Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to develop agile electric motor production system

The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economics will invest €1 million to fund the AgiloDrive research project at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The project is aimed at developing a novel, agile electric motor production system based on modular product- and production-specific technologies. 

Professor Jürgen Fleischer, Head of the wbk Institute of Production Science, stated, “In this way, we will enable future flexible, but still economically efficient production of various models and numbers of electric motors based on various technologies. This will allow cost-reducing scaling effects to be used for various product series and manufacturing technologies.”
