PRIMET CEO LARRY THOMAS TO ADDRESS PRESTIGIOUS 2012 POWERTRAIN ELECTRIC MOTORS SYMPOSIUM
Detroit conference to focus on global innovations in electric vehicles
March 20, 2012 (Ithaca, NY) – Larry Thomas, Primet Precision Materials’ CEO, has been invited by the Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) International to speak at the 2012 Powertrain Electric Motors Symposium (http://www.sae.org/events/emotorusa) in Detroit, MI on April 23, 2012. Held in conjunction with the SAE 2012 World Congress, the conference will provide a comprehensive overview on the latest global innovations in the vehicle powertrain electric traction motor industry, as well as give insight on this rapidly changing sector and its effects on the worldwide marketplace.
Mr. Thomas’ presentation will address raw material and manufacturing cost, and their impact on lower cost automotive battery cells/packs. The evolution of these products could have profound effects on the automotive industry in relation to electric vehicles (EV’s). Primet’s invitation was based on the company’s unique contributions there.
Primet’s patented NanoScission® process technology can dramatically lower electrode material costs while supporting industrially scalable manufacturing required to make large quantities of materials needed by the EV industry, previously an industry wide deterrent for mass production.
The program will also address market growth projections, requirements and cost structures for three varieties of electric traction motors: permanent magnet motors, induction motors and switch reluctance motors. This year’s symposium will feature expanded coverage of rare earth metals, and for the first time, presentations on testing and simulations.
SAE International (www.sae.org) is a global association of more than 134,000 engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive and commercial vehicle industries.
