/// Innovative Technologies for Electric Motors
SciMo electric motors are being built and used since the year 2013. Our motors can reach a peak power density of more than 17 kW/kg and a permanent power density of 10 kW/kg. The SciMo technology is suitable for all applications with highest demands for power density and efficiency. SciMo motors have been extensively tested in the Formula Student and proved highest quality standards.
/// Custom Inverter Solutions
SciMo is specialized on fast prototyping of custom inverter solution. We offer a fast and efficient inverter design process that goes a long with a quick adoption of the supporting mechanical hardware. More details to custom solution can be found here.
We are starting manufacturing the SY43 in small volume production. There are different configurations available. The high speed version has a maximum speed of 30.000 rpm. The weight is slighlty above 13 kg. Dependend of the type of coolant a peak power of 180 kW and continuous power of 100 kW can be achieved. The SY43 is ideally suited to be controlled by our ISI2 inverter.
The SY43 is a universal machine, that can be used in a wide range of applications.
Our customers appreciate us as a reliable and quality focussed partner. Our in-depth know-how for the production of milled parts as well as turned parts enables us to produce special parts for mechanical engineering in a high quality, precise and timely manner. Our CNC machining offers precision as well as standard parts, turned parts, semi-finished parts, gearings, shafts, rotors made of different materials like e.g. carbide, steel, aluminum.
SciMo is proud to announce that we have passed an in-depth set of assessments to achieve the honor of ISO-9001:2015 certification for our quality management system
ISO 9001:2015 is the most widely known and internationally accepted standard for quality management. This certification recognizes organizations with a quality management system that consistently provide services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.”
The ISO-9001:2015 standard ensures that the basis of our quality management system is continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.
We are certfied by the TÜV Hessen.
Middle of October we could finally move into our new office rooms. This gives as more space for our new employes and we can increase the number of test benches for 24/7 testing. We are now working on 280 qm.
Since the beginning of 2018, SciMo occupies a new hall in Karlsruhe Rheinhafen.
Besides the motor prototype construction and the electronic production, we are specially proud of our brand new 3-axis CNC-milling machine and the 5-axis CNC-rotating milling center, both of them from DMG Mori.
For the construction of the fully automated winding technology with the highest filling levels, SciMo´s grant from the State of Baden Württemberg has been extended.
We are very pleased about this extension!
For the TU Delft Hyperloopteam, SciMo cosntructed our very own overworked strong velvet motor. The motor has a power of 200 kW with only 11,5 kg weight. The corresponding converter adds only over 6 kg weight. Unfortunately we must settle for second place.
The Munich WARR-Team wins the SpaceX Hyperloop competition in August 2017 again after winning this competition already in August 2016. The Munich pod, powered by the SciMo could reach a maximum velocity of 201 mph within a 0.8 miles short track. Congratulation to this exceptional success!
After an intense season and a constant head-to-head race with the teams from Delft, Stuttgart and Zurich, the Formula Student team from Karlsruhe was able to make the first place in the world ranking list for the first time in the club history.
The KIT16e electric racing car is powered by four motors that were developed in cooperation with KaRaceIng.
SciMo receives the ‘exist’ funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy for the foundation of ‘SciMo – Elektrische Hochleistungsantriebe GmbH’.
Our customers expect and require the highest quality, reliability and functionality of our products. We as SciMo are aware of this responsibility.
Our employees are significantly involved in the implementation of these attributes. With their commitment and innovative strength, they are the driving force of our company.
The basis of our daily activities is a quality management system according to ISO 9001, which has been certified in 2019. Furthermore, cooperations with our customers and partners from the automotive industry support us in the continous improvement of our quality management to ensure highly reliable manufacturing processes for highest quality.
