Coreless motor, a key component in robots, will experience exponential growth with an uptick in the adoption of humanoid robots, China International Capital Corporation (CICC) said today in a research note.
CICC explained that a single human-shaped robot requires 12 coreless motors, which in turn pushes up demand for related equipment like coil winding machine.
Coreless motor adopts a design that addresses multiple problems caused by a metal core structure.
Besides, it boasts advantages such as higher efficiency, faster speed and quicker response, enabling the robot to perform better in energy consumption, power and controllability.
These features allow a human-like robot to complete fine moves like gripping and clutching in real-life scenarios with ease and agility.
Overseas manufacturers currently dominate the domestic market for coreless motors. Their domestic counterparts are struggling to catch up with faster iterations, more cost-efficient offerings and better supporting services, CICC pointed out in the research note.
As adoption of humanoid robots rises, followed by steady progress in mass production, a variety of key parts used in them are likely to witness a spike in demand, CICC said.
