Innovative Winding Technologies

Request Number N079950
Need details
Description

IncWell's partner seeks cutting edge methods to provide e-motor winding with higher degrees of automation.

 

Background

The production of electric motors (e-motors) requires a semi-manual winding of copper wires, which is a bottle neck to process efficiency. 

 

The wires, which must be tightly packed in order to provide sufficient power density, also must be adequately insulated against adjacent wires and the magentic sheet metal of the stator/rotor assembly. This insulator has two layers (a paper layer and a lacquer layer) which adds thermal resistance (due to poor thermal transfer properties) and operational limits (the standard lacquer cannot exceed 180°C).

 

To improve its internal production processes, IncWell's partner seeks new approaches for e-motor winding that can deliver increased speed and efficiency as well improved product performance.

 

Key Success Criteria

The sucessful technology will:

  • Require low assembly forces
  • Provide high degree of copper wire filling (for example: by delivering novel wire shapes)
  • Provide functional integration of stator/toor cooling, especially inside the stator/rotor notch
  • Operate at temperatures reaching 400°C
  • Possess ampere capacity up 500Arms
    • stretch limit of 800Arms
Possible Approaches

IncWell's partner is open to all approaches.
