Increased Efficiency & Autonomy in Motor Production

Request Number N980490
Need details
Description

IncWell's partner seeks new methods and technology to permit great speed, efficiency and, if possible, autonomy, when producing and assembling components for state-of-the-art asynchronous motor (ASM) or permanent magnet synchronous (PMSM) motor stator/rotors.

 

Background

ASM and PMSM assemblies are comprised of stacks of thin, magnetic metal plates, designed to minimize eddy current losses. While these thin sheets do enable low losses, they also require a high degree of production effort. Typically, a sheet is first stamped, work hardened (if applicable), stacked and connected.

 

Modern production processes can produce a high volume of sheets per minute (on the order of 600/minute).

 

IncWell's partner seeks approaches capable of fast, cost effective stator/rotor assembly which also enable a high degree of freedom in design as well as one or more of the following advantages:

 

  • integration of stator/rotor cooling
  • integration e-motor winding
  • offers high magnetic characteristics and high mechanical strength
  • permanent magnets (if used) are mounted during production (or completely replaced)

 

Key Success Criteria

The successful technology will:

  • Permit freedom of design and integration of cooling (especially in notched area)
  • Improve speed of assembly per meter of active length of stator/rotor
  • Be cost effective assembly of stator/rotor
    • ideally cost neutral to existing technology

 

Possible Approaches
IncWell's partner is open to all approaches.
Approaches not of interest

Preferred Collaboration types
  • Technology Licensing
  • Technology Acquisition
  • To Be Negotiated
Items to be submitted

When responding to this request, please be sure to provide a non-confidential description of the technology you propose along with information regarding your alignment with the Key Success Criteria as well as your desired business relationship with IncWell's partner.
