New Pre2Pos motor reaches prototype stage

May 18th, 2017|Events, News|

We are excited to announce that Pre2Pos second piezo-drive, AG-LT, has finally been prototyped, and will soon begin its first experimental campaign. AG-LT is very different from the previous AG-HT drive, using a completely different working principle that will preserve all the advantages of AG-HT, while achieving higher rotational speed at the expense of a [...]

First six month with PRE2POS

March 20th, 2017|Events, News|

PRE2POS has eventually reached the end of its first semester, and our team is pleasingly impressed by the results hitherto accomplished. Since Phi Drive and Arquimea began their collaboration in October 2016, the project accomplished remarkable results in the design of AG-HT drive. Its concept was first introduced by Nicola Cau and Paolo Bonfiglio, Phi Drive cofounders, and [...]

Successful experimental campaign for AG-HT

January 27th, 2017|News, Results|

The latest prototype of AG-HT has been successfully tested in Phi Drive lab. Torque and speed performances follow the project specifics, and are in agreement with our numerical simulation, carried out with FEM. Phi Drive team will now focus on further increasing the performances and consolidate the technology.
