LORD and Scheugenpflug collaborate to scale up EV thermal designs

When EV manufacturers find a high-quality gap filler that maximizes battery performance, they don’t want to hit a snag with the application system. One of the fundamental challenges in designing an EV battery pack is the effective management of heat generated during the battery’s charge and discharge cycles. A basic principle of physics is that… Read more »

Comparing liquid-dispensed gap fillers and thermal pads in battery packs: WEBINAR

Heat generated in high-density automotive battery packs is often managed by connecting battery cells and/or modules to a heat sink via a thermal interface material (TIM). The TIMs promote heat conduction by displacing any air that resides within the large gaps and microscopic rough surfaces that exist between the substrates to be bridged. In practice, battery… Read more »

LORD Corporation debuts CoolTherm thermal management materials and services

LORD Corporation introduced CoolTherm, a new brand within the company’s leading portfolio of thermal management solutions and technical services. CoolTherm products deliver customized materials that can help electric and hybrid vehicle manufacturers worldwide manage heat issues and increase power density. “The evolution of LORD Thermal Management Materials to the CoolTherm brand will better define the… Read more »

LORD is developing a rotary band brake aimed at automotive thermal management systems

“Any product that uses less power and has high torque in a small package could be of interest to the EV space,” LORD’s Edward Conner told Charged. We were discussing the company’s electromagnetically actuated rotary band brake technology, and we naturally asked a lot of questions about its potential applications for EVs. The core of… Read more »

LORD Corporation builds on its work potting electric motors, reducing hot spots by up to 40%

In 2013, Shafigh Nategh completed his doctoral thesis on the thermal management of high-performance electrical machines at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, and by 2014, the results of his doctoral work had begun to pique the interest of some heavy hitters in the electric motor industry. For his thesis, Nategh designed… Read more »

Impregnating motors with thermal management materials to reduce hot spots

A doctoral candidate plucks a thermal management material out of LORD Corporation’s voluminous catalog, and one Ph.D. later, the EV world may have an exciting new boon for the efficiency of electric motors. Anyone working within the corporate world has probably been battered with the word “synergy” to the point of it being rendered meaningless…. Read more »
