Motor Factory - Design

Help user defining machines step by step

Home page view

The Motor Factory – DESIGN area is the first environment of Motor Factory.

It is composed of five main zones. This is the guided line to design your machine.

Motor Factory – DESIGN area view – Example for synchronous machine – Permanent magnets

Zone 1


Definition of general data of the machine depending on the considered type of machine

  • Topology with overall dimensions, No. slots, No. poles,
  • Housing, Frame, Fins and cooling circuit topologies and dimensions
  • Shaft, type, Bearings and dimensions

Zone 2


Access to the main functions to design the ROTOR and its corresponding subsets:

  • Magnet, Polarization

Zone 3


Access to the main functions to design the STATOR and its corresponding subsets:

  • Slot, Winding

Zone 4


Define external and internal cooling parameters

Convection, radiation, conductivity parameters and X-factors

Note: By default, accesses to External cooling and Internal cooling environments are locked.

External cooling is unlocked when a frame is defined (Housing / Frame environment)

Internal cooling is unlocked when a frame is defined (Machine / Housing / Frame environment) and a shaft with bearings are defined (Machine / Shaft / Bearing environment).

Zone 5


Area to select all the materials needed to build the machine, rotor, stator and the cooling

Zone 6


Visualization of the motor radial view. The winding (automatically defined) is shown.

Note: Graphic functions like export picture and zoom are available on this view by right clicking on mouse (right part of the panel).

See system functions, graphic management to get more information.
