Our highly efficient drive solutions are at the heart of our endeavours to achieve clean and sustainable mobility. Under the guiding principle of “Best Practice APL”, we have been setting industry standards for many years with advanced, technologised and highly automated testing technologies and test fields – particularly in the automotive sector as well as in the petroleum and oil industry.

We support our customers in the digitalisation and performance optimisation of their development processes, which leads to a significant reduction in costs and development times and optimises the use scenarios of test and trial carriers. Our expertise covers the entire portfolio of our customers’ powertrains, whereby we develop and validate solutions that minimise consumption, are efficient and offer high performance. Our tools of the trade include numerous roller test benches and drive test benches, which enable us to carry out precise and comprehensive tests.

Through our commitment to the development of Sustainable Powertrains, APL is positioning itself as a leader in the evolution of vehicle powertrains. Our innovative solutions are designed not only to minimise environmental impact, but also to maximise the performance and reliability of our customers’ vehicles.

Basic application of hybridised drives

  • Technology strategies:

    Development of technology strategies to achieve new emission targets while complying with all current and future legislation.

  • Qualification of components:

    We lay the foundation for the design of future drives by qualifying components and taking customer-specific target values into account.

  • Increased efficiency:

    Calculation of the characteristic maps for the relevant functions to optimise system efficiency.

Powertrain in the Loop

  • Powertrain HIL environments:

    From the concept phase to series production, we use our PWT hardware in the loop (HIL) environments as high-performance development tools.

  • Securing of milestones:

    Our tried-and-tested methods and tools support the safeguarding of milestones in our customers’ development processes.

  • Testing of new and innovative drive concepts:

    Whether virtual or real: we plan and carry out tests and analyses to develop new, efficient concepts for components and systems.

Measurements in the vehicle – roller and road

  • OBD data acquisition and measurements:

    APL carries out on-board diagnostics (OBD) operations including the associated measurements for customer-specific requirements.

  • Application development for derivatives:

    APL engineering for classic, hybrid and electrically motorised drives throughout the entire development process.

  • Global protection:

    Testing and validation of the drives through worldwide validation of the concepts in real driving operation.
