3D-printed hairpin windings reduce manufacturing times of electric traction motors to one month.
From electrified power take-offs to traction drives
Hairpins are a new technology in the electric motor field. Rectangular copper rods replace wound copper wires. The process is easier to automate than conventionally wound motors and is particularly popular in the automotive sector because of the significantly reduced manufacturing times.
Thanks to our rapid prototype development approach, we can provide real-time feedback of the measurement results produced through simulations, ensuring the required functional behaviour and improving quality assurance.
Geometric design and material parameters are in line with conventional manufacturing, which creates the conditions for meaningful prototyping.
