TECO Electric-Vehicle Powertrain Wins Taiwan Excellence Gold Award
TECO Electric & Machinery has staged a stellar performance in the 29th Taiwan Excellence Awards, receiving the acknowledgment of the honor for 11 products, the highest in the electromechanical manufacturing category.
Following the honor of silver award for the company's meal-delivery robot last year, its electric- vehicle powertrain, T Power, wins the gold award this year, underscoring its achievement in the cutting-edge technology sector.
The "high-performance next-generation electric- vehicle powertrain" is a two-in-one model combining motor and drive, the only such product in Taiwan so far. It features modularized design and high-efficiency permanent synchronous motor, plus a compact structure, with power output 1.8 times existing model of the same grade on the market but 25% less in weight and 15% smaller in size, on top of IE4-grade efficiency. Rolled out in Feb. this year, the product, dubbed "T Power 90 powertrain," has a power output range of 50 kW-130 kW, applicable to various passenger cars and commercial vehicles. T Power enables vehicles to have high slope-climbing strength, thanks to its high-torque motor, as well as longer cruising range than rivaling brands. In addition, it has a patent for low electromagnetic noise. Market reception has been very good, as the company is in talks with potential buyers in Japan, Thailand, India, and Vietnam, on top of confirmed orders, for application in 3.49-ton commercial pick-ups, in Taiwan. Sophia Chiu reveals that the company is actively developing "T Power+." with power output reaching 150 kW-250 kW, applicable to buses, large trucks, and other special-purpose vehicles, while striving to tap the markets of Asia-Pacific and even Europe. TECO has pledged to become the pioneer and leading brand for electric-car powertrain in Taiwan, according to Chiu.
TECO's award-winning items this year boast a wide range, including AGV (automated guided vehicle)-related products and systems, such as smart dish-collection robot, UVC-based anti-pandemic robot, and railless multiple AGV dispatch and management system.
Other items include water-cooling permanent-magnet synchronous variable-frequency water chiller, smart energy-conserving, IoT-connected commercial air-cooling variable-frequency packaged air conditioner, smart-monitoring ultra-high power-density, low-voltage motor, IoT-connected multi-function vector inverter, smart-monitoring variable-frequency permanent-magnet motor, automatic synchronous reluctance motor, and MP500 machine-tool waterwheel system. All of these items are self-developed and have hit the market.
Dubbed as the Oscars of Taiwan's industrial sector, Taiwan Excellent Awards is an annual event, organized by the Bureau of Foreign Trade, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, and implemented by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA). On the heels of its extraordinary performance in the past, TECO will continue to develop innovative products, under the auspices of the corporate vision of "energy conservation, emission reduction, intelligence, and automation," highlighting the excellent value of Taiwan-made products.
