UK motor manufacturer enters mining market | Engine + Powertrain Technology International – Engine Technology International

UK-based electric motor specialist Equipmake has recently launched a range of electric motors for mining equipment vehicles, which it claims bring major benefits in terms of power density, low running costs reduced emissions.

Based in Norfolk, Equipmake primarily provides EV technology including electric motors, power electronic systems complete EV drivetrains to automotive OEMs specialist supercar manufacturers. The company notes that, although the mining industry has traditionally been reliant on diesel power, the switch to electric is gathering pace, as mining companies realize the benefits of reduced emissions, as well as lower vehicle machinery operating costs.

The company believes its APM motors to be the most power dense in global series production, use technology born out of managing director Ian Foley’s career in top-level motorsport. They are permanent magnet motors that use a spoke architecture (so called because the magnets are arranged like the spokes of a wheel) to improve cooling efficiency. This in turn improves power density, the construction method is also ideally suited to series production, helping to reduce costs.

Foley noted, “We are experiencing huge dem from the mining industry as manufacturers see the benefits that electrified vehicles can bring, from reduced emissions noise to increased efficiency lower running costs. Our electric motors are extremely compact lightweight yet powerful, which can play a huge role in improving
