Mahle unveils technology kit for electric motors

The kit for electric motors combines two of Mahle's benchmark motors.

Mahle developed a new technology kit for electric motors that combines its benchmark SCT and MCT electric motors. The MCT (Magnet-free Contactless Transmitter) and the endurance champion SCT (Superior Continuous Torque) electric motor, which operate contactless and without rare earths, are among its latest innovations in the field of electric drives. Dispensing with rare earths in MCT technology not only makes production more environmentally friendly, but also brings advantages in terms of costs and raw material security, Mahle said.

Mahle added the SCT electric motor can operate at high power for an unlimited period of time. This technological leap was made possible by a new cooling concept, which Mahle said makes the e-motor robust, but at the same time also allows the waste heat generated to be used in the vehicle’s overall system. The company said the compact design also results in a material cost and weight advantage – a lighter motor requires less material in production and at the same time increases the possible payload in commercial vehicles.

The company said electrification is a future strategy field within the framework of its Mahle 2030+ Group strategy. Other fields include thermal management and highly efficient green combustion engines. Mahle showcased the new technology kit and other technical innovations for sustainable mobility at the IAA Mobility in Munich from September 4 – 10, 2023.
