Stator carrier for electric motors
The stator is the immovable part of an electric motor. 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 carriers can be executed either as flow-formed components or as pots 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.
