B. Hepworth to Launch Windshield Wiper Utalizing ECM’s PrintStator Motor CAD Platform

Electric motor design and software company ECM PCB Stator Tech has teamed up with B. Hepworth, the global leader in window wiping/wash systems, to develop a next-generation solution that integrates PCB Stator electric motors. This collaboration is set to revolutionize the performance and sustainability of windshield wiper products.

B. Hepworth will utilize ECM’s award-winning Motor CAD optimization platform, PrintStator, to commercialize premium-performance windshield wiper products. By integrating PCB Stator technology, these products will not only enhance performance but also reduce material usage, aligning with both companies’ commitments to efficiency and sustainability.

“Integrating ECM’s cutting-edge PCB Stator design solutions allows us to enhance performance while reducing material usage, paving the way for environmentally conscious progress in our products,”

Bert Thijssen, Head of Sales, Marketing, and Engineering at B. Hepworth

B. Hepworth has successfully begun production of a commercial windshield wiper product that will enter markets in the first quarter of 2025. This development marks a significant milestone in their journey of over 70 years in designing high-performance marine wiper systems. Their solutions are already trusted by the U.S. Navy fleet vessels and commercial yacht lines.

“ECM is excited to join forces with B. Hepworth to elevate the performance and innovation of superior wiper products for the machines that move the world,”

ECM CEO Brian Casey.

ECM pairs patented PCB Stator innovation with PrintStator Motor CAD to create electric machines that are smaller, quieter, and more energy and space-efficient. PCB Stator motors are up to 70% lighter than conventional motors, achieving efficiencies in excess of 90% and requiring just 20% of the raw materials.

This breakthrough technology is applicable to a broad range of industries, including Consumer Electronics, HVAC, E-Mobility, Medical, Robotics, and Aerospace.
