For electric drive systems, automobile manufacturers need the internal combustion know-how of their suppliers, says Horst Binnig, head of Rheinmetall Automotive. This should have a positive effect on traditional companies.
The joint venture between Rheinmetall Automotive and China's HUAYU Automotive Systems has developed a production process that is particularly suitable for highly complex engine block geometries and electric motor housings.
KS Huayu Alutech invests around 35 million euros in the construction of a new production hall in Neckarsulm. On 5,000 square meters, the automotive supplier will manufacture structural aluminum components in the future.
