Joining the Hub’s group of industrial partners, Motor Design Ltd brings expertise in the area of design and simulation of electric motors for high performance applications, where upfront simulation and optimisation is often crucial in meeting the challenging design requirements such as power density, cost and efficiency. In particular, this newly established partnership between Motor Design Ltd and the FEMM hub will bring dedicated motor design and simulation expertise into the hub with the provision of simulation software and potential to collaborate on industrial research.

These mutual beneficial partnerships allow the company to share its industrial and simulation expertise, whilst enabling us to stay at the forefront of electric machine technology and simulation tool development. We are very excited to develop new innovation collaborations and strengthen existing ones by becoming part of the FEMM Hub.”

Hub Director, Geraint Jewell added,

“We are delighted that Motor Design Ltd have joined the Hub as a partner. We have long-standing links with the company via collaborative research and as users of their MOTORCAD software. I am sure that the opportunity to extend these links into the manufacturing domain will bring dividends for us all.”
