The 7 focal points for vehicle and machinery electrification
Here are the 7 key considerations for the electrification of vehicles and machines:
- Battery Technology
A reliable and high range battery is essential for efficient operation of the specific vehicle.
- Charging Infrastructure
Crucial for fast battery charging.
The range of an electric vehicle or machine is of great importance. It must meet the specific requirements and demands of its environment and application. This involves considering the alignment between battery technology, energy consumption, and the efficiency of the propulsion system.
A lower total weight of the object results in lower energy consumption, leading to greater range, higher efficiency, and payload capacity. Therefore, designers of electric vehicles and machines need to take the weight of the vehicle or machine into account. Engineers at Aluminized are happy to assist. Request a free feasibility check. Lightweight, strong aluminum is often used as a material for this reason.
- Thermal Conductivity
Additionally, aluminum is an excellent thermal conductor, which can contribute to a better-performing battery and longer lifespan. As specialists, we are happy to explore how aluminum can be valuable for your application.
Costs can be higher compared to conventional fuel-powered counterparts. Various possibilities exist to reduce these costs, such as optimizing the design (Aluminized is happy to assist) or choosing a scalable production method.
Electric vehicles have the potential for lower environmental impact, but it’s important to ensure that the production process and lifecycle of the vehicle or machine are also sustainable. This requires, for example, the use of sustainable materials and the development of battery recycling methods.
