With strong e-mobility market growth, manufacturers are facing new demands regarding rising industrialization and production volume, as well as increasing testing capacity and process automation. To overcome these challenges and to produce high-quality products, appropriate testing solutions for the electrified propulsion system are needed along the whole production chain: from in-process verification to end of line (EOL) and quality audit, to Conformity of Production (COP). At AVL, we accompany you in all project phases from concept, through implementation, to operation. We provide test methodology support and test equipment for electrified propulsion systems for passenger cars as well as light-duty and heavy-duty commercial vehicles.
From working on the internal combustion engine, we have over 40 years of experience in different EOL testing applications. More than 400 AVL test systems are currently installed at production sites worldwide. Our portfolio covers the complete range from components delivery to full turnkey projects. While meeting the ongoing needs of our customers concerning ICE testing, we have developed a strong focus on EOL testing applications in the e-mobility field.
Increasing production volumes and testing rates of up to 100% in the e-mobility sector mean that testing equipment must meet more challenging requirements. This concerns all components of the electrified propulsion system, which are manufactured in an increasingly automated production environment. To make this happen, we seamlessly integrate production testing into production lines, thereby optimizing testing capacity. In addition, connecting highly effective processes and equipment results in a solution tailored to your individual requirements.
At AVL, we see production as the central part of a product’s lifecycle. Production testing is a key data generator in a production line, making it essential for securing and optimizing both production process and product quality. Generated data is also a powerful tool for other phases in the product’s lifecycle – from concept to in-use. To process obtained data usefully, our in-house software solution PUMA 2™ is the perfect companion for our testing equipment.
At AVL, we see our production testing solutions as an important factor for both an effective production process and high product quality – a major pillar our customers can rely on.”
– Robert Nemeth, Department Manager, AVL List GmbH
An efficient and integrated testing solution combines product knowledge and the respective production process. Our Battery Innovation Center (BIC) is a great example of our expertise: here, we bring together our vast experience with production lines and in-depth knowledge of battery technology. We know potential production errors and how to resolve them. This enables us to support our customers with the functional development of new products, as well as with establishing, implementing, and validating highly efficient production processes.
- Global service organization with local support directly at the customer site to ensure continuous production
- Decades of experience in country-specific and customer-specific norms and requirements for the automotive industry around the world
- Support with global standardization of equipment and processes for our customer
