ADDitively manufactured limited angle torque MOTor for Smart Active Inceptors

Project description

3D printing of high-performance torque motors

Additive manufacturing is rapidly developing into an important tool for manufacturing both flight safety-critical aircraft parts and non-critical flight parts. The EU-funded ADDIMOT project aims to investigate additive manufacturing techniques for designing and manufacturing a new generation of electrical torque motors for use in smart active inceptors. These flight safety-critical systems are the controls that pilots use to direct and manoeuvre the aircraft. These new generation of motors is expected to demonstrate better performance than traditional manufacturing techniques in terms of weight, power consumption, torque density, cost and compactness.
