AC Rotor Manufacturing
Electric Materials manufactures AC rotors in a state of the art production facility for many of the major mass transit systems around the world. Through the use of custom manufactured tooling and dedicated equipment, our experienced staff produces AC rotors of the highest quality. From the initial stacking operation for the core, through to the final dynamic balance operation, all steps are subjected to very stringent monitoring as part of our ISO 9001:2015 Quality Control Plan.
As a specialty copper mill, our high quality extruded shapes, rods, and bars are produced from billets we cast in-house. As a leading producer of custom and standard shaped copper extrusions, EM carries an extensive tooling inventory consisting of several thousand dies. However, if custom tooling is necessary, you can rely on our seasoned toolmakers to produce all required extrusion and draw dies in-house. We can provide a material Certificate of Compliance with your shipment, or if requested, we will conduct full metal tests for a minimal charge. We welcome the opportunity to review your copper extrusion requirements.
