In particular, Schaeffler will showcase its latest generation of all-solid-state batteries (ASSB) as well as hydrogen fuel cell technologies that address industry needs related to power density, range and commercial options. The all-solid-state batteries offer higher energy density, extended range, fast-charging options, and important safety advantages due to their non-flammable nature.

On the other hand, Schaeffler’s eRocker System is an electromechanical valve system used to deactivate the exhaust valves of the engine. The system consists of three main components: a dual-pin electromagnetic actuator; two slider bars; and either eight (4-cylinder) or 12 (six-cylinder) switchable roller finger followers.

Finally, Schaeffler bearings are specifically designed to meet high load and lifetime requirements as well as low-rolling resistance for increased range and reduced fuel consumption. Utilizing the company’s bearings solutions, truck operators can achieve a significant reduction in TCO (total cost of ownership). The company will feature a variety of bearing designs from its wide product portfolio, including accessory units and special applications for commercial vehicles.
