SL-MTI Torque Systems is pleased to announce a recent collaboration with the world-renowned
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
This past Spring SLMTI Torque Systems was approached by MIT’s Hyperloop Team, with hopes to find a
motor supplier for the Hyperloop Pod MIT is designing and building for the SpaceX Hyperloop Design
Competition, which will be held January 27-29, 2017 in Hawthorne, CA The motors will be used to
position the pod before and after each trial run.
Torque Systems’ engineering department successfully designed a Brushless Motor solution to meet MIT’s
motor requirements for this unique application & delivered the final product to MIT in less than three
weeks from order date.
SL-MTI Torque Systems wish the best of luck to MIT’s Hyperloop team at the SpaceX Competition.
