Bmax, a provider of magnetic pulse systems and services for metal processing, showcased its technology at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, CES 2024, demonstrating to product developers how it can help them realize products they […]
Motor manufacturer Nidec has made significant expansions to its capabilities recently through two corporate acquisitions plus adding new manufacturing plants in India and Serbia. All involve various degrees of magnetic technology and add new dimensions to Nidec’s market presence. It has:
acquired Houma Armature, a motor and generator service company in the USA;
acquired Midori Precisions, a producer of potentiometers and encoders in Japan;
opened two new factories in Serbia to meet growing demand for automotive motors and inverters in Europe while establishing a center for a cluster of future manufacturing operations;
added a new manufacturing plant in India for producing e-bike motors.
In December, it held an opening ceremony for the new, second building of its existing factory in Neemrana, India where it will now manufacture drive motors for electric bikes with an output of 30kW or less. The existing factory produces automotive, appliance, commercial, and industrial motors. Global sales of electric two-wheel vehicles are expected to grow from 2.6 million units in 2020 to 13 million units in 2030. Nidec plans to tap into the demand by manufacturing 90,000 e-bike motors per month at the factory. […]
When it comes to designing and manufacturing alternators, perhaps no other company can match the dedication of Mecc Alte.

AMSC (American Superconductor Corporation) has entered into a delivery contract for approximately $8 million with Textron Systems for a pre-production High-Temperature Superconductor (HTS) Magnetic Influence Mine Countermeasure Payload System.
Unlike conventional hydropower which requires gravity drop and head pressure for effective operation, Atlanta-based Emrgy uses innovative twin turbines and permanent-magnet generators to produce electricity from water flowing through a channel – even if it […]
ThinGap has completed its latest large-size motor prototype, the TGO 385 for a commercial customer. The TGO 385 motor kit has an outer diameter of 385 mm (15 in.), and an axial height of 223 mm (9 in.), making it about the same volume as a 5-gallon bucket. The power output capability of the TGO 385 is estimated to be 100 kW or more depending on the application. […]
Qnergy, a specialist in applying magnet-powered Stirling engines for capturing methane to generate onsite power at remote oilfields, is being recognized in the prestigious Edison Awards competition for the innovation and invention of its CAP3Nano system. It supplies utility grade electricity via a novel Stirling engine generator that runs on raw, unprocessed gas to provide reliable remote power to drive and deliver compressed air pneumatics, while eliminating the venting of methane wellpads.
