Höganäs Selects AllCell as Battery Partner for New E-Bike Drive System
Swedish metal powder giant Höganäs AB announced selection of lithium-ion batteries from AllCell Technologies for their new E-bike electric drive system, the company's first foray into e-mobility.
The Höganäs electric drive system combines outstanding performance and Scandinavian design, ready to provide improved mobility to a new generation of electric vehicles. By integrating the company’s popular Somaloy® SMC materials into e-bike motors, Höganäs has developed a truly superior product. Its high efficiency extends battery life and consequently prolongs the driving range. Optimizing the entire system allows smooth and intuitive interaction between driver, drive system, and battery.
Following a rigorous vendor search, Höganäs selected AllCell for the benefits provided by AllCell’s proprietary phase change material (PCM) thermal management technology. The AllCell PCM is integrated into each battery pack, absorbing and conducting heat away from the lithium-ion cells and playing the same role that complicated liquid cooling systems perform in today’s electric cars, but at a fraction of the cost. Because no other electric bike batteries have a thermal management system at all, AllCell’s batteries last 50% - 100% longer than analogous competitive batteries.
“We are very excited to be working with AllCell,” said Raissa Kruse, Höganäs Electric Drive Systems Manager. “Höganä
