The Institution of Engineering and Technology hosted a webinar introducing the work of the Future Electrical Machines Manufacturing (FEMM) Hub, with speakers Geraint Jewell and Jiabin Wang from the University of Sheffield.
The UKRI-funded FEMM Hub will address key manufacturing challenges in the production of high integrity and high value electrical machines for the aerospace, energy, high value automotive and premium consumer sectors.
Through delivering world-class manufacturing research and innovation, the Hub will assist UK manufacturing to capture significant value in the electrical machine supply chain, improve UK industrial productivity and deliver the environmental benefits and cleaner growth at the heart of the UK’s industrial strategy.
At the webinar, the Hub's two grand challenge themes were discussed:
Manufacturing-led innovation in electrical machines
Process innovation, monitoring and simulation.
