A high-intensity program of three events for rational motion and TM4 in Germany.

Cologne, October 9, 2012

October is marathon month for rational motion and partner enterprise TM4. With three events following close on one another, the two companies are on tour for electric powertrains and vehicle integration throughout the month. The grand finale will be a joint booth at the eCarTec in Munich. Though the three events differ greatly, they all ultimately focus on one and the same thing: the present and future of electric and hybrid mobility.

In times of rising energy prices and economic crises, the steadily expanding field of e-mobility is becoming an ever hotter topic. So it is no wonder that scientists, entrepreneurs, engineers and other EV experts, not to mention private users and interested laypersons, are flocking in droves to the many informational, networking and exhibitor events. The three dates on the October calendar of the Cologne-based system designers and the Canadian motor experts covers the complete spectrum of industry-related events – from highly technical professional conferences to trade-show spectacular that appeals to a broad general audience.

The logistics follow this sequence as well: the exhibition road trip kicks off on October 11 with the SAE 2012 Electric Powertrain Technologies Symposium in Stuttgart. rational motion and TM4 with the new MOTIVE B powertrain series are one of just four exhibitors at this symposium, which is otherwise devoted exclusively to technical presentations and conferences at the forefront of this emerging technology. At this SAE member event, the industry’s leading engineers come together to discuss in depth the latest developments and outlooks for the three types of electric drive motors: permanent magnet motors, induction motors and switched reluctance motors.

The next stop is the E|DPC 2012 – 2nd International Electric Drives Production Conference and Exhibition 2012 in Nuremberg. This is also a specialized event, this time from the international electric motor industry, for a major information update on current market trends, technological innovations, new manufacturing and resource management approaches and more. In short: a high-quality, technically sophisticated conference with substantial networking potential on the manufacturer and supplier level.

Just like last year, the grand finale of Exhibition October is the eCarTec in Munich – one of the largest and most spectacular specialist trade shows for e-mobility and peripheral products. rational motion and TM4 will field a large team as joint exhibitors (booth 708, hall B1) for the duration of the entire trade show week of October 22 - 26. At this specialist and consumer exhibition, the new SUMO HD powertrain from TM4 for medium and heavy utility vehicles will be on display for the first time. With the experience gained at last year’s eCarTec, it is fair to expect that this will prove a highlight of the 2012 electric trade show year.
