ECM’s proprietary motor design and optimization software fundamentally changes the way motors are designed and manufactured. A cloud-based CAD/CAM software platform, PrintStator quickly transforms customer application requirements into unique, optimized PCB stator designs. PrintStator offers a reliable, cost-effective and rapid design-to-production cycle of the next generation motor and generator.
PrintStator eliminates human error and allows considerable flexibility in specifying optimization parameters and design restraints. Optimization algorithms embed patented design features and enable users to specify discrete motor characteristics for unique applications. A feedback loop feature of the software guarantees continuously improving algorithms.
With each unique PCB stator design, PrintStator automatically generates a Gerber file, an open ASCII vector format for 2D binary images ubiquitously utilized by the PCB manufacturing industry. This file specifies copper weight, layout for each layer, vias, solder mask, legend, and more. Leveraging the proven manufacturing process in the construction, PrintStator allows PCB stators to be printed worldwide.
WIth PrintStator, transforming customer requirements into a unique PCB stator motor design with exact operating parameters, immediately ready for manufacture, is only a matter of hours. PrintStator significantly reduces design cycle and motor development costs, enabling rapid prototyping for customer end-use applications.
