PRODUCTS WITH A FUTURE
KLEINER GmbH Pressing Technique has developed and produced tools and stamped parts for the automobile, plastics, electrical, medical engineering and electronic industries for more than 25 years. The company`s research and development department got involved in the area of electric mobility and regenerative energy from its beginning. For example, KLEINER developed solutions for high-current contacting in photo-voltaic systems and in hybrid and electric vehicles, which have been put into mass production. When bus bars are produced for electric vehicles (thick copper parts for the high currents apparent in electric vehicles), it is important that these can be assembled effectively. That means that care must be taken when designing them so that they take up as little space as possible. Another development in the context of electric mobility is assembly groups using a specific film technology. This film technology is very special, as it combines three functions in one system: mechanical fixation, electric insulation and thermal conduction. In addition to stabilising the assembly group, it saves costs by eliminating the need to purchase additional parts. In the meantime, electric mobility has found its way into the company fleet too. For some months now, KLEINER GmbH is the proud owner of an Opel Ampera which is being used by employees for business trips and test drives.
