A New Generation of Axial Flux Motors for electric vehicles

[ All news ] [ Previous ]


A startup Belgian company wants to join the electric vehicle (EV) world with its new axial flux motor design.

Magnax has spent six years developing its axial flux motors (with permanent magnets on the face of the rotor). The design’s dual rotors allow the use of grain-oriented magnetic steel that Magnax claims can lower core losses by as much as 85% for improved efficiency. The company uses a rectangular section copper to wind its stator. This results in a fill factor as high as 90%, again improving efficiency.
