At the 11th Schaeffler Symposium, the automotive and industrial supplier will present a high number of technology innovations to over 400 customers. The range extends from components and system solutions for optimising powertrains based on internal combustion engines and the electrification of automotive drives for hybrid vehicles and electric vehicles, through to new vehicle concepts. With the “Schaeffler Mover” and a cargo variant of the “Bio-Hybrid”, Schaeffler will present specific vehicle concepts for future urban mobility. Thanks to its wide range of attractive technologies, Schaeffler is making a valuable contribution to shaping mobility for tomorrow. 

Wide range of products

A very wide range of products is therefore being presented to specialist visitors during the ‘Schaeffler Symposium’ and the combined technology show. This includes world firsts, such as dedicated hybrid transmissions – customised transmissions for hybrid vehicles – or the “Schaeffler Mover”, the world’s first technology platform for robo-taxis and urban transport vehicles. Thanks to electric wheel hub drives, 90-degree steering system, and a modular design, this compact, flexible and freely scalable platform is suitable for a range of different mobility solutions in urban areas. 

Technologies for individual powertrains

Technologies for individual powertrains – internal combustion engines, hybrid vehicles and electric vehicles – are being presented in specialist presentations and in an exhibition divided according to the type of drive.  In addition, multi-dimensional ‘Worlds of Experience’ provide an insight into the topics of urban mobility, digitalisation, and the energy chain and simulations demonstrate Schaeffler’s activities in these fields. There is also a presentation on the research activities carried out in Schaeffler’s worldwide network of cooperating universities (SHARE).

The Symposium has been taking place for 40 years. Every four years, the technology company provides its customers with comprehensive insights into its latest innovations.  The event has developed into a congress that lasts for several days, in which specialist visitors are given a demonstration of Schaeffler’s products in around thirty specialist presentations and with the aid of a wide range of exhibits. The high-tech symposium in Baden-Baden marks the start of a series of events, which is continued in the second half of the year in North America, China and Japan. “We are now reaching all our customers’ experts worldwide with this series of events,” says Prof. Peter Pleus, also CEO Automotive OEM at Schaeffler. “The Symposium offers an opportunity for a direct exchange from developer to developer. This makes it interesting for both ourselves and our customers.”
