PRINTSTATOR :
NEXT GENERATION CLIENT SOFTWARE PLATFORM

ECM’s proprietary motor design and optimization software fundamentally changes the way motors are designed and manufactured.

Optimization

PrintStator’s optimization algorithms quickly transform customer supplied requirements into an optimized motor design that is ready for prototyping and large-scale production.

Smart Manufacturing

PrintStator automatically and uniquely generates Gerber files, an open ASCII vector format for 2D binary images, which are ubiquitously utilized by the PCB manufacturing industry to specify copper weight, layout for each layer, vias, solder mask, legend, etc.

Rapid Design Cycle

PrintStator significantly reduces design cycle and motor development costs, enabling rapid prototyping for customer end-use applications.

 

“Our powerfully innovative software platform — PrintStator — guides the design and manufacture of the groundbreaking motor technology.”

- Steve Shaw, PhD
Chief Technology Officer, ECM

 

ECM PLATFORM ADVANTAGES

ECM technology delivers superior efficiency at reduced cost to the axial gap motor industry.

 

HIGH EFFICIENCY
MOTORS


Typical designs utilizing our patented technology range in efficiency from the low to mid 90’s.

 

QUALITY
OF MOTION


With no steel in the stator, all cogging is eliminated (i.e. no flux reversals).

 

SUPERIOR
TORQUE DENSITY


ECM machines produce the same torque with less than half the mass (Nm/kg) of many competing designs.

 

EASY TO
MANUFACTURE


ECM motors consist of a housing unit and rare earth magnets on each side of a PCB manufactured stator. Design files are transferred directly to the PCB manufacturer using proprietary software.

COMPUTER-AIDED
DESIGN & OPTIMIZATION MOTORS


CM’s proprietary software automatically and effortlessly translates ECM design specifications to production-ready drawings (Gerber files) that can be manufactured worldwide.

 

POWER ELECTRONICS
INTEGRATION


ECM motors (like all BLDC motors) require the use of power electronics to affect variable speed control. ECM designs also integrate seamlessly with the latest control topologies.

ECM UTILIZES PATENTED, PCB-BASED STATOR TECHNOLOGY IN AN INNOVATIVE MOTOR DESIGN PLATFORM.

ECM’s patented technology for axial gap motors eliminates the need for wire winding and iron laminations used in conventional motors by embedding copper-etched conductors into a multi-layered printed circuit board to form a stator that works in conjunction with permanent magnets.
