Engineering: ask the right questions at the right time
The engineering process is a core point of focus as the mobility industry transitions from ICE to electrification. The level of expertise required to ask the right questions at the right time is very high.
Thermal management of BEVs: Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs)
Datwyler has developed thermal interface materials focusing on stand-alone gasket solutions for battery systems.
Sealing technologies and solutions for batteries
Datwyler has developed a foldable gasket, which combines advanced elastomer materials with metal plates. This combination enables a battery to be opened without damage should repair or maintenance be required.
A rock solid platform in the world of braking systems
Development of brake systems and how Datwyler is coping with the challenges thanks to its core competencies.
O-rings: materials and surface technology make the difference
The move to electrification opens up a lot of new opportunities for those serving the mobility industry, but there are inevitable challenges from an application standpoint that this transition presents.
O-rings: the system-critial sealing solution with high performance
On the surface, an elastomer O-ring may appear straightforward in terms of design and development, but there are far more processes involved than simply injecting rubber into a mold. Our expert Richard Katona explains how advanced materials development and simulation expertise can mean the difference between a good seal and an excellent one.
EVs open new opportunities for HMI and vehicle interior design
A deeper look at the trend towards electrification and the possibilities surrounding haptic feedback. Haptic feedback is an example of these advances and is an area that is increasingly important in terms of vehicle design, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
How environmentally friendly are hybrid vehicles?
How environmentally friendly a hybrid vehicle is, depends on a great many variables, not least the way in which the boundaries of assessment are drawn. What is often overlooked is the fact that the effectiveness of plug-in hybrid vehicles in terms of their environmental impact depends very much on the driving and charging discipline of their users, especially in the case of large SUVs or luxury vehicles, which are common with this type of powertrain.
A hybrid vehicle is only environmentally friendly if it is used correctly
In a hybrid vehicle, the powertrain consists of a combustion engine and an electric motor. How environmentally friendly this technology really is, depends on many factors
Datwyler expands in-house material capabilities to support e-mobility shift
Project ETEMI was launched in 2020 to address challenges in applications related to new mobility. The project has a material development scope that covers conventional elastomers, liquid silicone rubber and thermoplastics.
