Clients are often faced with increasing pressure to increase quality and throughput while decreasing costs on products already in full-rate production. With little to no experience manufacturing motor components, finding a solution to meet their continuous improvement objectives can be a significant challenge.With more than 50 years of experience manufacturing motors and motor components, Windings’ design and manufacturing engineers can be a valuable resource. Utilizing Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) Analysis, a subset of Windings’ Concurrent Engineering process, Windings’ engineering team can analyze competitor’s designs and identify opportunities for improvement such as feature integration to reduce part count, feature modification to simplify assembly and reduce defects, and material substitution to decrease cost.
In addition to analyzing part design, the engineering team can utilize Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) Analysis, to evaluate the client’s manufacturing process, including jigs, fixtures, tooling, and assembly methods to identify additional opportunities for improvement. Windings will provide all necessary documentation to support the full implementation of any proposed changes by the client. If necessary, Windings can provide the client with prototype parts for testing to confirm actual results before formal adoption.
Windings is 100% focused on providing custom electric motor solutions that are optimized, tested, and manufactured to client-specific application requirements. Our engineering team is comprised of design and manufacturing engineers having extensive experience in engineering magnetic rotor assemblies, wound stators, and complete motor assemblies. From performance and manufacturability optimization of existing designs to a complete engineering package from concept to production, Windings engineers have you covered.
One of the things that makes Windings unique is our stance on ownership of intellectual property. Unlike most motor manufacturers, Windings offers our clients the option to retain ownership of any unique intellectual property developed during the project, offering maximum flexibility for clients over the life of the product.
Windings has earned a strong reputation as a trusted partner by consistently delivering high-quality products and services that are optimized for the requirements of each application. To ensure the stringent requirements of the defense industry are met consistently, Windings’ Quality Management System (QMS) Certifications include ISO9 001:2015 / AS9100-D, ITAR Registration, and NADCAP Accreditation. In addition, Windings’ employs J-STD-001 Application Specialists and a J-STD-001 Certified Instructor to ensure the highest quality soldering operations.
