Why put a copper cage rotor into your electrical traction motors and other embedded devices ?
Just replacing the aluminium rotor of an induction motor by a copper cage rotor improves the motor performance.
Energy losses in electrical systems are mainly caused by the electrical resistance of conductive materials that are used. Thanks to copper’s good conductivity (97% IACS +/- 3%), energy efficiency improves. FAVI’s rotor technology gives major advantages for the improvement of motor efficiency.
Integrated into an asynchronous motor, the FAVI copper cage rotor increases the power/weight ratio, up to 4 kW per kg of an on-board motor.
In the automotive industry, car manufacturers are always looking to maximize power from the smallest possible size of motor. This weight saving, produces a higher mileage/kilometer ratio per electrical recharge.
An induction motor equipped with the ‘FAVI DIE-CAST COPPER ROTOR’ achieves better than 90% efficiency.
Thanks to its optimized design and ease of industrialization, the production costs of this motor are significantly lower than those of a permanent-magnet motor.
Electrical asynchronous motors have been used in many applications in the railway transport industry for years (e.g tramways, subways, high-speed trains, TGV). It is a proven solution in terms of reliability and lifespan (no efficiency loss of the motor over time). Integrating a FAVI copper cage rotor into an asynchronous motor increases the motor efficiency without compromising its robustness.
As an industrial subcontractor, we study, industrialize, and produce die-cast copper rotors.
Typical projects are :
These innovations result from proactive meetings, listening to our partners at their centers of excellence e.g. technical centers, professional schools and universities.
As your industrial development Partner, our Design team proposes the optimization of your product, through die-casting, machining and assembling. All requirements and quality issues relating to the product and manufacturing process are taken into account, to guarantee top product preformance from Day 1 of production.
Our Design office is experienced in the latest STATE OF THE ART Equipment :
Our test laboratory validates products and materials :
FAVI has been recognized in July 2015 as being able to carry out tests and provide results according to the car manufacturers’ required standards. This is known as ‘Self-Certification’.
Our industrial departement manages, develops and uses ‘Best Practise’ production and quality methods.
We manufacture foundry, cutting tools, machining, assembly machines and control devices. A real advantage for industrializing your products giving continuous improvement throughout the manufacturing process.
Our core industry for 60 years : pressure die casting.
It is through this expertise that we are able to inject and control pure copper at 1300°C.
Up to now, we have produced more than 1,5 million die-cast copper rotors, whilst carrying out the entire manufacturing process : design, tooling, die-casting and machining.
At FAVI, our challenge is to place our customers at the centre of attention for each one of our employees, who organize production in our autonomous and independant mini-factories. Each mini-factory is dedicated to one customer or product and piloted by a team leader. All back-up services, such as Sales, QC and maintenance are closely integrated to favour reactivity, proactivity and communication.
FAVI will exhibit to the 2018 edition of the ALUMINIUM fair, from October 9 to 11, in Düsseldorf, Germany. More information here.
