Solenoid Design

Solenoid Design

Solenoid Design


I work for a company that's developing a new product from some existing technology. We have a question regarding the existing technology. It's a solenoid actuated device, similar to a fuel injector. We'd like to know if the design can be improved upon. It would be nice if the device could be improved to produce the same result, using less power, by redesigning it. Would a different coil be better? Longer? Shorter? More windings? Fewer windings? Tighter clearances? Different metals? We'd like someone to look at the current design and answer these questions.

Do any of you know of a good engineer or company that we can hire for this project? We'd like it if they specialized in solenoids, or at least electromagnetics.

An NDA would have to be signed.

Where are your company located?
What is the the product is required for? Commercial, Military, Aerospace?

RE: Solenoid Design

We're located in Minnesota. It's a commercial product.

RE: Solenoid Design

Thank you MagMike. That's exactly what we're looking for.

I wish I could just discuss the project on the forum, but the company won't allow me to do that.
