Swedish metal powder producer Höganäs AB recently unveiled the company’s new powerful and efficient electric bike drive system at the Eurobike 2012 show and announced the selection of AllCell Technologies as battery partner for the system.

battery were on display at the Eurobike 2012 show 

Höganäs has been developing soft magnetic composites (SMC) for the electric motor industry for two decades. Building upon the company’s experience as a major supplier to the automotive industry, the electric drive system’s low energy losses and compact motor design are made possible by the use of company’s Somaloy® technology.

Höganäs selected AllCell for the benefits provided by the company’s proprietary phase change material (PCM) thermal management technology. The AllCell PCM is integrated into each battery pack, absorbing and conducting heat away from the lithium-ion cells and playing the same role that complicated liquid cooling systems perform in today’s electric cars, but at a fraction of the cost. Because no other electric bike batteries have a thermal management system at all, AllCell’s batteries last 50% – 100% longer than analogous competitive batteries.

“We are very excited to be working with AllCell,” stated Raissa Kruse, Höganäs Electric Drive Systems Manager. “Höganäs and AllCell share a common view on the importance of safety and robustness for personal transportation products. The Höganäs drive system in combination with AllCell’s battery solutions really provides great value for our customers.”
