      Mercedes aumenta la producción de baterias de Litio-Ion

      Nota de prensa, en inglés
      Daimler Expands Manufacturing Capacities for Lithium-Ion Batteries

      – Investments of around €100 million in Deutsche ACCUmotive
      – Frank Blome, Managing Director Deutsche ACCUmotive: “We are looking forward to continuous growth in the demand for Deutsche ACCUmotive batteries in coming years.”
      – Entry in new field of stationary energy storage

      Kamenz, Germany – Daimler AG is expanding the production capacities for lithium-ion batteries with investments of around €100 million in the Deutsche ACCUmotive subsidiary in coming years. Currently, a new building to be completed by mid-2015 is under construction in the Saxon city of Kamenz. “We are looking forward to continuous growth in the demand for Deutsche ACCUmotive batteries”, said Frank Blome, Managing Director of Deutsche ACCUmotive, during the topping out ceremony for the new production hall on Monday, which was attended by Saxony’s Prime Minister Stanislaw Tillich and further guests from politics and the economy. With the completion of the third construction phase Deutsche ACCUmotive will have nearly 20,000 m² of production and logistics space at its disposal – or four times the area since the start of production in the year 2011.

      “The production of battery systems by Deutsche ACCUmotive GmbH in Kamenz will contribute significantly to the growing expertise of the auto state Saxony in the area of electro mobility and battery technology. That is why I am pleased about the three-digit million investments in a company like Deutsche ACCUmotive GmbH here in Kamenz”, said Tillich. “The expansion of the company again shows that Saxony has much to offer as an innovation location. With excellent research close to industry at the technical universities, colleges and research facilities as well as with very well educated specialist manpower. These are the best prerequisites for investments here in Kamenz and in the entire free state of Saxony”, said the Prime Minister.

      Deutsche ACCUmotive was founded in 2009 for the development and production of lithium-Ion battery systems for vehicles. The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler AG. The research and development activities of Deutsche ACCUmotive are located in Nabern in the Stuttgart area and the production takes place in the Saxon city of Kamenz. Series production started in the year 2011. The Daimler subsidiary supplies lithium-ion batteries for the current smart fortwo electric drive and the hybrid variants of the S-, E- and C-Class of Mercedes-Benz, and has delivered more than 50,000 lithium-ion batteries to date.

      “Deutsche ACCUmotive will be producing the lithium-ion batteries for the upcoming electric versions of the smart fortwo and forfour from 2016 as well as for future hybrid models of Mercedes-Benz”, announced Blome. “The development and production of our lithium-ion batteries is competitive in every respect. We are in the black at Deutsche ACCUmotive.” Thus, Kamenz and the Nabern development location will continue to play a key role in high-performance batteries for alternative drives – from hybrid models to the pure electric vehicle – as a high-tech location in the Daimler Group.

      Additional growth opportunities outside the automotive industry also arise for Deutsche ACCUmotive through the entry into the business with stationary applications, where the vehicle batteries serve as the technological foundation for the development of stationary energy storage units. The scalability of the systems enables the use of the lithium-ion batteries in big industry for network stabilization and smoothing of peak loads (peak shaving) for energy producers as well as private households, for example, in conjunction with photo-voltaic installations. Deutsche ACCUmotive can already profit from economies of scales through series production of vehicle batteries and score with the high safety standards from the automotive industry. The company is certified according to ISO TS 16949. “We have already concluded the first customer contracts. With our systems we can make an important contribution to the energy turnaround”, said Blome.

              New Mercedes-Benz Wheels for Summer 2015 – Big wheels with fine details

              It’s time to say goodbye to normal street shoes and start wearing trendy sneakers again – footwear fashion for spring has a chic and sporty air to it. And the same is true of cars when the time comes to switch back to summer tyres: attractive light-alloy wheels from Mercedes-Benz Accessories enhance the appearance of any vehicle while lending an added touch of sportiness and elegance. The trend for the summer 2015: big wheels with fine details.

              It’s time to say goodbye to normal street shoes and start wearing trendy sneakers again – footwear fashion for spring has a chic and sporty air to it. And the same is true of cars when the time comes to switch back to summer tyres: attractive light-alloy wheels from Mercedes-Benz Accessories enhance the appearance of any vehicle while lending an added touch of sportiness and elegance. The trend for the summer 2015: big wheels with fine details.

              From fleeting fashion to lasting trend: even compact-class models such as the Mercedes-Benz A-Class are now riding on 18-inch wheels, while the range of sizes extends to as large as 21 inches on SUV vehicles like the new Mercedes GLE.
              Big wheels are in, according to the Mercedes-Benz designers, but they are shown off to particularly striking effect by fine details such as rim flanges painted in a different colour. Two-tone finishes continue to be popular, as do high-sheen light-alloy wheels, whose special appeal stems from the contrast between the seemingly bare metal and the painted surfaces.

              With the help of the accessories configurator on the http://www.mercedes-benz.de website, suitable wheels and the correct tyre size can be found for practically any Mercedes-Benz. In addition to this, when configuring the vehicle, the appropriate complete summer or winter wheels can also be ordered and then requested from any authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer in Germany when the seasons change.

              Extensive development and testing programme
              Mercedes-Benz light-alloy wheels not only enhance the vehicle’s looks, they also offer an extremely high level of safety. All the wheels are precisely configured for the vehicle models with respect to permissible loads and dimensions. Before the light-alloy wheels are allowed to become reliable companions on every journey, they absolve an extensive development and testing programme.

              Every wheel design must pass a wide variety of endurance tests according to stringent Mercedes-Benz guidelines that go beyond the legal requirements. These include special test procedures that simulate the loads encountered in real traffic situations, as well as material tests using the latest X-ray equipment. High-sheen wheels are subjected to additional tests such as highly corrosive salt-water spray or a 28-day climate cycle. Only when they have passed all the tests, are the wheels then included in the range of genuine Mercedes-Benz light-alloy wheels.

                  La inversión se hará desde ahora hasta 2020

                  Nota de prensa, en inglés
                  Transformation plan for the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant: Mercedes-Benz Rastatt Plant to Invest 1 Billion Euros for Production of Next Generation Compact Cars

                  – Company and Works Council agree on transformation plan for the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant covering further technological development and long-term safeguarding of jobs
                  – Location to produce the next generation of Mercedes-Benz compact cars and to be further strengthened in its role as the global lead plant for compact cars
                  – Markus Schäfer, Member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain Management: “With our transformation plan for the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant we have laid the foundation for the successful production of the next generation of our compact cars. We will achieve significant gains in flexibility and efficiency. At the same time, we will strengthen the role of the location as the lead plant for compact cars within our global production network.”
                  – Stefan Abraham, Site Manager of the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant: “The investment of around one billion euros provides clear proof of the trust we have in the motivation and professional competence of our workforce at this location.”
                  – Ullrich Zinnert, Chairman of the Works Council of the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant: “With the significant investments, the permanent hires, and the conservation of our previous number of vocational training positions, the Rastatt location has been placed on a secured foundation for the future. We are glad that we were able to push and agree upon these items. This is a very positive signal for the workforce.”

                  The Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant will also produce the next generation of Mercedes-Benz compact cars. Between now and 2020, Daimler will invest around one billion euros in the further technological development and expansion of production at the location. At the same time, within the framework of the “Transformation Plan” for the Rastatt plant, the company and Works Council have agreed a package of measures that will lead to significant improvements in the location’s competitive position and ensure stable employment for the next years. This includes more flexible working time arrangements and overall cost savings in the triple-digit million euro range. In addition, the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant will create 250 new permanent jobs. The agreement will run until the end of 2024.

                  “With our transformation plan for the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant we have laid the foundation for the successful production of the next generation of our compact cars. We will achieve significant gains in flexibility and efficiency. At the same time, we will strengthen the role of the location as the lead plant for compact cars within our global production network”, said Markus Schäfer, Member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain Management.

                  Capacity utilization at the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant, which has a workforce of around 6,500 employees, is running at a high level. In 2014, the plant posted a new production record of 292,784 vehicles and thus contributed significantly to the growth seen in the successful compact car segment: In 2014 unit sales grew by 24.7 percent to 463,152 vehicles of the A-Class, the B-Class, the CLA and the GLA. Mercedes-Benz has never before delivered so many compact cars in a single year. In addition, a new sales record was achieved in the first five months of 2015, with 215,148 vehicles sold. The success story of the Mercedes-Benz compact cars began in 1997 with the market launch of the A-Class. Since then, over four million customers have opted for an A-Class, B-Class, a CLA, or a GLA.

                  In line with the Mercedes-Benz 2020 growth strategy, the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant will significantly increase its production in the coming years. “The transformation plan for the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant has been pivotal for us as we could secure the production for our next generation compact cars. Our growth course will lead to significant improvements in economic efficiency and will secure employment at the location for the long term. The investment of around one billion euros provides is a clear proof, that we trust in the motivation and professional competence of the workforce at this location, which delivers top quality on a daily basis”, said Stefan Abraham, Site Manager of the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant.

                  Furthermore, the Rastatt plant will maintain the number of vocational training positions over several years and will offer trainees the opportunity for a permanent job after the successful completion of their programs. At present, the location trains 70 apprentices and dual university students each year. The agreement also includes extensive measures for improving ergonomic working conditions, including 250,000 euros per year that will be reserved from the investment total for ergonomic measures which can be implemented on short notice. Other measures include a health center, which is currently in the planning stage and will require further investments.

                  Ullrich Zinnert, Chairman of the Works Council of the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant: “With the significant investments, the permanent hires, and the conservation of our previous number of vocational training positions, the Rastatt location has been placed on a secured foundation for the future. We are glad, that we were able to push and agree upon these items. This is a very positive signal for the workforce. One particularly important issue for us are the investments to improve ergonomics and address the demographic change.”

                      Pues es un poco tendenciosa Autobild, hasta donde se, se hizo una prueba posterior en condiciones normales y con los neumáticos traseros con la presión correcta (que antes no la tenían). Y no hubo ningún problema…

                        Igual la prueba no es de Autobild, sino de la revista sueca Teknikens Värld, pero si la prueba parece hecha mal a posta, de hecho ya lo habían hecho con otro coche no recuerdo ahora cual, pero ya lo habían hecho.

                          La prueba la hizo la revista sueca.
                          Los alemanes alegaron lo de las presiones y los suecos repitieron la prueba con igual resultado.

                          Y los alemanes dijeron lo de la matización de velocidad, dicendo que a 80 no pero a 75 km/h sí.

                          Tanto mal hace el peso de las baterías como para que el ESP no ayude a corregir trayectoria?? Porque es la variante híbrida.

                            No se donde habrás leído eso Paulo, ya que en la nota de Autobild no lo pone pero yo lo que leí en Pistonudos es que cuando la prueba se realizó por segunda vez con los ingenieros de Mercedes presentes, el coche la pasó sin problemas.

                              En su primer intento, a 72 km/h, el coche perdió tracción por completo al primer volantazo, lo cual es preocupante, como mínimo. Mercedes explicó que este fallo se debió a la baja presión de los neumáticos, pero el magazine sueco ya ha rechazado esta explicación.

                              En un segundo intento, a 67 km/h, el coche tampoco consigue superar el test, y no es hasta que la velocidad se reduce a 64 km/h cunado el C350e lo pasó con nota. Por su parte, el fabricante de la estrella ha asegurado que ha llevado a cabo unos test privados y que la berlina se mostró estable a velocidades de hasta 75 km/h.

                                Paulo creo que estás confundiendo los intentos con los test. En el 1er test que hizo la revista sola se han hecho varios intentos el primero a 72km/h y luego han ido bajando de velocidad hasta que el coche ha pasado el test. Mercedes dice que el coche se comportó de esa manera porque el coche en todo el test, lo que incluye los 3 intentos a diferentes velocidades, iba con presiones mas bajas que las correspondientes. Luego se hizo un segundo test con la revista e ingenieros de Mercedes en el cual el coche se comportó normalmente. Por eso digo que quizás has entendido mal el párrafo de Autobild, cuando pone “En un segundo intento…” sigue siendo en el 1er Test con personal solo de la revista y, según Mercedes, con la presión de los neumáticos por debajo de lo normal.

                                    En el futuro se hibridará para pasar las normativas

                                        [size size=150]Mercedes Benz desarrolla cuatro eléctricos y una versión de hidrógeno del GLC[/size]

                                        Mercedes Benz tiene la intención de poner en el mercado, en 2018, cuatro modelos totalmente eléctricos con un alcance total de entre 400 y 500 kilómetros y de presentar una versión movida por hidrógeno del GLC en 2017.

                                        Thomas Weber, máximo responsable de I+D de Daimler, afirmó que sus desarrollos totalmente eléctricos de largo alcance están muy avanzados. El directivo no quiso desvelar cuales son los planes de Mercedes Benz para competir entre 2017 y 2018 en el mercado de los eléctricos de alta gama, en el que reina Tesla.

                                        Sí admitió que la tecnología de la pila de combustible de hidrógeno tiene unos costes excesivamente altos como para ser viable y que únicamente podrían implementarse en la parte alta de la gama, en modelos como el GLC. Aunque la tecnología ha madurado mucho en los últimos años con la mejora del proceso de miniaturización y empaquetado de todos los componentes la tecnología sigue en sus primeros estadios de desarrollo, con costes de producción muy elevados comparados con la línea de producción habitual.

                                        Respecto a los eléctricos de baterías se espera que el Salón de Frankfurt de 2017 sea el escenario de la presentación de un modelo eléctrico que llegaría a los concesionarios un año después. Con un alcance de entre 400 y 500 kilómetros sería el primer vehículo en utilizar un conjunto de componentes modulares que podrían ser compartidos por los siguientes modelos híbridos y eléctricos del grupo.

                                        Algo que ya puso sobre la mesa el año pasado cuando hablamos de la plataforma EVA que Mercedes estaba desarrollando como base para una nueva serie de vehículos eléctricos. Esta plataforma consistiría en una batería tipo sándwich situada en el piso, con un peso de hasta 400 kilogramos, y uno o dos motores eléctricos capaces de desarrollar potencias de hasta 450 kW (300 kW en el motor trasero y de 90 a 150 en el delantero).

                                        Se especula sobre que estos cuatro nuevos eléctricos sean dos sedanes y dos SUV:

                                        [i]Para la construcción de estos coches habría sido designada la planta de Bremen en la que se desarrollaría toda la oferta de vehículos alternativos, tanto BEV (eléctricos puros) como PHEV (híbridos enchufables). El primer modelo en llegar al mercado sería una berlina situada entre la Clase C y la Clase E seguido de un SUV de tamaño similar, entre el GLC y el GLE. En la fase II se sumaría una berlina del tamaño del Clase S y un SUV de mayor tamaño que el actual GLS.[/i]

                                        El objetivo de ventas de estos modelos sería de unas 20.000 unidades de cada uno de ellos.

                                          Mercedes cambia robots por personas
                                          Al contrario de lo que está pasando, que es tener menos personas en las fabricas, Mercedes, para la fabricación del clase S, está haciendo todo lo contrario

                                          Comentan que es mejor tener personas para la cantidad de modelos que tiene actualmente, ni de las opciones individuales de que disponen los clase S. Comenta que además les sale mas economico

                                            Lo que hace un robot te lo tiene que comprobar alguien.

                                            Cualquier chorraduca la puede solucionar una persona. Un robot, si por motivo x tiene un error, te lo repite n veces hasta que alguien se dé cuenta.

                                            Es muy complejo y hablo desde lo poco que he visto. Relacionado con robótica.
