group order: 40mm dia,18slot laminations. Turned parts can now be ordered.


Ralph Okon (a.k.a. www.powerditto.de) is putting together a group order for 40mm. diameter, 18pole statorlaminations. A minimum order of 5000 laminations is needed to start a production run. Minimum order per person is 50. One 0.20mm lamination (NO20 iron quality) will cost 0.5. Flux ring and frontplates will probably also be available by then. Keep in mind, this is not a business for Ralph, he's in the business of curing people

Are they really only .2 mm thick?

I'm tempted to order some. Would you be able to ship some to the US?

Thanks,

The thinner the better: less (parasetic) eddy current losses, higher efficiency.

Wow.


So all 50 (not counting wrapping and maybe whatever separates them) add up to 1cm?

I may have missed it but what is the size of the inside hole? (for the bearing).

Ralph, have you considered a larger bore to take more robust bearings? I'm interested in swinging larger props (20-24 inches) in scale planes and it appears to me that I would have to use an 8x12mm bearing on the 'bell' end. These are at the bottom of the load range. A 16 or 18mm bore would allow 7x14 or 8x16mm bearings which can handle significantly greater loads.
Your views? Regards, David.

Ok, I just ordered the minimum number because I just don't want
to be left out. This looks like a truly exciting project. Do I need to order more?

Can you give some more details about the motor you have in mind?
I'm not really technical so I'm looking for Power converted in a way
I can understand. Will swing XX x XX prop. Is equivalent to X spec. motor
Will fly X helicopter. What kind of maximum Watts?
When will cans be available? Will there be a tutorial for this specific motor?

Thanks for the info.

Oz
