Daimler Truck & Gehring Technologies have signed an agreement on a strategic partnership focusing on building up expertise in process development and prototype construction of commercial vehicle specific electric motors. The strategic partnership with Gehring covers the prototypical construction of so-called “truck-e-fied” e-motors as well as the further development and testing of innovative production processes. Gehring will also supply equipment for the technical center, which is being set up at the Gaggenau plant, Daimler Truck’s competence center for electric drive components. Gehring, based in Ostfildern, Baden-Württemberg, stands for extensive know-how in the production of electric drive trains. The integrated portfolio includes production technology for manufacturing traction drives in electrified vehicles. These designs combine efficient electric motor characteristics with high automation capability and process reproducibility – essential prerequisites for large-scale automotive production.
