Press Release: Innovation impulses through cross-industrial consortium projects

In the consortium project Printed Electronics, the BMW Group, Lohmann GmbH & Co. KG and Papierfabrik Louisenthal GmbH under the direction of KEX Knowledge Exchange AG have recently developed a prototype of a new heating concept for electric cars. Technological trends can offer potential for companies in a wide variety of industries. “An automotive OEM, a manufacturer of banknote and security papers and an expert in adhesive applications are working together to develop a possible solution for one of the central challenges of the electric car: This network aspect is what makes our consortium projects so special,” says Project Manager Frederik Klöckner.

At the final meeting of the Printed Electronics consortium project, the temperature and homogeneity of the thermal radiation of the prototype of an alternative heating concept for electric vehicles were demonstrated.
