Beyond The Product Portfolio: Value-Added Services You Should Expect from Your Suppliers
The worldwide electric vehicle market is rapidly gaining traction, with many local and global suppliers offering solutions for EV battery pack applications such as thermal runaway protection, compression pads, pack seals, thermal interface materials and more. As Design and Release Engineers, you are accustomed to referencing product data sheets as a starting point, but wouldn’t it be ideal to work with the supplier directly to get tangible feedback on how a product’s properties and functionality can impact behavior and performance in your specific project?
As we continue to define the needs of this emerging market, standards are still being developed and technical requirements often see changes from one project to the next. With this changing landscape, it’s critical that suppliers think beyond the product portfolio to deliver technical expertise and know-how through value-added benefits and services that give actionable real-world application feedback.
In this session at our Fall Virtual Conference on EV Engineering, presented by Saint-Gobain Tape Solutions, you can expect to learn about what possibilities exist to achieve this goal, including testing capabilities, simulation, product customization and co-development, assembly optimization and more. Discover the best ways to leverage your suppliers technical capabilities to innovate.
Other sessions at our Spring Virtual Conference include:
How To Accelerate EV Time To Market Through Robust Subcomponent Testing
As automakers add EVs to their lineups, testing and validation of new models impacts time to market. Automakers can save time by selecting subcomponents that are pre-validated for their application.
Donaldson develops core venting technologies to address various battery pack requirements and tests its battery vents extensively using standard and non-standard test methods.
In this presentation, we will review how proper subcomponent testing can reduce time to market and outline the advantage of validated core technologies over custom-developed solutions. Examples will be shown of application-specific battery vent test methods.
Broadcast live October 17 – 720, 2022, the conference content will span the EV engineering supply chain and ecosystem, including motor and power electronics design and manufacturing, cell development, battery systems, testing, powertrains, thermal management, circuit protection, wire and cable, EMI/EMC and more.
