S-Wind wire forming for high-voltage motors
2018 - PACE Award Winner
What: Better wiring configurations for more compact motors
Innovation: Anticipating industry growth in hybrid powertrains and stop-start applications, BorgWarner invented a process for winding insulated wire for alternators and electric motors. The innovation produces smaller stators, which makes smaller motors more powerful and, in the process, reduces scrap rates as much as 75 percent and winding cycle time nearly 90 percent.
