As the popularity of e-bikes increases, so do the production figures for their parts. Most motor housings are made of aluminum and magnesium die castings. One of the biggest challenges is machining the housings but not only because of the light metal properties.
Mapal, an international supplier of precision tools for the machining of almost all materials, has optimized the conventionally manufactured bell tool by means of the laser melting process. What are the advantages?
Whether housing for drive, gearbox, electric pumps or electric steering – Alupress Berlin GmbH is a specialist for the complex machining of die-cast parts and relies on the new setting fixture UNISET-P from MAPAL.
E-mobility not only affects automobile manufacturers, but also has an impact on smaller suppliers. Dr. Jochen Kress of Mapal explains what changes a C parts supplier is facing and how the company intends to compensate for potential sales losses.
