SciMo – Electric High Performance Motors

/// Innovative technologies for electric motors of the future

SciMo is creating high performance electric motors with highest efficiencies. The product area of SciMo is as well extended to services around electric motors like the electromagnetic design, mechanical calculations, CAD constructions and the manufacturing of prototype motors. The unique performance characteristics of our motors are reached via the key technologies of:

  • Copper fill factors above 80% using distributed windings
  • Innovative cooling concepts, such as indirect cooling of the copper windings

SciMo electric motors are being built and used since the year 2013. Our motors can reach a peak power density of more than 13 kW/kg and a permanent power density of 8 kW/kg. The SciMo technology is suitable for all applications with highest demands for power density and efficiency. SciMo motors have been extensively tested in the Formula Student and proved highest quality standards.

/// TU Munich wins again the Hyperloop competition 2017!

The Munich WARR-Team wins the SpaceX Hyperloop competition in August 2017 again after winning this competition already in August 2016. The Munich pod, powered by the SciMo SY31, could reach a maximum velocity of 201 mph within a 0.8 miles short track. This impressive run is shown here.  Congratulation to this exceptional success !

/// SciMo receives ‘Junge Innovatoren’ grant

SciMo is funded by the program ‘Junge Innovatoren’ of the state of Baden-Württemberg. The aim of the grant is to convert high-quality technologies and innovative processes into marketable products in order to preserve Baden-Württemberg as a technology region in the long term. Further information about the funding program can be found here.

/// KaRaceIng on Place 1 of the World Ranking List

After an intense season and a constant head-to-head race with the teams from Delft, Stuttgart and Zurich, the Formula Student team from Karlsruhe was able to make the first place in the world ranking list for the first time in the club history.

The KIT16e electric racing car is powered by four SciMo SY21 motors that were developed in cooperation with KaRaceIng.
