The windings in electric motors are essential components that create the electromagnetic fields necessary for motor operation.

Different types of windings are used depending on the motor’s design and application requirements.

Random/Mush Wound

A random wound electric motor winding is a type of winding where the wire is wound onto the motor’s stator in a somewhat disordered manner, rather than being precisely laid out.

This method of winding is commonly used in small to medium-sized motors where manufacturing speed and cost are important factors.

Form Wound

A form wound electric motor winding, also known as precision winding or coil wound winding, is a type of winding where the wire coils are pre-formed and placed precisely into the motor’s stator or rotor slots.

This method results in a highly organized and structured winding arrangement, which offers several advantages in terms of performance, efficiency, and reliability.
