Paving the way for ironless electric motors
Conventional iron-core electric motors are used in millions of applications. They are cheap to manufacture and are produced in high volumes. Ironless electric motors are lighter and can give the same output but they are more expensive. The EU-funded PROMINEL project will produce a prototype demonstrator production line for electric motors based on a patent pending Fibre Printing production technology by Norway’s Alva Industries. This technology promises a reduction in production cost of ironless motors with an increase in performance. The technology also has the potential to impact other industries where ironless technology is highly beneficial, including wind power generators, medical devices, robotics, precision manufacturing equipment, and automotive and marine propulsion systems.
