    MAG IAS GmbH delivers manufacturing technology for the new generation of electric engines

    The system supplier for machine tools, MAG IAS GmbH, has been commissioned with the delivery of a new as well as the expansion of a second production line for housing components of the future E drive of the Volkswagen Group. Systems for machining powertrain components from MAG IAS GmbH are in daily production use at all global automotive manufacturing companies. The development of new production systems for machining workpieces of the electric powertrain is the central challenge that MAG is successfully facing due to the progressive change towards E-vehicles.

    The machines of the SPECHT series are prepared with technologically leading processes for workpieces of the electric drive train). With the investment in an existing line as well as in a new line for the modular e-drive system (MEB), the Volkswagen plant in Kassel-Baunatal once again confirms its trust in the competence and implementation strength of MAG IAS GmbH in a strong competitive environment.

    Both production systems for the 2 types of MEB drive housings include not only the machining of the components but also the automatic handling of the components that are then finished for assembly. The aforementioned components are finished on the machines of the SPECHT 450/500 DUO series, each with 2 work spindles. By using linear motors for the axis drives, the customer benefits from the highest productivity and precision as well as low maintenance costs. The agile manufacturing cells of the system stand for the flexibility of the different types of actuators in the same way as for future modifications of the components. MAG IAS GmbH specialises as a system supplier for vehicle powertrain components and also supplies other premium and volume suppliers of e-vehicles with production facilities.
