RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

International connections

International

EGSTON collaborates closely with leading research organizations in Austria, Europe, and the USA. These include such renowned partners as e.g. the FH Joanneum, the Frauenhofer Institute, the ETH Zürich and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the USA.

CUSTOM DESIGNTHE BEST SOLUTION FOR YOU

On the basis of our knowledge and expertise and our partners’ ideas, we design optimal customized solutions and implement them with the aid of state-of-the-art development, production, and process-planning technologies to create high-quality and high-reliability serial products.

A WELL-ROUNDED CONCEPTTHE BEST MANUFACTURING PROCESSES FOR YOUR PRODUCT

Depending on your location, upon request, we will also undertake the high-quality and cost-efficient exclusive production of your products at one of our production facilities in Europe, China or India. 

Preliminary Research & Development

In order to ensure that the development departments within the individual fields are always up-to-date with the current state of product development and process technology, EGSTON maintains its own department that concentrates on preliminary research and development.
In the preliminary development stage, you will find the synergies of the technologies from all our fields of operation that we use to implement your product idea. This enables our product teams to support our customers in the implementation of their specific products with modern, innovative solutions.

Innovative Expertise

EGSTON has devel­oped the rel­e­vant exper­tise in order to be able to devel­op and man­u­fac­ture prod­ucts (for our cus­tomers) that not only achieve mar­ket suc­cess but also set new stan­dards in inno­va­tion and tech­ni­cal design.
With the sup­port of exter­nal research units, we are able to offer solu­tions in a num­ber of tech­ni­cal fields with a degree of inte­gra­tion you will prob­a­bly not find any­where else.

Layer-wound coils | Flatwire-wound coils | Compact braid-wound coils

We design coils with a max­i­mized cop­per fill fac­tor to ensure a par­tic­u­lar­ly high out­put den­si­ty for high-end appli­ca­tions for customers.
We have set new stan­dards for con­i­cal wind­ing and geo­met­ric pre­ci­sion in sin­gle-tooth sta­tor wind­ings and con­tin­ue to improve these technologies.
We have devel­oped spe­cial wind­ing tech­niques for the future use of high fre­quen­cies in sta­tors and pow­er inductors.

Thermo-management and waterproof systems

Thanks to our wealth of expe­ri­ence in the opti­mized redi­rec­tion of ener­gy loss, Egston can offer you solu­tions to facil­i­tate a more com­pact design for your prod­ucts while main­tain­ing a high pow­er den­si­ty with the aid of sim­u­la­tions, test setups, exper­i­ments and studies.
Egston has been man­u­fac­tur­ing water­proof sys­tems and assem­blies for over 20 years and is con­stant­ly improv­ing them.

Rogowski coils

Egston has been devel­op­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing Rogows­ki coils for over 25 years.
Thanks to a num­ber of research projects, we are now in a posi­tion to design these mea­sure­ment sen­sors and the cor­re­spond­ing eval­u­a­tion elec­tron­ic units accord­ing to your spec­i­fi­ca­tions. This also applies to appli­ca­tions that have not been deemed fea­si­ble up until today.
We can offer you solu­tions for the con­struc­tion, design, size, pre­ci­sion, and test­ing of these cur­rent sen­sors and man­u­fac­ture your coils at a high degree of pre­ci­sion with our inter­nal­ly devel­oped pro­duc­tion machines.

Electronics development

To opti­mize the per­for­mance of your induc­tive com­po­nent, Egston will pro­vide you with our know-how in elec­tron­ics and our research and devel­op­ment test­ing facilities.
Egston has 20 years of expe­ri­ence in the design of pow­er elec­tron­ics, charg­ing tech­nol­o­gy, and mea­sure­ment elec­tron­ics. This knowl­edge can sup­port you in the imple­men­ta­tion of your projects, espe­cial­ly if these are to be imple­ment­ed by EGSTON across our range of products.

Development tools

Ansys: FEM soft­ware pack­age for physics over­ar­ch­ing cal­cu­la­tions (mechan­i­cal, elec­tri­cal, ther­mal, etc.)
Sim­plor­er: Cir­cuit sim­u­la­tion with cou­pling to Ansys
Matlab/Simulink: Pro­gram for solv­ing dif­fer­en­tial equations
Spice: Cir­cuit sim­u­la­tion software

Process development

Dur­ing the pre­lim­i­nary devel­op­ment stage, Egston devel­ops the cor­re­spond­ing pro­duc­tion and test­ing process­es that will enable the future imple­men­ta­tion of your prod­uct ideas.

Casting, bonding, and immersion processes

Thanks to our inno­v­a­tive cast­ing and immer­sion process­es, we can meet your require­ments in the field of heat man­age­ment and waterproofing.
Advanced design in vac­u­um cast­ing processes
Coil immer­sion process­es (CCI technology)
Or mag­net bonding
All demon­strate the poten­tial for devel­op­ment that we can pro­vide for the imple­men­ta­tion of your product

Winding technology

Prod­uct-spe­cif­ic wind­ing tech­nol­o­gy is one of the core com­pe­ten­cies that have been estab­lished and con­tin­u­ous­ly devel­oped by EGSTON over the past 25 years.
We have set sev­er­al stan­dards in wind­ing Rogows­ki coils in the past, which have gained the recog­ni­tion of our cus­tomers all over the world.
Anoth­er focus of our con­tin­u­ous process devel­op­ment is on inno­va­tions in wind­ing sta­tor teeth.
Egston holds a num­ber of patents in the field of sta­tor winding.

Testing technology

Egston devel­ops inno­v­a­tive test­ing tech­nol­o­gy to allow us to test the spe­cif­ic require­ments of your induc­tive products.
The research depart­ment col­lab­o­rates with our inter­nal pro­duc­tion automa­tion depart­ment to devel­op the cor­re­spond­ing — and in some cas­es ful­ly auto­mat­ic — test­ing process­es to ensure the qual­i­ty of your products.

Patents

More than 18 patents and a num­ber of indus­tri­al prop­er­ty rights cur­rent­ly under review attest to our inno­v­a­tive capacity.
Egston holds a num­ber of patents in Aus­tria, Ger­many and abroad to pro­tect our intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty for our com­pa­ny and your products.
