For years, GROB has been known for its innovative fair presentations at the EMO. Besides its own new developments, such as the universal machining centers of the access series and the new linear memory system (PSS-L), one exhibit in particular takes center stage at the GROB stand, which was provided by Volkswagen. It's the chassis of the VW ID car series, in which the MEB (modular electrification kit) is installed, whose electric motor is completely manufactured on GROB manufacturing lines.
GROB provides manufacturing lines for the production of the hairpin stator and the rotor, the overall assembly of the e-axle and the conventional machining of all elementary parts of the housing (end shield, intermediate gearbox, gearbox and stator frame). This is a great example which illustrates that GROB is able to offer everything from a single source; from conventional machining and assembly to electromobility.

Currently, Volkswagen is presenting its first battery electric vehicle, the ID.3, at the IAA in Frankfurt, which is built on the newly developed modular e-drive kit - called MEB in short. Its electric drive consists of the permanent-magnet synchronous motor, which is integrated into the rear axle, including performance electronics and gearbox, a high-voltage flat battery, which is arranged in a space-saving manner, as well as additional sets integrated in the front, such as climate compressor or steering gear.
"We are very proud", says Christian Müller, "that we at GROB were able to significantly contribute to the development of the MEB, especially since Volkswagen will build all future ID models with purely electric drive on this MEB."
