Application of low viscosity resin masses

Application of low viscosity resin masses
In the production of electric motors, more precisely in the casting of the coil in the stator, very liquid, low-viscosity materials are processed. A continuous pulsation-free dispensing flow of the material is particularly important here. By trickling or impregnating the rotating drive components, the coils are provided with a protective layer.
