TI Fluid Systems to set up e-mobility innovation centres in Japan and South Korea
TI Fluid Systems will open new e-Mobility Innovation Centers (eMICs), will fast-track development of thermal management solutions for EVs, in Nagoya, Japan and Incheon, South Korea this year.
TI Fluid Systems (TIFS), a leading global supplier of automotive fluid systems technology, will open two new e-Mobility Innovation Centers (eMICs) in Japan and South Korea later this year. The announcement was made earlier this month.
The new centres, located in Nagoya, Japan and Incheon, South Korea, will fast-track the development of thermal management solutions for electric vehicles (EVs) in Asia, and allow TI Fluid Systems to work more closely with its customers in the region.
Following TI Fluid Systems’ first eMIC, which opened in Rastatt, Germany last year, the new facilities bring together six core competencies: virtual engineering, designing, processing, prototyping, product testing, and vehicle testing. This empowers engineers in the region to design, develop, simulate and visualise thermal management solutions at vehicle, module and component level. Unique to TI Fluid Systems, this enables it to introduce class-leading technology to market much faster than before.
Logistically closer to customers
TI Fluid Systems’ new Japan eMIC is strategically located in Nagoya, in close proximity to its customers’ technical centres and the Shinkansen high-speed railway. Set across 1,900 square metres, the eMIC features a state-of-the-art virtual reality system, 3D printing capabilities and an impressive high-resolution digitalised visualisation.
Likewise, TI Fluid Systems’ new South Korean eMIC is located in Incheon, in close proximity to its customers’ technical centres and the international airport. It also features a state-of-the-art virtual reality system, 3D printing capabilities, as well as product and vehicle testing capabilities. Underlining TI Fluid Systems’ commitment to electrification, the South Korean eMIC also features multiple recharging stations.
The opening of the centres in Japan and South Korea continues TI Fluid Systems’ plan to build a global network of eMICs, with further facilities in the Asia Pacific and North America regions set to be announced later this year.
Hans Dieltjens, President and CEO of TI Fluid Systems, said, “The opening of these new facilities in South Korea and Japan represents an important milestone in the development of our e-Mobility Innovation Center network. Vehicle manufacturers in these markets are playing a leading role in defining the next generation of EVs globally. Working more collaboratively to tackle the thermal management challenges they face will have a profound impact on manufacturers’ development rate and vehicle performance.”
