An Industrial Workbench for Electric Auto Makers

With the EV market sector booming, BOSTONtec has designed a specific solutions that streamline electric auto manufacturing and R&D activities.The company will be revealing its new workbench at The Battery Show North America in September.

BOSTONtec is the Michigan partner of erfi, a Germany-based world leader in innovative testing equipment. In a first for a U.S. industry event, BOSTONtec will showcase the erfi elneos connect – Intelligent Workplace Systems. The elneos connect system, equipped with the new elneos six measuring device, will provide an innovative workstation that can be specifically configured to address battery research and electromobility needs for efficiency and precision testing.

“erfi has long experience in serving the automotive industry and has developed specific systems for electrical safety and functional testing,” said erfi’s owner and managing shareholder Andreas Fischer. “We are excited to have found a partner in BOSTONtec, and we can help complement their line of ergonomic workstations with intelligent measuring solutions.”

The company will also showcase its popular wire-harness ergonomic workbench used for vehicle wiring and charging cable wiring. Why does this matter?

“Electric vehicles use close to twice the number of wires and connectors that traditional combustion vehicles do. So, our innovative wire-harness board configurations improve wiring accuracy and efficiency,” said BOSTONtec president Kelly Wehner. “They decrease repetitive motion injuries and thus reduce costs for EV manufacturers.”

The ergonomic workbench allows the operator to quickly set a wire harness board in place and change position without removing work in process. An important feature when aligning very long wire-harness assemblies that are most often made to order, and hand-assembled.

The Battery Show, the largest battery and electric vehicles technology trade show in North America, is expected to draw 750 suppliers across transportation, stationary, portable, and industrial sectors.
