Protective Shields for Electric Cars
New lightweight solutions to seal against electromagnetic radiation
Freudenberg Sealing Technologies thinks e-mobility in new dimensions: Busses, Trucks, trains, ships and other industrial applications such as construction and agricultural machinery. Today, our tried-and-tested complete high-tech system solutions provide precisely tailored answers to tomorrow’s mobile transport requirements. Electric buses powered by high-performance batteries or trucks without nitrogen oxides are already a reality. In the areas of thermal management, safety and multifunctionality, we are continuously advancing innovative e-mobility technologies.
To this end, Freudenberg is developing large-format high-performance batteries with XALT Energy. In addition, we are also working in the fuel cell sector with innovative solutions, including perfectly matched, intelligent combinations of batteries and fuel cells. For a powerful and sustainable mobile future.
Claus Möhlenkamp, CEO of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies
We are continuously expanding our explicit know-how as a comprehensive supplier in the field of future-oriented drive systems: This is ensured by worldwide acquisitions and technological partnerships in battery and fuel cell technology. By acquiring a majority interest in the American battery company XALT Energy, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has developed into a leading supplier of battery modules and systems. The acquisition of the German fuel cell manufacturer Elcore sharpens our core competencies: with over 60 specific technology patents.
Our decades of materials and technology know-how are unparalleled anywhere in the world. But it is only together with the innovative strength of our engineers that Freudenberg develops new material and design concepts for tomorrow’s mobility. We provide well-founded answers to important challenges in the further development of e-mobility. We counter rising energy densities, for example, with intelligent multifunctional solutions in thermal management and functional reliability. Benefit from the high quality and efficiency of our products on your specific path into the mobile future.
Based on its unique materials, systems and technology expertise, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is already building the bridge to tomorrow: with high-performance seals and components, functionally reliable modules such as fuel cell stacks and complete (battery) systems.
State-of-the-art cell technology. Since its founding in 2009, this has been the focus and driving force behind the energy solutions XALT Energy offers customers. XALT’s low-impedance cell designs, in combination with the use of advanced materials and world-class manufacturing standards, result in total energy systems that deliver exceptionally long and reliable lifecycle performance in some of the most demanding environments.
XALT’s prismatic pouch cell offers excellent power-to-energy ratios. Depending upon its chemistry, the prismatic pouch cell also offers high charge and discharge capabilities and can be easily recycled at the end of its useful life. XALT engineers are experts at evaluating the energy needs required to successfully power heavy-duty applications for land and sea; contact them today about configuring the ultimate lithium ion energy system for your needs.
XALT Energy specializes in the development of advanced hardware and software solutions that are perfectly matched to its cell technologies. The result is an optimized energy system that outperforms “mix and match” systems assembled from multiple sources. XALT offers a complete range of products, including battery modules and packs, battery disconnect units, string controller units, master control units, customizable software, battery rack systems and advanced telematics systems technology, that can be configured into a custom energy solution that will keep your applications powered up and running under the most demanding conditions.
Do you have a question? Would you like an expert consultation on the sealing solution that best meets your requirements? Would you like a concrete offer? We look forward to meeting you.
Fuel cell technology has numerous advantages over battery-drive systems. South Korea and some other Asian countries want to heavily promote their use in the coming decade.
