The development and production of components for electric drives is also part of the thyssenkrupp product portfolio. The primary focus here is on the development of rotor shafts and gear shafts for electrified drive systems and axles. These components are characterized by alternative production processes, materials and innovative component and functional integrations, depending on vehicle requirements.
The benefits here include, among others, the possibility to scale machine power with the length of the rotor or tube. Further optimization potential is offered by the following, among others: Complete rotors with joined sheet metal stacks, the integration of the engine’s own functions into the rotor cavity (e.g. rotor cooling, sensor technology), and designing gear shafts in purely electrical drive trains.
