Whether pedelecs, e-scooters or drones - all these forms of mobility use an electric motor to drive them. In order to make the motors more efficient, researchers at Fraunhofer IFAM have developed a casting process that can be used to produce lightweight windings from aluminum and a higher groove filling factor.
Established companies rarely seek new growth through new services. It is precisely here that traditional companies and start-ups can successfully learn from each other, as examples from the metal industry show convincingly.
The Lost Foam casting process is based on the American full-mold casting process, which has been known since the 1950s. This approach made it possible to produce complex components suitable for mass production in one processing step.
