Post-Assembly Magnetisation at Cenex LCV

Magnet Rotor Magnetisation Montage

Post-assembly magnetisation of permanent magnet rotors is the most cost effective and accurate way to produce these vital components for electric vehicle motors.  Bunting is promoting such post-assembly magnetising manufacturing techniques on stand C4-607 at the Cenex LCV Event (7-8 September, UTAC, Millbrook, UK). The Cenex LCV Event focuses on low carbon and fuel cell…

Replicating True Radial Arc and Ring Magnets with Pseudo-Radial Arcs and Rings

Halbach Array

The manufacture of anisotropic radially magnetised arcs and rings is significantly different to the production of diametrically magnetised rings and arcs. Radially aligned and magnetised anisotropic arcs and rings are only possible in fully dense sintered NdFeB and need a dedicated press tool and magnetising fixture and have a limited physical envelope (Max OD 85mm).…

Metal Recovery from Electric Vehicles

Electric Car

Mining the Urban Environment The anticipated global increase in production and consumption of electronic goods and electric vehicles puts a huge strain on raw material reserves. Subsequently, the focus has turned from mining raw materials to reclaiming, reusing and recycling secondary materials. This is known as ‘Mining the Urban Environment’. Magnetics Importance for Electric Vehicles…
