As electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) technology continues to cement itself as the future for the automotive industry, CWIEME Chicago will introduce a dedicated HEV & EV Trail at its 2017 exhibition, taking place at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center between 3-5 October. By positioning suppliers of HEV & EV motors along a route through the show, the leading exhibition for coil winding, transformer and electric motor manufacturing aims to make it even easier and more efficient for visitors and exhibitors to connect with the right business partners.
Participants in the EV Trail will include Tempel Steel Co, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, Nittoku America, Inc., Wieland Metals Inc., Breuckmann GmbH & Co.KG, and many more. “The introduction of the EV Trail reflects an important change in the CWIEME community around the world,” says Haf Cennydd, CWIEME portfolio director. “We are seeing increased attendance from automotive OEMs – Tesla Motors is now a regular participant – while exhibitors are launching new products, tailored to the needs of hybrid and electric vehicle motor designers.”
CWIEME Chicago will also host a series of special sessions between 4-5 October that will focus on key electric motor and powertrain developments, as well as advancements in core adjacent EV technologies, from battery technology to interoperability. The discussions will be led by speakers from McKinsey, Tesla, Mississippi State University, Protean Electric, DHX Machines, University of Kentucky, Charged EV and more. Together, they will look to explore the opportunities and challenges in making EV the dominant reality across domestic and commercial transportation systems over the next five years.
