The FLIR Black Hornet is a really small drone and Brandauer supply the electrical steel laminations for its miniature motors.
Brandauer is an established provider of components for the defence industry.
Presence in the defence and military sector is founded on the back of converting complex, innovative and quality stringent requirements into viable stamped solutions. Of note is Brandauer’s ongoing supply of electrical steel laminations for discreet military reconnaissance systems.
Electrical steel laminations are the components used to make the ultra-precise electric motors in personal reconnaissance systems run like clockwork. Brandauer stamp electrical steel laminations that are just 0.1 to 0.65mm thin and consistently accurate to within just 20 microns and so are ideally suited to the industry’s demand for innovative solutions.
Innovation in the defence industry is key, along with cost-saving and manufacturing efficiency processes, all of which are qualities Brandauer pride themselves on holding. Brandauer are actively showing how it can tackle consistent issues such as weight, battery life and a lack of robustness and flexibility in all of the components manufactured in its facility in Birmingham. With the recent MoD SME Engagement policy highlighting a need to help change behaviours and share good practice engagement with SMEs, Brandauer are well positioned to promote its core competencies to the wider market.
Brandauer consistently work in high-spec materials, down to 0.05mm thickness and its specialist in-house tooling service can innovate automated solutions to fulfil the most challenging defence and military briefs. This capability is of particular importance to the supply of defence stamping solutions, with priorities in the industry set on innovation and manufacturing efficiency.
