Magnomatics map the road ahead at Aachen expo

Magnomatics, the Sheffield-based world leader in magnetic gear technology, will showcase the company’s MAGSPLIT powertrain for low carbon vehicles at next month’s prestigious Aachener Kolloquium.

The sell-out event celebrates the best, most innovative automotive and engine technology in today’s market, attracting around 1,800 participants from across the globe.

The MAGSPLIT powertrain has been selected to be displayed on the Advanced Propulsion Centre UK (APCUK) stand. The device combines engine power with an electrical boost system to provide a simple yet highly efficient hybrid powertrain.

Magnomatics has already signed a collaboration agreement with Changan UK, the British arm of the Chinese car manufacturer Changan, the world’s 15th largest car producer which sold five million vehicles last year. The partnership will see MAGSPLIT used in two Changan models, the Eado and the CS75.

Changan UK was established in 2010 with the aim of specialising in the design and development of powertrain technology for its parent company’s next generation vehicles.

The APCUK supports low carbon initiatives by providing funding, opportunities for collaboration and expertise in order to cement the UK’s position as a global frontrunner in the low carbon vehicle market. A partnership between the government and the automotive industry, the organisation has engineered the investment of £1 billion over the next 10 years.

Magnomatics also recently showcased MAGSPLIT at the one of the UK’s leading low carbon vehicle shows at Cenex-LCV 2018.

Magnomatics’ CEO David Latimer said he was delighted that APCUK had chosen to showcase MAGSPLIT at the event: “Aachener Kolloquium is one of the key dates in the diary of decision-makers from the entire European automotive sector, therefore it is extremely pleasing that our technology will be part of this prestigious show.

“MAGSPLIT offers greater efficiency compared with many alternatives, offering a competitive driving experience.”

Aachener Kolloquium runs from October 8-10, with exhibitors including Daimler AG and Rheinmetall Automotive.
