Global engineering, simulation and testing technology operation AVL List has signed an agreement with Comau, a specialist in industrial automation, to develop innovative modular and flexible powertrain solutions.
The agreement will see the two companies cooperate on the simulation, design, assembly and testing of powertrain components for both traditional and electric vehicles.
“Our partnership brings together two market leaders in their respective fields, said Andrew Lloyd, automation systems COO, Comau. “With shared objectives and complementary competencies, we are able to offer our customers the best of both worlds, providing the market with a unique interface for the whole assembly process, from design to execution.”
“The combination of know-how offered by Comau, with its enhanced Industry 4.0 solutions, and AVL, with its design experience in the integration of powertrain components and related testing methodologies, will bring battery assembly and end-of-line testing to a new level,” adds Urs Gerspach, executive VP, AVL List.
