Wurth Elektronik has expanded its lines of high current inductors with new models using flat wire coils. With WE-HCFT 2504, shown at top, the company has added a model with an unusually low overall height to its family of […]
Carpenter Technology, producer of an extensive portfolio of soft magnetic alloys, is continuing to build its expertise in the mass production of stator and rotor stacks, while also fostering future innovation in electrification manufacturing. It […]
With volume orders for its electric motors and hybrid modules, automotive and industrial supplier Schaeffler is expanding its range of powertrain electrification solutions for commercial vehicles. The moves come in step with its objective to […]
By 2030 annual production of EVs is expected to increase roughly ten-fold to 25-30 million, creating a need to more than double global supply of the rare earth elements, neodymium and praseodymium (NdPr), to meet the EV traction motor market requirement.
As BMW Group continues to increase production capacity for its new electric motors and integrated drive systems at its Competence Centre for E-Drive Production at Dingolfing northeast of Munich, it is also ramping up capacity for e-drive production at […]
Iconic luxury car maker Bentley Motors is pursuing two projects in the magnetics supply chain to support its commitment toward automobile electrification. One aims to use recycled magnets to produce auxiliary motors for cars, the other to […]
Researchers at Toshiba Corporation have developed a new magnetic material that delivers major improvements in motor efficiency at minimum cost, and with the potential to win significant reductions in power consumption. It has been found to greatly boost motor energy conversion efficiency when it is used as the wedges in the motor, particularly in medium to large induction motors. The material can be installed at minimal cost with no need for design changes. […]
