Thanks to its portfolio of components in the area of battery technology, ElringKlinger is now a recognized system partner in the e-mobility sector. It has completely automated the production of cell contact systems, one of the vital components of the lithium-ion batteries used in both hybrid and pure electric vehicles. Another key element of the battery is the cell housing. As this is where the chemical reactions take place, it must be designed with a high degree of electrolytic resistance and excellent insulating and sealing properties. Very few manufacturers are able to produce this safety-critical product cost-efficiently in large volumes and in the required quality. For ElringKlinger, it was a natural step to include this component in its portfolio, and the company has now teamed up with a cell manufacturer so that it can offer complete high-voltage battery systems for automotive applications.
ElringKlinger is in the process of developing energy storage solutions for numerous applications outside the automotive industry, too. These include stationary storage systems, forklift trucks, electrified road maintenance vehicles, commercial vehicles, mobile equipment, e-scooters, and marine applications.
