Bosch Rexroth and Modine Partner On Thermal Management For Electrified Off-Highway Machinery
Collaboration and innovation drive the transition to electric vehicles in industrial vehicles as two transportation industry leaders advance the state of the art together.
[January 9, 2023] As part of its industry-leading efforts to electrify critical off-highway machinery, Bosch Rexroth today announced a partnership with leading thermal management manufacturer Modine (NYSE: MOD). The two organizations are collaborating to bring Modine EVantage (™) thermal management systems to the Bosch Rexroth portfolio of eLION products for electrified off-highway machinery worldwide. Together, Rexroth eLION systems with Modine EVantage thermal management systems advance the electrification of customer platforms in the off-highway segment by delivering low emissions and high-performance EV technology.
“With the increased shift towards electrified mobile machines, there’s a parallel need to manage the thermal output of those crucial components efficiently,” said Zifan Liu, Bosch Rexroth Mobile Hydraulics System Engineer. “This partnership represents a collaborative effort to effectively address that issue and present end-users with the most productive machine possible.”
Bosch Rexroth worked with Modine because of its specialization in complete commercial EV thermal management systems. Modine designed a fully integrated, liquid-cooled thermal management solution for the eLION portfolio. The eLION portfolio includes a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor, electric inverter, onboard charger, DC-DC converter, power distribution unit, high voltage cables with plugs, and a controller. The thermal management system from Modine works seamlessly with the eLion portfolio to maintain optimal battery temperature, efficiently cool power electronics, and ensure passenger comfort.
“Over a century ago, Modine set out to transform thermal management for the transportation sector, and today, in partnership with Bosch Rexroth, we’re tracing back our roots to meet the evolving needs of electrified mobile off-highway machinery,” said Gina Maria Bonini, Vice President and General Manager of Advanced Thermal Systems at Modine. “This collaboration allows us to leverage our state-of-the-art heat exchanger technology and intelligent electronic products to deliver the optimal thermal conditions for the critical battery and electronic components on which Bosch Rexroth customers rely.”
