  • Patent number: 11489382
    Abstract: The invention relates to a rotor for a synchronous drive motor including a plurality of rotor poles, each rotor pole having at least two magnetic layers arranged radially one behind the other, and each magnetic layer comprising a series of magnetic elements, which are formed by injection molding or casting, and solidification of permanent magnetic material in rotor cavities. According to the invention, at least a portion of the magnetic elements each include projections protruding on both sides in their radially inner halves to introduce centrifugal forces of the magnetic elements into the rotor. This ensures an improved possibility of supporting the magnetic elements where sufficient rotor material is available. As a result, it is possible to prevent the radially outer ends of the magnetic elements from abutting the wall of the rotor as a result of centrifugal forces, which reduces the loads and deformations in the webs and bridges between the magnetic elements or to the outer edge of the rotor.
