ECM PCB Stator Tech wraps up an extraordinary 2023 with 11 distinctions from prominent technology competitions, including recognition for ECM’s contribution to energy sustainability.

As a pioneer, ECM seamlessly integrates its patented PCB Stator innovation with the PrintStator Motor CAD platform, usher in a new era of electric machines with benefits of reduced size, quieter operation, and enhanced energy and space efficiency.

To offer some specifics, motors designed with PrintStator are up to 70% lighter than conventional options, boasting efficiencies in the mid-90s while utilizing just 20% of the raw materials. To extend these benefits on a larger scale, ECM will launch PrintStator as a public Software as a Service (SaaS) product at CES 2024.

Throughout 2023, ECM’s innovation and business model received acclaim from judges across five technology awards programs. The Boston-based startup secured victories and recognition in various categories, solidifying its position as an industry leader. 

ECM’s CEO, Brian Casey, expressed gratitude for the prestigious awards, emphasizing the transformative potential of PrintStator in positively disrupting electric motor design for the 21st century.

ECM is grateful to receive recognition from so many prestigious corners for our PrintStator Motor CAD software and integrated PCB Stator technology.

Though often overlooked, electrically powered machines are an integral component to billions of commercial and industrial systems. That’s why electric motor design and performance are in need of a 21st century makeover. PrintStator delivers that transformation to the public via SaaS. These 11 award distinctions validate that model,
