Engineers are aware of the challenges that await them in the feasibility phase. Especially with customised inductive components, it often takes several attempts until the optimal solution is found. This is a case for the development team of the KUK Group, the leading manufacturer of customised coils and electronics.
Innovations in medical technology are not least related to advances in coil manufacturing. The micro coils or sensors required for many medical technology applications are becoming increasingly powerful, while at the same time requiring less space.
Just winding coils is usually not enough, further production steps are necessary until an equipment manufacturer obtains a functional component. KUK Group offers the entire package from coil production to the assembly of a complete motor from a single source. High flexibility and fast turnaround times are the biggest advantages for the customer.
Persistent supply chain disruptions are causing many companies to despair. That's where a quick set-up of series production for customised coil manufacturing is worth its weight in gold. However, the prerequisite for successful series production is optimal tools. At KUK Group, these are mostly manufactured internally as part of the in-house plant engineering.
When purchasing electronic components, you can purchase individual parts from separate suppliers. Another variant is so-called Modular Sourcing, in which you hand over the assembly of complete modules to a customer-specific coil manufacturer. This reduces the complexity in your supply chain.
Anyone who knows Lean as a production method is probably familiar with the benefits of Lean. But what is Lean actually? How can you use Lean to speed up business processes? Learn more about Lean management methods that KUK Group, as a leading manufacturer of coils and electronics, applies itself.
A well-functioning supply chain is one of the most important prerequisites for your successful business. If there are problems with your suppliers, this can, in the worst case, lead to a standstill in your own production. This must always be prevented by taking preventive measures!
Orthocyclic coils are characterised by a high copper fill factor (often approx. 70%), so that a comparatively high magnetic field is realised in the smallest possible space.
In coil production, the wire used plays a central role. While copper is undoubtedly the most commonly used conductor material, especially for customer-specific coil projects, it is also worthwhile to test alternative coil wire, depending on the application.
In coil production, the insulation of the wire has an influence on a wide variety of product properties such as application range, service life, costs or coil design. Wire insulation also has an effect on various factors during coil manufacturing, such as scrap or further processing. This article summarises the essential facts about wire insulation - and its effect on coil design - for engineers.
