Compared with diesel or gasoline engines, electric motors pose other challenges when it comes to mounting. With this motor type, it is primarily excitation in the high-frequency range that occurs. For an optimum motor mount, we have created new concepts and developed special elastomer compounds. With our weight-reduced system solution for mounting electric motors, we are further reducing energy consumption in electric vehicles and thereby increasing their range.
At the heart of this are motor and chassis mounts that are specially designed for the requirements of electric motors. These are integrated in particularly lightweight structural components made from aluminum or fiber-reinforced high-performance polyamides. Each sub-component is designed and produced in an optimum material. All components are perfectly tailored to one another. In this way, they reduce disruptive noises and vibrations to a minimum and eliminate the vibrations that the driver can feel. As a system provider, we supply automotive manufacturers with a complete solution from a one-stop shop in this area, too.
