Big development for micromotor winding
The copper winding is the most important component in a micromotor, which is used in all sorts of devices – from the electric toothbrush to modern industrial robots. Despite being so important, the way these copper windings are produced has not changed much over the last 40 years. They are either wound by hand or produced by expensive and complex machines. The EU-funded MicroMotors project is developing a new way to produce micromotor windings: printing them on printed circuit boards before rolling them with high precision. This approach to producing windings has many user benefits: motors are easier and less costly to prototype. The project will focus initially on the surgical/dental power tools market.
