Allison Transmission completes eAxle assembly line installation

This production line integrates automated assembly features and will manufacture Allison’s eGen Power series of fully integrated electric axles.

Allison Transmission has completed the installation of a new eAxle production assembly line at Allison’s electric axle development and manufacturing facility in Auburn Hills, Mich. This production line integrates automated assembly features and will manufacture Allison’s eGen Power series of fully integrated electric axles, as Allison prepares to progressively increase the output of pilot builds.

In addition to the production assembly line, Allison has also completed the installation of an eAxle specific build verification test protocol. Each eAxle will complete a series of tests to verify every system is functioning to specified performance levels, the manufacturer noted. The test system will ensure that each eGen Power eAxle is manufactured and tested to Allison’s exacting production standards before it ships. Allison has also made significant investments in eAxle dynamometer equipment to support fast, repeatable and reliable engineering development and design validation.

The Auburn Hills eAxle facility is capable of building all products in the eGen Power product portfolio. This includes the eGen Power 100D for heavy duty 6×2 applications, and the eGen Power 130D, which is targeted for European and Asia Pacific applications where a 13-ton gross axle weight rating is required. The facility will also manufacture the 100S, which addresses heavy-duty 6×4 tractors and heavy-duty tandem axle straight trucks, as well as medium-duty truck and school bus applications.
