Advanced air mobility is one of the most unique, groundbreaking technologies emerging in today’s aviation industry. As it has evolved Windings has been at the forefront, assisting major players in electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) and electric conventional take-off and landing (eCTOL) create high performance motors with highly distinctive requirements. This presents us with the unique opportunity of assisting eVTOL companies and eCTOL companies to achieve their challenging goal of electric airplane flight, thanks to our revolutionary magnet retention technology. Windings ability to partner with customers to understand their novel demands, and create custom components for critical applications and experience in the aerospace industry made us the perfect fit to help companies exploring advanced air mobility to bring their vision to fruition.
Electric Airplane Flight
Electric airplane flight has been a possibility since the 70’s, but only in the 21st century has the industry begun to look heavily at the possibility for commercial use. With the emergence of the eVTOL, several companies began manufacturing prototypes for the possibility of commercial use. This has garnered the attention of major airline corporations for the possibility of achieving net zero emissions. Through electric flight, it is believed that CO2e emissions could be cut down anywhere between 441 and 792 million tones of CO2/year, a reduction of 49% - 88%. With these airlines pushing for net zero emissions by 2050, Windings custom electric motors can assist companies looking to produce the these highly innovative solutions in air travel.
Some of the top players in this cutting-edge industry have found the solutions they were unable to achieve in electromagnetics through Windings. Our specializations in custom high-quality, high-performance motors has helped eVTOL Companies produce some of the first successful flights in advanced air mobility. With our revolutionary magnet retention through carbon fiber spun rotors, our customers were able to reduce magnet lift and exceed their targeted RPM’s.
Unmanned Aerial Mobility
Unmanned aerial mobility (UAM), or drones, represents another exciting frontier in advanced air mobility. We have already seen the influence drones have had in our lives, but as the industry grows, the possibility of their use grows with them. The utilization of this application will certainly affect the transportation of goods, people, and will even have a significant impact on services industries. As this industry is relatively new, the industry demands a high quality custom product, specifically designed and produced for each unique machine. Windings continues to play a key role in UAM development, providing electromagnetic components for safe and reliable operation. Our high power, lightweight motors provide the lift and torque that exceeds far beyond our customers’ expectations.
