Motor Design

The Magnequench Applications Team works with magnet users to optimize their motor design by translating motor performance requirements into a magnetic property, identifying the cost optimized MQP™ powder grade, and then determining the lowest cost magnet design.

Magnequench technology center is equipped with the latest equipment to perform motor benchmarking.

Few key factors that are considered to benchmark any specific motor

Once the required targets are identified and agreed upon, Magnequench Applications Team will work toward the following targets:

  • Selecting and/or Developing best magnetic materials, including new MQP™ grades and/or new compound (MQEP™) variants
  • Conceptualizing the optimal magnet shape and manufacturing method based on the industry’s best practices

Motor performance is simulated using virtual magnetization of the magnet. After achieving desired results in the simulation, magnetization fixtures are then designed and fabricated accordingly to magnetize physical magnets which are then used to evaluate the final motor performance.

Magnet samples are manufactured by Magnequench, which ensures timely responses and seamless communication.

The Magnequench Application Team uses the best simulation tools available in the industry:

  • SPEED- For analytical design and analysis of  permanent magnet brushed and brushless motors.
  • Vector Fields Opera –For 2D and 3D electromagnetic simulation and Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Motor-CAD –For thermal analysis ofelectric motors and electromagnetic analysis ofpermanent magnet brushless motors.
  • SOLIDWORKS – For 3D mechanical computer-aided design (CAD)
  • AutoCad- For 2D mechanical design

The Magnequench technology center is equipped with four computer controlled dynamometers, each having electronic power analysis capability. This equipment enables us to evaluate the performance of a motor  whether it is a commercially available product or a prototype that has been designed and built by the Magnequench Technical Center.
