Electrification without redesign: going the hybrid way

Aradex and Henkelhausen's joint presentation explains the benefits of utilizing standard components and pre-validated software modules to electrify off-highway machines by creating a hybrid powertrain that combines electrification and combustion engine technologies. The recently completed pilot project demonstrated that combining the expertise and existing products of two companies can significantly reduce the development effort and lead times per use case.
