MOTOR – AMORPHOUS STATORS
The use of amorphous metal for motor stators has been studied for decades. While its low loss properties have been definitively proven to translate into extremely efficient motors incorporating amorphous stators, the development of an economically viable manufacturing process has been a challenge.
However, developments in recent years have shown promise in the cost arena and efforts to perfect a cost effective process are intensifying around the world. For example, Hitachi has announced an IE5 motor based on amorphous metal stator. Metglas stands ready to support serious development in the motor market and we welcome relevant information that we can post on Metglas.com.
