A leading producer of electrical motors has asked our company to supply a sub-assembled motor acting as general contractor.
The customer had developed a pioneering electrical motor with an integrated oil cooling system based on a high-precision machined casting with 100% tightness requirement; moreover the customer wanted to supply the final sub-assembly from a sole partner leading the upstream supply chain.
In order to optimize the yield of the casting both in the molding and in the assembly phase, we collaborated with the customer in the product design, so as to reach a high casting quality, essential to a smooth and efficient machining process as well as a final rapid and safe assembly among our customer’s.
With the help of our casting simulation software we have identified a casting feeding system that has allowed us to build an efficient and compact mould.
As general contractors coordinating the entire development process, we have selected the suppliers for the components to be assembled (i.e. the machined extrusion and the gaskets), guaranteeing advantages both in terms of cost and high quality.
In the following we’ve designed and built the assembly station and, thanks to our experience in the field of die-casting and mechanical machining of electric motors, we’ve proactively solved the initial problems our customer met in keeping the dimensions after the assembly with the stator pack.
Benefits to our Customer
Our customer has been able to rely on a strategic partner who would act as a sole supplier for the semi-assembled parts, respecting the project times and managing the upstream supply chain.
Thanks to our consultancy both in the design and building phases, he was able to prevent possible critical issues in advance and optimize the product, confirming its innovative value on the market without compromising its quality.
