In addition to the Chair of Production Engineering of E-Mobility Components (PEM), the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University, the Japanese vehicle manufacturer Isuzu and the Ramp-Up Factory are involved in the research project.
in Groß-Dölln near Berlin and completed its first successful test drive.
first successful test drive. In recent months, several driving tests had already been completed in Aachen to simulate the so-called “ironing on” of the current collector, a pantograph, to the overhead line while stationary. On the test track in Brandenburg, the truck was then brought into contact with the overhead line for the first time while driving and supplied with power for propulsion via the pantograph.
Together with science and industry, the Ramp-Up Factory forms an expert network that deals with specialist trend topics. With its technical equipment and know-how in the production of small series, especially of (electric) vehicles, the Ramp-Up Factory primarily supports small and medium-sized companies.
