Rotor magnet shaping technologies for permanent magnet electrical machines

Rotor magnet shaping technologies for permanent magnet electrical machines Engine torque ripple is essential for the comfort of vehicle passengers. Large torque ripple may result in a harsh driving experience. Moreover, additional noise and vibration are byproducts of torque ripple. The service life of the machine and attached components can be influenced by severe vibrations. [...]

Can 3D-Printed Magnets Replace Rare Earth Magnets?

Can 3D-Printed Magnets Replace Rare Earth Magnets? Additive manufacturing can turn everyday magnetic material into alternatives for expansive rare-earth magnets. Engineers at the Amess Laboratory’s Critical Materials Institute used laser 3D metal printing to turn permanent magnet material into an economical alternative to more expensive rare-earth neodymium iron boron (NdFeB) magnets. The researchers experimented with [...]

3D-printed Magnets: How can you produce a magnet with exactly the right magnetic field?

3D-printed Magnets: How can you produce a magnet with exactly the right magnetic field? Today, manufacturing strong magnets is no problem from a technical perspective. It is, however, difficult to produce a permanent magnet with a magnetic field of a specific pre-determined shape. That is, until now, thanks to the new solution devised at TU [...]

Reconfigurable 3D-printable Magnets

Reconfigurable 3D-printable Magnets with improved maximum energy product In conventional magnets, neodymium with added heavy rare-earths is used in order to induce high output and size reduction. But as deposits of heavy rare-earths such as dysprosium (Dy) and terbium (Tb) are disproportionately distributed, it is important to reduce the amount used due to supply issues [...]
