Stator carrier for electric motors
The core assemblies of the stator are installed in the stator carrier; for this reason, the inner side has continuous fins. Such a component can be produced using the flow forming process, with a tube as the preform. The stator carrier can be executed either as a flow-formed component or as a pot with internal fins; it is then possible to flow form a hub to permit mounting of the rotor bearing.
A disc or a forged tube can be used as the preform; the result is a homogeneous component without any welds.
