Partnering opportunity

New applications for electrically-driven vehicles

Summary

An Italian SME active in the field of manufacturing of innovative mechanical power systems for electric vehicles - notably powertrains, differential and traction, powered axles, transaxle drives - is interested in new partnerships for commercial agreements with technical assistance to extend its product range to new applications and markets.

Partner sought

The company believes that their products can be applied for new and “futuristic” kind of vehicles. Special vehicles have been already produced successfully, such as off-roads, wheelchairs for disabled, electric minibuses, karts for different applications, personal mobility solutions... etc. In such a view, the partners sought are basically companies developing and manufacturing the above quoted vehicles where to apply their electric drives.

Description

The Italian SME's core business deals with development and production of innovative electrically driven power systems for vehicles, personal mobility, logistics handling applications, and so on. Since early 60s the company has focused on development and production of gearboxes for agriculture and electric vehicle transmissions. The present range of off-the-shelf parts include: electric transaxle, gearboxes, dual drive units and complete powertrains. These subassemblies find their use in a wide and heterogeneous range of third parties final products, such as: electric forklifts, electric trolleys, agriculture and farming mobility equipment, mobility devices for disabled, electric zambonis (ice rink resurfacers), urban waste collection fleet, small electric buses, etc. Electric horsepower covers, depending on the model, from 0,3 kW (0,4 HP) to 19 kW (25 HP). Maximum static weight loads range from 200 kg to 3 tonnes. Gearbox reduction and maximum torque are selectable over a vast range of values. Special products can be developed by the internal engineering team upon specific customer needs. The company holds internally all the competencies and resources to go from concept to end product: mechanical engineering design, 3D CAD, fast prototyping facilities, design and master mold production for casting, equipment for quality testing, one by one, of the final assemblies before shipment. For this purpose test benches are in operation for noise, sealing of casts and mechanical junctions, electric insulation, etc., for assuring 100% fault free and long lasting equipment, usually requiring little or no maintenance at all. The company is ISO 9001:2008 certified. The company believes that their products can be applied for new and “futuristic” kind of vehicles. In such a view, the commercial agreement with technical assistance can help them to explore new applications and market segments.

Advantages and innovations

The company is able to face and match custom user needs and special application requirements. The company, by holding internally all the necessary expertise and skills, is able to propose the most effective solutions, both picking from the already developed product range, but also by adapting one of them to particular requests, or even developing new products. Time to market is one of the key issues, and the company is able to safely respect deadlines without compromising any phase of development and production. The 3D CAD and 3D prototype printing allow to check in the real world if a prototype fits inside a customer's new project. Last but not least, the compact E-Mobility solutions contribute to minimize the environment impact, particularly in urban areas.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
