower. Both are suitable for both low-voltage and high-voltage vehicle electrical systems with 400 and 800 volts.

Grafic eCC
Pierburg
Air conditioning components specifically for electric vehicles
In vehicles with a conventional internal combustion engine, the a/c compressor is usually driven via a pulley and the V-belt but in electric vehicles, this mechanism is not available. Here, the a/c compressor is driven by an electric motor that is integrated into the vehicle's high-voltage network. Pierburg GmbH has therefore developed an a/c compressor (eCC) that incorporates the supplier's many years of experience in the field of mechatronic components.
