Equipmake And HiETA Developing New Motor With 20kW/kg Power Density With Additive Manufacturing

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Green Car Congress.

This is the introductory paragraph.

UK-based electrification company, Equipmake, has teamed up with additive manufacturing organization HiETA to develop a next-generation motor as part of a project grant-funded by Innovate UK.

Additive manufacturing is 3D-printing by another name. This has come to the fore in the COVID-19,  where schools, colleges and individuals have been using it to produce PPE.

Equipmake and HiETA are printing exotic alloys in intricate shapes to create the powerful motor.

Additive manufacturing is starting an amazing revolution. How many other common products can be redesigned to be more efficient and manufactured at lower cost.
