Making of: Electric Motors


Electric motors

Electric motors power an amazing number of devices nowadays. From as small as those in our household appliances and disc drives to as large as those used in ship propulsion – electric motors are all around us.

The processes of manufacturing electric motors vary depending on the type and purpose of the motor, but there are certain operations which to an extent exist in all of them and which can benefit from the use of adhesives and sealants. The very core of electric motor consists of cylindrical elements. They can be assembled much more easily by using retaining compounds. Instead of using pre-formed gaskets to seal end plate to housing, cover to junction box or housing to junction box, chemical gasketing materials can be used (from anaerobic, silicone or silan-modified polymer technologies – depending on specific application). This saves you from keeping stock of various sized rubber gaskets and provides a solution in case of flame-proof electric motors where rubber gaskets are not allowed.

By using adhesives to lock and seal the threaded fasteners and joints you can reduce the number of parts used, prevent corrosion and improve clamp load. You can use them to encapsulate parts and protect them from environmental effects as well as for numerous little applications such as reinforcing wires or electrical connections, tacking and even temporary fixing of parts during manufacturing process.
