HVEMS: High Volume E-Machines Manufacturing Supply

Project Overview

The HVEMS (High Volume E-Machines Manufacturing Supply) project was led by Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and involved a number of partners including Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), Tata Steel, Grainger & Worrall, Midland Tool Design, Motor Design Ltd, Horizon Instruments, Newcastle University and HSSMI.

This £11 million APC funded project aimed to create an experimental “Make-Like-Production” facility in which JLR and supply chain partners will investigate manufacturing and assembly methods for automotive electric traction motors. The project developed the facility to prove production feasibility for automotive traction electric machines at a takt time corresponding to high volume production of e-machines. The partnership was able to understand the key attributes of the new manufacturing processes required to make the machines in high volumes and to understand the trade-offs between product performance and manufacturing cost and time.
