3M: Innovative Materials for Vehicle Electrification

Organised by 3M

With the move towards electrification, vehicles are seeing increased weight loads due to battery packs and rapid high torque loads in electric motors. Moreover, there has become more electrified design variants for a like model (i.e. both a hybrid and ICE option). This trend brings unique design and manufacturing challenges to safely withstand and transmit the high loads of an electric powertrain, while minimizing design variants and complexity.

The technology behind a friction enhancement material solution will be presented as well as ways in which it can be used to overcome these challenges in and around electric powertrain assemblies.

Are you looking to increase transmittable forces and torque, reliability or reduce component size and weight? Engineers, designers & R&D are invited to join 3M’s John Phipps for a 15 minute webinar to learn how 3M™ Friction Shims can help improve your performance in EVs.
