The race for future market shares is proof that e-mobility is not only shaking up the passenger car sector, but has long since taken hold of the truck sector as well. Established manufacturers are being joined in the market by a number of newcomers and start-ups. The first major contracts for the ‘new kids on the block’ are a sign that significant changes are taking place, and there is currently no telling who will succeed in the market. What is clear, however, is that the manufacturing of commercial vehicles is becoming more diversified and complex. Due to this, manufacturers and suppliers rely, more than anything, on flexible manufacturing systems to meet these demands.
EMAG identified this need and, in response, developed a compact manufacturing solution for truck wheel hubs – although, it’s not necessarily just for electric trucks.
