Carpenter Electrification Joins the Future Electrical Machines Manufacturing Hub
Carpenter Technology Corporation has joined the Future Electrical Machines Manufacturing (FEMM) Hub as a new industrial partner. FEMM Hub strives to put UK manufacturing at the forefront of the electrification revolution and we join the initial group of 15 industrial partners including Rolls-Royce, GKN Aerospace, Airbus, Siemens Gamesa, ZF Group, Dyson, Hoganas, UTC, Protean, McLaren, Romax, Lanner, HVMC, and National Physical Laboratories and Aerospace Technology Institute.
Carpenter Technology brings our soft magnetic expertise in high-performance machine applications that require both high power density and ultra-high efficiency. This newly established partnership will particularly benefit FEMM's Grand Challenge Project 2.1, “From nominal core properties to in-service performance,” given its focus on developing processes and modelling of Cobalt-Iron-based cores and stacks for high-performance electrical machines.
Commenting on the new partnership, FEMM Hub Director Professor Geraint Jewell said, “We are delighted to welcome Carpenter Technology to the Hub. They bring world-class expertise in the manufacture of high-performance soft magnetic materials and will greatly strengthen our activities in the manufacture of high-performance electrical machine cores.”
Nir Vaks, the Global Director of Carpenter Technology’s Soft Magnetics Centre of Excellence, added, “Since we began operations over 130 years ago, Carpenter Technology has always looked for valued partnerships. Sharing our industry experience and collaborating with our peers is at the heart of what we believe in. As a global market leader, we’re excited to continue our tradition of innovation by becoming a part of the FEMM hub.”
