Development of novel powder routes for the manufacture electrical drives and motors.
Additive Manufacture (sometimes referred to as 3D Printing) of metals is starting to become more widely accepted a technology for the production of critical structural components. There is also evidence that we can, through careful control of processing conditions, generate materials with site-specific properties e.g. controlling the magnetic behavior to make the material paramagnetic or ferromagnetic on demand. In this PhD within the MAPP Future Manufacturing Hub we will seek to build on these observations and develop novel; routes for manufacture of functioning electrical motors – looking at methods for developing and controlling magnetic and other material properties directly in the AM process.
