Global engineering, simulation and test technology specialist AVL has signed an agreement with Comau, an industrial automation company, to develop modular and flexible powertrain solutions.
The two companies will work together to virtually design, build and test powertrain components for both traditional and electric vehicles.
“Our partnership brings together two market leaders in their respective fields,” said Andrew Lloyd, automation systems COO, Comau.
“With shared objectives and complementary competencies, we are able to offer our customers the best of both worlds, providing the market with a unique interface for the whole assembly process from design to execution.”
“The combination of know-how between Comau with its enhanced Industry 4.0 solutions and AVL, with design experience in the integration of powertrain components and related testing methodologies, will bring battery assembly and end-of-line testing to a new level,” added Urs Gerspach, executive VP, AVL.
