The automotive industry is undergoing a significant revolution driven by regulations and fast-paced electrification. The need to drastically reduce emissions is one of the main drivers of rapid electric vehicle (EV) production growth.

Each EV powertrain component is required to deliver a specific performance based on its designed functionality. Aside from the product design and material selection, three critical areas impact the component performance. These are:

  • geometrical accuracy 
  • surface texture 
  • surface integrity

High-performance surface grinding solutions play a crucial role in meeting stringent quality requirements and maximising the electric powertrain efficiency.
