We are a UK manufacturer and designer of compact electric motors and motor gearboxes providing complete solutions for motion control applications. The company is focused on four strategic areas:
PMW Dynamics is Europe’s largest manufacturer of printed motors. Founded in 1963 as Printed Motors Limited (PML) we are the original European manufacturer of pancake motors. PMW's electric motors and motor gearboxes are used in highly demanding applications worldwide to provide precision motion control. All our electric motors can be customised to suit clients’ precise requirements.
We are happy to share some of our successful projects
Motor to power the PHASA-35 High Altitude, Long Endurance Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (HALE UAV)
Developed by PMW
PHASA-35, a high altitude, long endurance unmanned aerial vehicle (HALE UAV) with twin bespoke electric motors directly driving high altitude propellers
The goal of the aircraft is to provide capabilities not available from existing aerospace platforms, such as a low cost, persistent service for the delivery of 5G networks.
Providing the motors for an all electric aircraft intended to say aloft for a year at a time was the challenge offered to specialist motor design and manufacturer PMW by the aircraft’s designers Prismatic.
To meet Prismatic’s demanding specifications and deadline, PMW were selected to design a cutting edge motor, drive and commutation system that would not overheat either at take off or during the fast climb necessary to reach the 65,000 feet cruising altitude in the limited time available.
To do this the design team needed to quickly gain a precise understanding of the thermal performance required for the motor at all altitudes, so that they could model the specific motor duty points.
