Tubolari termoretraibili per il fissaggio di magneti permanenti

Tubolari termoretraibili per il fissaggio di magneti permanenti


Tubolari termoretraibili multi strato ad alta resistenza meccanica ed elevato coefficiente termico, per il fissaggio e la protezione di tutti i tipi di magneti permanenti applicati sui rotori dei motori brushless .

Un tubo spiralato multistrato che unisce i vantaggi di un poliestere termoretraibile ( perfetta adesione del tubo al rotore e protezione dei bordi dei magneti ) con quelli di una speciale fibra composita che aumenta in modo esponenziale la tenuta meccanica e la resistenza alla temperatura, rispetto al solo poliestere termo retraibile.

Il tubolare SHRINK-FIBER viene inserito sul rotore con i magneti in posizione e fatto termicamente retrarre, ottenendo una tenace aderenza, anche ad elevate velocità di rotazione. Resiste inoltre agli sbalzi termici che genera il motore in esercizio prolungato fino a 180°C.
