Driving Future Mobility
Here are a few of our most recent solutions:
BENTELER Hyresist Hydrogen tubes
Intensive efforts are being made worldwide to reduce greenhouse gases: Europe plans to be CO2-neutral by 2050; Germany wants to achieve this goal as early as 2045. To achieve this, new energy sources are needed. For example, "green" hydrogen, which, because it’s produced using renewable energy, is CO2-free.
BENTELER has now added seamless, hot-rolled tubes and pipes for the safe distribution of hydrogen to its portfolio: BENTELER HYRESIST. Designed for the construction of hydrogen distribution networks, the range helps make the alternative energy source more readily available – and thus the targeted CO2 neutrality more quickly achievable.
BENTELER small-overlap crash solution
Frontal collisions in vehicle accidents often result in serious injuries to the occupants. In future, an innovative solution from automotive supplier BENTELER will ensure greater safety in so-called small-overlap crashes. These are accidents that involve an oblique impact of only around 25% of the vehicle.
Controlled release of the control arm link helps deflect the vehicle from the obstacle where they would otherwise become locked together. This reduces the force exerted on the occupants in the event of a collision.
BENTELER door concept without B-pillar
BENTELER not only makes mobility lighter, safer and more sustainable – but also more convenient: to make vehicle entry easier, the metal processing specialist has developed a new door concept that removes the need for a B-pillar.
This production-ready product is even lighter than existing solutions on the market and offers improved safety and material features.
BENTELER rotor shaft components
BENTELER encompasses the expertise of its two divisions, Automotive and Steel/Tube. A current example is its entry into the rotor shaft component business – which includes e-mobility applications. Both the steel division’s metal processing expertise and the automotive division’s development experience come into play here. This is enabling the company to expand its portfolio of tubes for rotor shafts to include individual, lightweight component solutions.
BENTELER covers the entire supply chain – from its own steel production to the tube and processing of the finished component. In this way, BENTELER is making it even easier and more cost effective for its customers to get their mobility solutions on the road.
BENTELER People Mover
BENTELER is offering a special platform concept for a people mover in the minibus segment. The e-mobility solution is designed for minibuses in the 15 to 22 passenger range. With it, BENTELER is meeting the demand for environmentally friendly mobility solutions – even in passenger conveyance. With the platform, the automotive supplier is building on its experience gained with the BENTELER Electric Drive System rolling chassis.
"This innovative solution for passenger cars is already on the market. Many years of know-how and a great deal of practical experience went into the development of the new platform for the people mover,” emphasizes Marco Kollmeier, Vice President of the E-Mobility Business Unit at BENTELER Automotive. "At the same time, the new platform concept also meets the special requirements of passenger conveyance – an area where, until now, the growing demand from mobility providers has met with a very low level of supply. With this, we are taking another innovative step in e-mobility."
