Electric Motor Production Begins At Audi Hungaria

Electric Motor Production Begins At Audi Hungaria

Audi Hungaria not long ago started producing electrical motors in Gyor employing modular assembly with about 100 staff in an 8,500 square meter workspace. The to start with electric motors from Audi Hungaria will be utilized in the Audi e-tron. Peter Sarvari, Project chief of E-motor creation AUDI HUNGARIA Zrt, answered some issues about the production for CleanTechnica.

The latest creation ability is for somewhere around 400 electric axle motors each and every working day and can be gradually amplified. What will it be greater to?

Right after the start of collection generation it will be about 400 pieces a working day. Manufacturing is adaptable and ready to meet improved shopper demand as required in the foreseeable future. As for the potential an actual prognosis is not probable now, but it is risk-free to say that various thousand e-engines will be generated in Győr in 2018.

Are all the electric powered motors for the Audi e-tron?

Indeed. All the e-engines built in this article are constructed into the initial absolutely electric automobile of Audi, the Audi e-tron in Brussels.

Will gas-run engines however be created there at the very same time the electric powered kinds are?

Absolutely. As one of the largest motor maker[s] in the globe, Audi Hungaria has a large portfolio of engines and 9,000 units are developed everyday. We are continuously developing inner combustion engines and have just commenced the sequence creation of a new four-cylinder diesel engine. Aside from classic inner combustion engines, we also make CNG and electric engines.

Audi Hungaria made 1,965,165 engines last year, is it doable a single working day they will all be electric powered?

We are really sure that our interior combustion engines with strategies aimed at lowering carbon dioxide emission are here to remain for the upcoming decades and will be nonetheless taking part in a significant role in the vehicle business. At the exact time we are prepared for the propagation of e-mobility with the begin of e-engines manufacturing at our corporation. We are completely ready for the long run.

Electrical motors have much less areas than gasoline-driven ones, so are they simpler and more rapidly to create?

Certainly, e-motors incorporate much less parts than an inner combustion engine. In the Audi e-tron, there are two electric engines due to the quattro push procedure. A main part of the electric motor is the stator. This aspect generates the rotating magnetic area that initially sets the rotor in movement. For the stator generation, Audi Hungaria has massively designed up its own abilities. From copper wires and winding machines to lacing and tub impregnation, we have experienced to study it all from scratch. Our Style Staff for electric powered motors in Győr provides specific guidance in environmental tests, acoustic optimization and the planning of sub-elements, for illustration. Audi is committed to mastering all levels of electric powered motor creation and to optimizing these processes for meeting the certain expectations of its clients.

How prolonged does it choose to set up an electric motor production line?

To get ready series creation, the technological center for creation of the e-motor has been established in 2014. The goal was to trial some levels and procedures of collection generation and to create up the important know-how for the colleagues. This technological center was the cradle of collection creation. Electric motor design, production organizing, and the engine pre-series heart in Győr have been doing work hand in hand considering that working day a single. This guarantees development – and a technically best manufacture of the electric axle. An already existing, 8,500 square meter corridor was transformed for series creation. Not only the item, the creation approach is also new. The electrical axle assembly no extended takes place on a conveyor-sort assembly line. In its location will come the new design of creation stages in the factory of the upcoming: modular creation. In instances of mass customization it is a to start with phase on the road to satisfy the needs of our buyers in the long run. Creation techniques and robots as well as bolting and measuring stations are located at their fixed positions, but are not coupled to a single yet another by conveyors. As a substitute, the staff members produce the drives in a whole new way in so-referred to as independent modules. For the transport between these modules we’re making use of automatic guided vehicles. Irrespective of a predefined get of assembly, this modular arrangement enables a lot more branching of the paths in between the various levels and affords more leeway. Unique stations can thus be accessed many situations, although other individuals are circumvented if their do the job strategies for the unique merchandise are not essential.

How extended does it consider to prepare gas engine assembly staff to make electric motors?

We continually coach our colleagues in buy to put together them for series generation. We’re aiming at this with our entirely built-in schooling strategy. All of our employees had been through on- and off-the-career trainings at our technological know-how heart, task-dependent substantial voltage specialization, and a terrific offer of IT-know-how to be equipped to function algorithms and other earlier unimagined features.

Does investigate and enhancement for electric powered motors also just take spot by Audi Hungaria, or someplace else?

Within just the group, the central R&D division operates in Ingolstadt. At Audi Hungaria, far more than 400 engineers perform on long run-associated assignments. The specialized advancement in Győr has been a big contributor to the design of the e-motor, largely in the design of cast components. The complex development of Audi Hungaria supports prototype creation, series output and performs lifestyle-cycle tests on examination stands in a weather cabin.

How are the electric motors from Audi Hungaria transported to Brussels to be positioned in e-trons?

E-motors developed at Audi Hungaria and meant for the Audi e-tron are delivered to Brussels by coach.
