The EV concept, the FW-EVX, will be displayed on the UK National Composites Centre’s Stand, with company representatives on hand to explain the processes and technologies on show.
“As society looks to solutions for more sustainable mobility our industry needs to focus on lightweighting, aerodynamics and electrification,” says Craig Wilson, Managing Director of Williams Advanced Engineering. “Williams Advanced Engineering’s people and capabilities offer our customers solutions to each and all of these challenges. We look forward to sharing our technologies with delegates at JEC World 2018.”
With the automotive industry currently focussed on how it transitions from the internal combustion engine to a fully electric future, a major challenge for manufacturers is how to maximise vehicle efficiency, given current limitations. Responding to this challenge, Williams has reimagined how electric cars are designed and constructed. This new approach is designed to make EVs lighter, safer and greener, with longer range and better performance. The concept features several innovations in battery pack design, cooling systems and lightweight structures, which have each been integrated into a single, scalable platform. As an example, Williams’ engineers have developed a highly automated, near-zero waste process. It is being implemented to create fibre reinforced suspension components on the EV platform, providing up to 40% weight reduction over a conventional aluminium wishbone and at comparable cost. This will be on show at JEC on the FW-EVX.
