CWIEME Chicago 2017: Day 3 highlights
Exhibitors of the CWIEME Chicago show have said the expansion of EV and HEV markets worldwide is a positive development for the coil winding, electric motor and transformer manufacturing industry. Breakthrough technologies and new products were also highlighted during the show.
Welcome to the dawn of the digital transformer
The humble transformer is undergoing a digital evolution, having been introduced over 130 years ago, that will enable better analysis of power usage and unit lifespan. No matter how good a piece of technology is, there comes a time when it needs to evolve. The creation of the distribution transformer in the early 1880s was a technological marvel. For the first time, it allowed the high voltage flowing through the national grid to be safely a...
'Knowledge is power' at CWIEME Berlin 2017
Manufacturers from across the transformer, electric motor, generator, automotive, energy and consumer electronics sectors will travel to CWIEME Berlin this June to source new materials and components, network, and stay abreast of all the latest industry developments. Between the 20th-22nd June, the exhibition for coil winding, electric motor and transformer manufacturing will open its doors to more than 6,500 visitors from approximately 80 c...
CWIEME Chicago to exhibit soft magnetic alloy
To promote its new soft magnetic alloy CARTECH HYPOCORE, Carpenter Technology will exhibit at CWIEME Chicago. The product exhibits excellent soft magnetic properties compared to existing commercialised grades of non-grain oriented electrical steel, allowing customers to explore new motor and generator designs that improve efficiency and reduce size.
China joins global drive for transformer efficiency
The trend for high efficiency transformers has now spread to China, according to CEEIA, placing pressure on Chinese transformer manufacturers, as well as their electrical steel, cable and coil winding equipment suppliers to effectively balance performance with cost.
Copper-clad aluminium can reduce the weight of a transformer
Growing demand for highly-efficient yet lightweight transformers has opened up a new application for Wickeder Westfalenstahl’s proven cold-rolled cladding. When used in the coil winding, the company’s copper-clad aluminium can dramatically reduce the weight of a transformer without compromising on performance.
Distribution transformers to become a key component of smart grids
High-efficiency distribution transformers with on-load tap changers can help distribution network operators and owners of commercial distribution rings to secure supply in light of increasing voltage fluctuations from renewable energy generation. The growing popularity of wind and solar power is fundamentally changing the way distribution networks operate. Many traditional energy consumers – from businesses to homeowners – have now al...
ArcelorMittal speeds time to market with advanced analytics
ArcelorMittal has been known as a company that goes the extra mile regarding technical support for more than a decade but recent years have seen the electrical steel supplier accompany its customers even longer in the development of new electrical machines. The company is acting increasingly in a consultancy capacity to help customers improve the accuracy of their calculations and modelling and, therefore, reduce the number of prototypes required...
UL to launch accelerated thermal evaluation service at CWIEME Berlin
Safety test provider Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is launching a shorter 50-day electrical insulation system test programme for electric motors at the forthcoming CWIEME Berlin exhibition. This service responds to global demand from manufacturers for help getting products to market quicker without compromising on safety.
Winding technology boosts motor efficiency
As the world braces for ever more stringent regulations aimed at curbing carbon emissions, a winding technology promises to both increase motor efficiency and its power factor while using a surprisingly cost-effective method. Motor manufacturers are in a race to switch to more energy-efficient technologies to help countries reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as part of a global strategy to combat climate change.
New EU regulation on transformers
Transformer energy performance standards being introduced all around the world are spurring transformer manufacturers, as well as their electrical steel, cable and coil winding equipment suppliers, to rethink materials, designs and manufacturing methods in a bid to balance performance with cost.
Berlin winds up for coil winding & electrical manufacturing expo
On the 10-12th May CWIEME Berlin – the longest running exhibition of its kind – will celebrate its 21st anniversary over six halls at the Messe Berlin in Germany. As registration opens for 2016, organisers i2i Events Group are expecting another strong year for attendance from electrical product design, manufacturing, quality assurance, R&D and procurement professionals.
Electric motor future aligns with coil winding developments
Coil winding breakthroughs will help make electric cars cheaper to build, more efficient to operate and even better for the environment, says Konstantinos Laskaris, Chief Motor Designer, Tesla. As the market for plug-in electric cars expands globally, even as petrol prices remain low, increasing vehicle efficiency continues to be the top priority for manufacturers. Recent developments in regenerative braking, which captures a car’s kinetic ...
Global electrical manufacturing exhibition opens in Turkey
Following the success of its shows in Berlin, Chicago and Shanghai, the CWIEME brand is now adding a new exhibition to its portfolio. CWIEME Istanbul, held 18th to 20th November 2015, will be the only event dedicated to coil winding, electric motor and transformer manufacturing technologies in this growing region.
2016 U.S. DOE efficiency regulations will result in $12.9bn in Net present value
Speaking ahead of his forthcoming CWIEME Chicago seminar, Mahesh Sampat, Founder of EMS Consulting, reveals the main technical and market impacts of the impending U.S. Department of Energy efficiency regulations for distribution transformers.
UL1446 to incorporate more IEC standards
Trusted independent North American safety test provider Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is re-evaluating its standards to better support its increasingly international and globalised client base. These changes and more will be discussed in a seminar by UL at the forthcoming CWIEME Chicago exhibition.
CWIEME to host simulation software workshop to boost efficiency R&D
CWIEME Chicago, North America’s leading annual meeting place for the electrical manufacturing industries, will host an in-depth workshop with engineering simulation software developer Ansys to help manufacturers decrease time to market and limit materials consumption when meeting impending efficiency regulations.
Construction to be key electrical industry driver
Speaking ahead of his forthcoming CWIEME Chicago seminar, Timothy Gill, Deputy Chief Economist, NEMA, has revealed the construction sector as the new major growth driver in the North American electrical manufacturing industry. Despite having emerged from the Great Recession more than six years ago, growth in the US economy is still subdued, casting a shadow of uncertainty over the homegrown electrical manufacturers and component suppliers gather...
