Next-generation electric motors and electromagnetic devices
Elmworks is developing additive manufacturing for electric motors, the single largest user of electricity in the U.S. and a critical component in decarbonized infrastructure. This technology can transform the design and manufacturing of electromagnetics from a dark art to a turnkey process and produce motors with increased performance at lower cost.
Elmworks is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Small Business Innovation Research program. This program focuses on high-risk, high-impact technologies, helping startups and small businesses transform their ideas into marketable products and services.
Elmworks is also a member of the Activate entrepreneurial fellowship program, which supports scientists and engineers to invent a more sustainable infrastructure for our global economy, across climate and energy, advanced manufacturing, microelectronics, and beyond.
