PRLog - Nov. 29, 2012 - Persimmon Technologies Receives Second National Science Foundation Grant for the Development of Highly Efficient Electric Motor Technology

New funding allows for expansion of technology to significantly improve performance and lower costs of electric motors

Wakefield, MA, November 29, 2012 – Persimmon Technologies Corporation, a leading provider of motor technology and robotics for the semiconductor, solar, LED and FPD equipment markets, announced today that it received Phase II of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a novel soft magnetic material and fabrication process for magnetic circuits of electric machines, such as winding cores of electric motors.

The commercial potential of this project is to enable production of electric motors with improved performance and efficiency while reducing cost and material scrap associated with manufacturing of motor winding cores. Electric motors are used extensively in a growing number of applications, including robotics, industrial automation, electric vehicles, heating and air conditioning systems, appliances, medical devices, and military and space exploration applications. These markets drive an increasing demand for electric motors with improved performance, higher efficiency, and lower cost.

“We invented the Hybrid-Field motor technology to improve the performance of our robotics. However, the significant benefits of increased output, smaller size and lower cost make this technology attractive to many other markets. Considering the extensive use of electric motors in the $10B low voltage motor market, the disruptive change resulting from our proposed Hybrid-Field motor technology is expected to provide significant commercial and environmental benefits,” comments Michael Pippins, President and CEO, Persimmon Technology.
