MTC secures award for innovation

A team of engineers from the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) has scooped a top innovation award for the development of a high-powered electric motor which is smaller and lighter. The Future Electric Motor Systems aerospace motor project, known as FEMS3, has won the 2022 3D Pioneers Challenge award. MTC’s team used additive manufacturing technology to combine three machined components, eight fasteners and three O-rings into a single part. The result was a motor which has a reduction in mass of more than 65%, is much simpler to assemble and has eliminated multiple seals.
