Where can you use aluminium extrusions in your e-charging stations? With our solutions, we can support you throughout the process with co-creation, feasibility studies, design and engineering support. Doing this efficiently will save you costs and enable you to bring your charging stations to market more quickly. 

Here are some options:

Outer shell.JPGAs an outer shell (4), the use of aluminium improves the perceived quality of your products by integrating the shapes needed for your design. You can slide the different elements inside, thanks to the grooves (3). The screw slots (1) allows you to fix your end elements, making the whole unit non-accessible and waterproof. If necessary, a heat sink (2) can be integrated into the profile section.

For support feet (charging station or reinforced socket), an aluminium extrusion allows new functionalities, in addition to providing a long-lasting solution. By making an H-shaped profile (3), your installer customers will be able to pass the wires inside the foot with ease. Then, a cover profile (2) will close the whole. The screw slots (1) arrange the fixing of the plate. The screw slots (4) are used to attach the end cap and support feet. This type of design enables you to get a building-quality surface. We offer powder coating with Qualicoat certification and anodizing with Qualanod certification. Our experts can help you decide what is best for your project. 

Charging station.JPGFor the charging stations, a cut-to-length aluminium profile can be the main element of your product. Various types of equipment can be fixed with the channel screws (3) in the profile. An integrated hinge function (2) arranges door system options. The specific interface (1) on the opposite side provides a seal, for instance, to achieve tightness. Finally, the screw slots (4) allow the fixing of the plate and the top cap. With extrusions, you have the freedom to create shapes that make your product stand out from the rest.

Fast charger.JPGIn fast chargers, a structural profile simplifies and reduces the number of components. The extrusion can also be used as a heat sink with integrated fins (3). On the face (2), you can assemble various components. Seal slots (4) provide sealing with the other cover elements. Connecting multiple aluminium profiles to create larger assemblies with smart functions also saves you time through faster assembly.

ChargeNode’s pioneering charging technology is helping develop the infrastructure for electric vehicles in Sweden and accelerating the country’s transition toward greener mobility. Using low-carbon aluminium for its centralized charging units product is an added benefit.
Light-weighting has been a focus in automotive and sustainability, especially for reducing emissions from combustion engines. With the introduction of electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid technologies, though, life-cycle assessments are gaining traction in order to establish the real carbon footprint of a vehicle.
Re:Move  is a new, sustainable way to carry and deliver goods to spark new thinking around urban infrastructure and mobility. Made in low carbon aluminum, it is the result of a Hydro EcoDesign collaboration between Hydro, Polestar and other industry leaders in design and e-mobility.
