AM Permanent Magnets for Electric Motors

Researchers Fabrice Bernier and Jean-Michel Lamarre at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) have developed a method to produce permanent magnets for electric motors via cold spray metal additive manufacturing (AM). Currently, high-performance magnets used in electric motors are typically made using processes such as powder compaction for sintered magnets or injection molding for bonded magnets. In these processes...Read More
