UK awards Electrified Automation £6 million to develop its motor manufacturing process

Electrified Automation, a robotic technology specialist based in England, has been awarded £6 million in government funding to develop its process for manufacturing electric motors. The grant was awarded through the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) Collaborative Research and Development program, which supports the development of innovative low- and zero-carbon automotive technology.

Electrified Automation is part of a consortium called PIMMS, which also includes Winman and Aspire Engineering. The PIMMS project’s purpose is to design manufacturing processes for high-volume electric motor production, including a software solution to automate all aspects of the manufacturing environment with improved data-gathering capability.

The PIMMS project aims to “remove the barriers that prevent OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers from achieving high-volume electric motor manufacturing, specifically in relation to coil winding, mechanical assembly and automated test solutions.”

Electrified Automation’s new Electric Motor Dyno combines state-of-the-art performance testing technology with advanced monitoring software.

“Supporting vital research and development in the UK, now more than ever, provides an opportunity to invest in transport decarbonisation as well as boost growth in the automotive sector,” said Ian Constance, Chief Executive at the APC. “The funding announced today furthers world-leading innovation in net-zero technology for the automotive sector and beyond. These projects are all collaborative by design, led by high-profile companies with innovative SMEs and academic partners, representing the best of UK industry.”
