AVL List, a leading company specializing in engineering, simulation and testing technology for powertrain systems will team up with Comau to develop innovative, modular and flexible solutions for the electrification market. Comau is a leading player in the field of industrial automation products and systems. The two companies will have an open cooperation in simulation, design, assembly and testing of powertrain components for both electric and conventional vehicles.
As an outcome of the agreement, customers will have access to robust, standard solutions on a global scale. This will be backed by a local presence, and hence they will benefit from higher quality products and a shorter time to market. Initially, the two companies will focus on assembly systems and end-of-line testing for automotive batteries. They were inspired to join forces as the electrification market requires experienced, full-turnkey, affordable suppliers who have the capability able to provide powerful assembly and test solutions for electric and hybrid vehicle manufacturing.
Andrew Lloyd, Automation Systems COO, Comau, explained that the partnership will bring together two companies who are market leaders in their respective fields. As they have shared objectives and complementary competencies, they would be able to offer their customers the best of both worlds, thus providing the market with a unique interface for the whole assembly process from design to execution.
“The combination of know-how between Comau with its enhanced Industry 4.0 solutions and AVL, with 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,” states Urs Gerspach, executive vice president, AVL List.
