Tempel Prototype Services Delivers High-Tech, Cost-Efficient Engineering Solutions

Posted on: Wed, February 01, 2017

From government regulations on energy efficiency standards to customers demanding more products that will lower their utility bills, companies trying to get their new product on the market or modify an existing one quickly and cost-efficiently may face a myriad of challenges. Tempel’s prototype services can help by offering world-class engineering support, unparalleled quality and a full range of technical and design services.  

Partnering with Companies to Produce High-Performing Products
As the world’s leading producer of magnetic laminations for motors, generators and transformers for more than 70 years, Tempel is one of the few companies worldwide that has the ability to partner with the customer on every step of their product launch timeline including the design, as well as the manufacturing and product testing phases straight through production. 

Core Prototype Services Help Make Tempel’s Services Unique
Customers can benefit from Tempel’s expertise in material properties, metallurgical analysis, material sourcing and annealing process, which enhance the electrical properties of laminations, providing the best material performance while minimizing costs.

Tempel’s prototypes use the same material as large volume production and part designs are evaluated by specialists for manufacturability and tolerance capabilities. Tempel has TS-16949 and ISO 9001 certified worldwide manufacturing locations in the U.S., China, Mexico, India and Canada, and is prepared to provide expert advice concerning optimization of design and material selection based on performance criteria.

Some of Tempel’s prototype services include:

State-of-the-Art Laser Cutting - Providing any quantity of parts that product development may require utilizing material thicknesses ranging from 0.004” (0.10mm) to 0.50” (12.7mm) and sizes up to 60” (1500mm) x 120” (3000mm).

Blanking capabilities - Including production of special design blanks for rotors and stators up to 48 inches [1220 mm] and segment laminations for large power generators. Automated and manual notching equipment is also available, which can stamp rotor and stator laminations concurrently, providing process and cost advantages. In addition, low-volume progressive stamping can be used for small production runs (mostly for automotive prototypes).

Core Assembly and Value Added Services - Offering precision MIG, TIG and Plasma arc welding, stack pinning, resistance welding of vent assemblies, deburring and recoating, aluminum bar insertion and brazing end rings on prototype rotor cores, rotor shaft insertion, stator slot insulation insertion, drilling, tapping, and mounting hardware. Tempel’s die-casting capabilities allow production of aluminum die-cast rotors to a wide variety of specifications with a high degree of precision. And, post die-casting processes include quenching, ID reaming and burnishing, and OD grinding.
