Electric Motors: Coiled for Success
From a few grams to several kilos – electric motors come in a wide variety of sizes and have many applications. A single car today houses as many as 200 electric motors – from the windscreen wipers to the central locking system, and also increasingly in the main drive. The main component of every e-motor is a copper coil, like the ones that SMZ AG custom makes by the millions in a completely automated process at its plants in Würenlos.
