Engineers in China will be trained to service vehicles based on the "Slavyanka" technology

22 June 2022

Jilin University Qingdao Auto Institute EV Center (Weihai) will provide the online training with the participation of the "Sovelmash" partner and head of ASPP Weihai Victor Arestov. All the costs are to be covered by the Chinese government. 

On the basis of the first education they have already completed, engineers from different countries will be trained to operate and service electric cars and electric motorcycles based on "Slavyanka". They will also learn how to prepare conversion kits for converting gasoline vehicles to electric vehicles by applying the combined winding technology. Following the training, specialists will receive official certificates.

As part of the bilateral government cooperation arrangement, LOJO-EV electric cars will soon be shipped from China to Macedonia, and engineers from that country will be trained to service them. The vehicles have obtained the European certificate and can be used in all European countries, including the UK.

The training program will expand the network of future service centers around the world where the "Slavyanka" based equipment can be serviced. Without this, large-scale implementation of the technology is impossible.

Victor Arestov noted another benefit of the program for "Sovelmash": "It's advertising and promotion. We have been spotted, and not at the level of forum members and garage repairs. It's worth a lot. China has already stopped being resistant to the fact that the project is not Victor's, it is a Russian project... Some people are doubtful and claim that the technology is being "leaked". But the technology has been "leaked" in this way through hundreds of licensees. These are the steps of entering the markets. Without the risk of falling, a child will still be sitting and will not master the skill of walking. But he or she gets up and goes on, even knocking the knees and the nose sometimes." 

To complete the training, an engineer must apply to an educational institution or governmental agency in his or her country, since the educational program is implemented at the intergovernmental level.


Hub motor: innovative technology for casting the rotor with aluminum in action

22 June 2022

Many people asked, "Where's the hub motor, why did you stop working with it?" 

Our answer: the hub motor has not been abandoned, we are actively working with it, including the patenting and other areas.

On June 21, the first successful casting of the hub motor rotor with aluminum took place. 

For your reference:

Size 318 hub motor ("Kolobok") has been subjected to many tests: its winding was poured with water at the exhibitions in Monaco, it was accelerated to enormous speeds while riding in the rain, in the mud, experiments on motocross tracks were carried out. And what's important - the hub motor still operates thanks to the knowledge and excellent expertise of the "Sovelmash" specialists. 

Earlier, the "Sovelmash" engineers designed the world's first induction hub motor. It is based on the "Slavyanka" combined winding technology and this was one of the options for implementing the technology. The engineers demonstrated the feasibility of the technology, its consistency and a number of advantages. The rotor for it consisted of copper and electrical steel plates and was made using quite expensive technology. 

Thanks to the work that was carried out on the leased premises, particularly in the casting area, the "Sovelmash" specialists have fine-tuned the technology of casting the short-circuited rotors with aluminum. 
This has been demonstrated, as many of you have already seen, with built-in motors for power tools:

🔹A universal drive for power tools and household appliances has been created | "Duyunov's motors" project
🔹Will Russia master import substitution in 2022 FAST and EFFICIENTLY? Are there ready-made solutions?

After that, thanks to the equipment placed on the leased premises, the "Sovelmash" specialists were able to cast the rotor made of sections with aluminum using the mass production technology. 

Stay tuned for our updates - in the future we'll tell you about our further work with the hub motor and more.
