ABB MOTION DRIVE PRODUCTS CHALLENGE
Innovative packaging and integration solutions
Revolutionizing Integrated Motor and Variable Frequency Drive Technology!
Are you passionate about Electronics Packaging and Integration? If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you to showcase your innovative ideas and make a significant impact in the world of motor and Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) technology. Welcome to the Power Density Challenge, where we invite you to reimagine the integration of VFD electronics into industrial motors while preserving or enhancing performance factors.
With a rich history of over 45 years in designing and manufacturing VFDs, the ABB Drive Products Division has established itself as a leader in innovation. By controlling the speed and torque of motors, we not only benefit the environment but also provide our customers with reduced energy consumption of up to 25% or more, along with extended equipment lifespan through minimized wear and tear. Delivering these advantages to our customers and making an impact on the environment is the driving force behind our passion. Now, we aspire to take it a step further by integrating VFD electronics directly into the motor, making all these benefits an integral part of the machine.
To achieve seamless integration of the drive into the motor…
…we need to explore disruptive approaches to packaging and integrating electronics without compromising their suitability for the industrial environment or their ability to meet high-reliability requirements (including temperature, vibration, and electromagnetic compatibility). Overcoming this challenge requires delving into higher efficiency and temperature-capable power electronics, reducing thermal interfaces, increasing electronics integration, ensuring the reliability of new devices, and implementing advanced thermal management methods. Success can come from individual solutions to these challenges, or by combining several solutions in a brilliant way.
We invite you to join us in innovating solutions for this integration challenge. Take part in our Power Density challenge on this website and embark on an exciting journey to transform the future of motor and VFD technology.
