Due to the increasing demand for electro mobility and specifically for electrified vehicles, the demand for electric drive technology is expanding significantly with changing requirements in terms of the process and the application. The electrical insulation system of the stator is an essential part of the fabrication process with a high impact on the application properties. Due to limitations—for example, in terms of suitable materials for the stator insulation—a new technology of integrated fabrication by injection molding of thermosets has been founded. In this study, two epoxy (EP) types with different fillers were investigated to prove their suitability in terms of the material properties in the fabrication process and the application. A general realization of the integrated fabrication of insulation systems in electrical engineering by injection molding was proved. Further, the differences regarding the suitability of the two materials are portrayed. It was demonstrated that mainly the filler material influences the fabrication process and the properties in the application, leading to differing suitability in terms of the EP 3162 EMG within the fabrication process and in terms of XW 6640-1 within the application properties of the thermal conductivity and the thermal linear expansion. It was further shown that the filler within the material system is required to increase the thermal conductivity needed for the application. The inclusion of the filler influences the reaction kinetics and the viscosity behavior. A fabrication of the material with fillers is however still possible.
