Overview

The "electrification" of everything is driving increased development in the area of permanent magnet motors. Engineering teams are being challenged to create designs with lower weight and decrease footprint, while maintaining or increasing their performance.

This presentation will allow engineers of all functions to understand not only what permanent magnet materials are commercially available, but also best practices for designing manufacturing friendly parts. Additionally, the presentation will focus on critical design considerations for creating rotor assemblies used in electric motors.

The first section of this presentation will focus on what permanent magnet materials are commercially available and compare the tradeoffs in properties from one material to the next. It will also summarize best-practice design considerations for engineers trying to create manufacturing friendly magnet components. Attendees will learn about the capabilities of common manufacturing methods to shape magnets and their corresponding limitations.

In the final section of this webinar, attendees will learn about the critical design considerations for creating rotor assemblies used in electric motors. The presentation will focus on the options for bonding magnets to rotor shafts, sleeving rotors for mechanical retention, balancing needs and temperature considerations for material selection.

Attendees will leave this webinar with a firm understanding of what is required to design a manufacturing friendly permanent magnet rotor assembly. They will also gain insights on overcoming common design challenges as well as best practices for avoiding common mistakes in magnet and rotor designs.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand commercially available permanent magnet materials
