Electric motor manufacturer Infinitum has completed the acquisition of printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer Circuit Connect.
Circuit Connect has supplied Infinitum with PCB stators for more than five years. The acquisition will allow Infinitum to scale up its production of PCB stators and provide a framework for continuous volume growth.
Infinitum’s air core motors replace heavy iron found in traditional electric motors with a lightweight PCB stator. They are 50% smaller and lighter, use 66% less copper, and consume 10% less energy than standard iron core stator motors, according to the company. Their modular design allows the housing, rotors, and stators to be reused multiple times, giving parts a second and third life.
“Circuit Connect has worked side by side with us, advancing and improving how PCB stators are made. Their acquisition will help us ensure consistent delivery of stator components as we execute on our hypergrowth phase and scale up manufacturing to meet the demand for our motors,” said Ben Schuler, founder and CEO of Infinitum.
