Your Expert Partner in Fastening for Electric Vehicles
What impact do fasteners have in electric vehicles?
Sustainability and lowering carbon emission is the common goal of the majority of our society worldwide. In accordance with that goal, the automotive market has been developing sustainable solutions and vehicles with lower carbon emissions. The electric vehicle is one of the fastest-growing sectors in today’s world. Both consumer and public demand for electric vehicles has pushed EV manufacturing, its supply chain, as well as the corresponding infrastructure such as charging stations to grow and develop innovative solutions rapidly.
What impact do fasteners have in electric vehicles? Firstly, fasteners are everywhere in an automobile inside out accounting for even around 50% of all individual parts. The smarter the fastening is, the lighter the vehicle will be, which has a direct impact on energy consumption and carbon emissions. Light-weighting is especially a focus in EV battery manufacturing, as one of the heaviest components in an EV.
Secondly, secure fastening ensures the safety of the components of an EV. Fastening solutions for EV powertrains and batteries, which are the heart of an EV, need to be highly durable and resistant to vibrations and extreme temperatures to overcome range anxiety.
