English manufacturer Brandauer secured £500,000 funding boost for clean transport project.
The company has been selected to be part of a new consortium led by tech company Saietta, which has won an Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) grant to fast-track production on new electric propulsion motors for use in all vehicles from scooters through to buses.
The unique Axial Flux Traction technology delivers class-leading performance at the price points required for mass market adoption and marks a step-change in how the sector can make electric vehicles go faster for longer.
Production specialists at the Birmingham-based firm will use their thin gauge stamping and progression toolmaking expertise to produce busbars and laminations for use in the state-of-the-art motors.
The APC research contract will enable Saietta to ramp up production capacity to 150,000 motors per annum and trigger the hiring of 150-250 highly skilled engineers in the first round of recruitment.
Saietta will work closely with Brandauer and The AEV Group, a specialist in the manufacture of electrical insulating resins, varnishes and compounds, on refining the process for core motor component manufacturing and motor assembly, thereby delivering a cost effective, highly automated production assembly process.
