2019-01-15 10:28:06    hit:14667

AxleTech designs, engineers, and manufactures powertrain systems for everything Between the Wheels™. We provide integrated solutions for on-highway electric vehicles, including Class 6,7, and 8 trucks, terminal tractors, lift trucks, as well as transit applications. 

Our solution includes customized electronic control systems that are ISO 26262 compliant, delivering best-in-class packaging, performance, and efficiency. Our strategic partnerships with key industry leaders, such as Proterra, Wrightspeed, and TM4 have led to the development of groundbreaking custom, fully-integrated electric powertrain systems.

E4000 SERIES

AxleTech is developing a complete line of e-axles. The e4000 axle incorporates an electric motor that covers a wide range of payloads, while also meeting global on-highway and off-highway vehicle requirements. The e4000 axle is designed to handle high torque at low or zero RPM, which is necessary in electric vehicle applications.

E5000 SERIES

AxleTech’s new product line, the eSeries, is focused on serving the growing electric powertrain market. eSeries axles incorporate an electric motor that covers a wide range of payloads, while also meeting global on-highway and off-highway vehicle requirements. The new eSeries product line is designed to handle high torque at low or zero RPM, which is necessary in electric vehicle applications.

KEY FEATURES

  • Patent pending electric motor gear box

  • Parallel axis helical gear set design improves durability and performance

  • Extends gear and bearing life in regenerative braking mode

  • Meets the requirements of low floor applications

ELECTRIC WHEEL END

AxleTech is offering a new planetary wheel end specifically designed for electric drivetrain systems to produce extremely low noise, while delivering high strength, high efficiency, and long product life. 

It is available as an independent module or as part of the range of AxleTech’s electric axles, which incorporate many motor configurations. This wheel end is a compelling solution for the ever-increasing electrification of on-highway and off-highway vehicles.

Features and Benefits

Helical planetary gears

Operate silently and increase strength. Significantly reduce noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) and boost strength by 38%, when compared to spur gears of the same tooth size and width.

Robust design

Thrives in the harsh duty cycles of electric drivelines with regenerative braking while achieving a design life of 750K miles without major rebuilds.

Multiple planetary ratios

Satisfy a range of torque requirements.

Various brake options

Match a large number of OEM specifications.

ABS

Improves vehicle on-road control and decreases on-road stopping distance.

AXLETECH & WRIGHTSPEED E-AXLE

AxleTech partnered with Wrightspeed on a custom axle incorporating Wrightspeed's proprietary GTD™ Power Unit (Geared Traction Drive), which delivers greater power to the wheels through a quiet electric motor. Wrightspeed’s complete powertrain system features regenerative braking and a range-extending turbine generator, the Fulcrum™, which enables heavy-duty electric vehicles to operate as efficiently as possible. The custom AxleTech-Wrightspeed solution is suitable for on-highway applications, including class 8 refuse collection trucks and class 7 transit buses.

PROTERRA DUOPOWER™

Proterra designed and developed an innovative drivetrain system for its Catalyst® E2 electric bus and worked with AxleTech for its engineering and manufacturing expertise, resulting in a drivetrain with optimal operating and packaging efficiency. The fully-integrated powertrain with new 2-speed gearboxes is a major contributing factor in achieving a 20% efficiency improvement over the previous generation powertrain. Proterra recently set the world record for the longest distance traveled by an electric vehicle on a single charge: 1,101.2 miles.

5000 SERIES EISAS™

AxleTech manufactures a range of Independent Suspension Axle Systems from light-duty to heavy-duty high-mobility vehicles. Our ISAS® line features a double-wishbone design that provides unrivaled ride control and handling with superior cross-country mobility and safety in all operating environments. Our products have proven field performance around the world through vigorous testing and exceptional engineering. The new eISAS™

5000 Series electric independent suspension is a concept that AxleTech is engineering for full battery electric vehicles (BEV), fuel cell range extender electric vehicles (FCEV), and internal combustion engine (ICE) or turbine generator range extenders (REV).
