B. Hepworth to develop a next generation windshield solution

Electric motor design and software company ECM PCB Stator Tech and B. Hepworth, window wiping/wash systems company, are to develop a next generation solution integrating PCB Stator electric motors.

B. Hepworth will utilise ECM’s Motor CAD optimisation platform, PrintStator and has already begun production of a commercial windshield wiper product due to enter markets in the first quarter of 2025.

The company plans to optimise additional B. Hepworth windscreen wiper and wash systems with PCB Stator’s systems.

“Our partnership with ECM heralds a new era in motor technology and is aligned with our commitment to efficiency and sustainability,” said B. Hepworth’s head of sales, marketing, and engineering, Bert Thijssen.

“By integrating their cutting-edge PCB Stator design solutions, we’re not only enhancing performance but also reducing material usage. This paves the way for environmentally conscious progress in our products.”

Headquartered in the UK, with a US based subsidiary, B. Hepworth has more than 70 years of experience in designing high performance marine wiper systems.

B. Hepworth is already a long-time leader in innovating superior wiper products for the machines that move the world.

“B. Hepworth is already a long-time leader in innovating superior wiper products for the machines that move the world,” said ECM CEO Brian Casey. “ECM is excited to join forces to help take that performance and innovation to the next level.”

ECM pairs patented PCB Stator innovation to PrintStator Motor CAD to create next generation electric machines that are developed to be small, quiet, energy and space efficient.

ECM’s PCB Stators replace the bulky copper windings in traditional motors with an ultra-thin disc.

PCB Stator motors designed with PrintStator are said to be up to 70% lighter than conventional options — while achieving efficiencies in excess of 90% and requiring just 20% of the raw materials.

ECM PCB Stator Tech uses advanced Motor CAD and patented PCB Stator — printed circuit board — technology to create next generation electric motors for multiple applications.

ECM’s PrintStator software powers the design, manufacture, and integration of PCB Stator motors that are lighter, quieter, and more energy and space efficient across a broad range of uses.
