The e-mobility landscape is constantly evolving. The change in just one system can have a rippling effect over the entire design and its supply chain. The best example is the electric battery. With the introduction of the battery, weight needs to be reduced to extend battery life, thus necessitating lightweight materials like advanced high strength steel and aluminum. These metals require different lubricants for forming and stamping than are required with traditional steel. 

But this is just one example of dozens or hundreds of areas where new materials, technologies, and manufacturing methods are required to meet the needs of emerging e-mobility design. For suppliers, the solutions they provide must meet completely new requirements – including the selection of high-quality, proven lubrication solutions to achieve optimum performance.
