Wavewinding stators

Our innovative 3D printing technology enables the production of wavewinding stators with closed grooves – the only one of its kind in the world.

Rethinking complex designs

The best of two worlds

Together with Schaeffler ELMOTEC STATOMAT, Additive Drives offers customers worldwide innovative winding technologies for an agile future. Both partners bring different aspects to this strong partnership.

As part of the global Schaeffler Special Machinery Network, ELMOTEC STATOMAT combines many years of experience in winding and insertion technology with outstanding expertise in industrialisation and automation. With its flexible and innovative manufacturing processes, Additive Drives enables the rapid production of prototypes and high-performance small series in the field of shaft winding.

The flat wire shaft winding has been specifically developed for electric mobility applications. Its compact design and high number of conductors in the slot make it ideal for high speed, high power density applications.

The benefits at a glance:

  • Compact design
  • High number of wire crossings
  • Fewer welding points for greater process reliability
  • Particularly suitable for stators with a high number of slots

Additive Drives supports customers in the development of new motor designs and new concepts for flat conductor structures. The innovative 3D printing technology enables not only the shortest possible implementation times, but also – and this is unique in the world – the production of stators with closed slots, which is particularly advantageous for high torques.

With a comprehensive portfolio of systems, Schaeffler ELMOTEC STATOMAT offers production solutions for a wide range of drive concepts in various industries, from automotive to mobile machinery, and supports customers with modular concepts in ramping up to high volume production.
