Bonding Lamination Stacks for Prototyping
When it comes to prototyping in the electrical motor and transformer manufacturing industry, bonding lamination stacks is a critical step that can significantly influence the performance and feasibility of the final product.
Prototyping does not typically require the volume of production that mass manufacturing does, allowing for more manual or semi-automated bonding processes.
The adhesive is applied with precision to ensure that each layer of the lamination stack bonds correctly without excess or insufficient adhesive. This may be done by hand or with precision equipment, depending on the complexity and size of the prototype.

Self-bonding coatings and motor lamination stacks Bonding Technology
The self-bonding coating program is an emerging method of lamination stacks. The self-bonding coating belongs to the ASTMA976 classification of organic resin coating type C3, and its coating principle and processing method are shown in the figure.
A self-bonding coating solution is applied on both sides of the electrical steel substrate, which is heated and baked in the production line to form an incompletely hardened semi-finished product.
This semi-finished product is rolled, slit, stamped, stacked, and fixed with clamps in the production line, and then heated and pressurized for curing.
The cured and bonded motor core avoids the stresses and changes in iron loss caused by welding and riveting of electrical steel, improves the motor’s overall performance, and reduces the vibration and noise generated by the rotation of the core. Therefore, self-bonding electrical steel is very suitable for high-frequency and high-speed motors.
Typical process of Motor bonding Lamination
We apply high-temperature Glue/Epoxy Adhesive on the stators to glue the stator sheet together and ensure they will not be lost. It does not need any interlock point and welding so it can lower the iron loss to a maximum level. Here’s a breakdown of each step:
Punching or Wire Cutting Silicon Steel Sheets
The process begins with shaping the silicon steel sheet. This can be achieved through punching, which efficiently stamps out the desired shape, or EDM wire cutting, a precise method that uses electrical discharges to cut the silicon steel sheet.
Once shaped, the sheet undergoes a thorough cleaning to remove any burrs or debris. This step is crucial to ensure a smooth surface, essential for the subsequent bonding process.
Designing the Lamination Fixture
A specialized lamination fixture is designed to hold the sheets in place. This fixture is tailored to accommodate the specific geometry of the stator, ensuring that the sheets are aligned correctly during the bonding phase.
The sheets are then bonded together using high-temperature glue or epoxy. The adhesive is applied, and the sheets are stacked to the designed stator height, ensuring uniformity and strength in the bond.
After bonding lamination stacks, the stator is baked. This step is critical as it cures the glue, solidifying the bond. The baking is done at least twice to ensure the glue is completely hardened and the bond is secure.
The final step is a comprehensive inspection. This quality control measure checks for any defects in the bonding process, ensuring that the stator meets all the required specifications and standards for performance and safety.
Applications of Glue Bonding Lamination Stacks
This method proves indispensable for thin metal sheet laminate products, which are paramount in crafting motor cores for hybrid car drives. These high-efficiency motor cores, made possible through glue bonding, are pivotal in driving the hybrid automotive industry forward.
Beyond this, the technology also extends its reach to electronic components. Solenoids and reactors, for instance, benefit immensely from the precision and durability offered by glue-bonded assemblies.
Other Motor Laminations Assembly Process
Stator Winding Process
Stator winding is a fundamental component of electric motors, playing a pivotal role in the conversion of electrical energy into mechanical energy. Essentially, it consists of coils that, when energized, produce a rotating magnetic field, driving the motor’s operation. The precision and quality of stator winding directly influence the motor’s efficiency, torque, and overall performance.
We provide comprehensive stator winding services, catering to a wide range of motor types and applications. Whether you’re looking for a solution for a small-scale project or a large industrial motor, our expertise guarantees optimal performance and longevity.
Epoxy Powder Coating for Electric Motor Core

Injection Molding for motor lamination stacks
Injection molding insulation for motor stators is a specialized process used to create insulation layers that protect the windings of a motor stator.
This technique involves injecting a thermosetting resin or thermoplastic material into a mold cavity, which is then cured or cooled to form a solid insulation layer.
The injection molding process allows for precise and uniform insulation thickness, ensuring optimal electrical insulation properties. The insulation layer serves to prevent electrical shorts, reduce energy losses, and enhance the overall performance and reliability of the motor stator.
Electrophoretic Coating/Deposition for Motor lamination stacks
In motor applications exposed to harsh environments, stator core laminations are prone to rust. To combat this, an electrophoretic deposition coating is essential. This process applies a protective layer ranging from 0.01mm to 0.025mm in thickness to the laminations.
Leverage our expertise in stator corrosion protection to enhance your design with optimal rust-proof capabilities.
Quality control for Bonded lamination stacks
Quality control begins with the inspection of raw materials. The silicon steel sheets used for laminations must meet specific standards for purity, thickness, and electrical properties.
The adhesive selected for bonding should also be tested for consistency and performance characteristics.
Check the dimensions of the lamination stack to ensure they meet design specifications.
Plus, the bonded stacks undergo mechanical testing to assess the strength of the bond. This can include peel tests, shear tests, and tensile tests.
Failure analysis and aging resistance test for self-bonded motor cores: high and low-temperature oil resistance failure analysis, motor core iron loss detection, etc.
Benefits of Motor Bonding laminations
In the intricate world of motor assembly, the method chosen for bonding stator and rotor laminations can significantly influence the motor’s overall performance. Self-bonding, in particular, has emerged as a preferred choice for many manufacturers, and for good reasons.
Keeps the vibration at rotation low
One of the standout benefits of glue bonding is its ability to minimize vibrations during rotation. This not only ensures a smoother operation but also reduces wear and tear on the motor components, leading to a more stable performance.
Enhanced durability and longevity
Glue bonding enhances the motor’s cooling efficiency. With better heat dissipation, motors can operate for extended periods without overheating, thereby prolonging their lifespan.
Smooth stacking reduces wind noise
A motor that operates quietly is always desirable. Thanks to the smooth stacking achieved through glue bonding, wind noise is significantly reduced, making for a quieter motor operation.
Reduce iron loss and heat generation
Excessive heat can be detrimental to motor performance. Glue bonding ensures minimal iron loss, which in turn keeps heat generation in check, safeguarding the motor from potential damage.
Suitable for stacking thin/hard materials
Traditional bonding methods might struggle with thin or hard materials. However, glue bonding excels in this area, offering a reliable solution for stacking even the most challenging materials.
Improved motor efficiency
At the heart of it all, the primary goal is to achieve optimal motor efficiency. Glue bonding facilitates this by ensuring a tight bond between the stator and rotor, leading to enhanced motor performance and reduced energy consumption.
