The Magnax Yokeless Axial Flux Machine introduces a new generation of electric motors / generators helping innovators in e-mobility build lighter and more energy-efficient products.
6 years of research and technology development on high-efficiency axial flux technology and 3 years of prototyping/DfM in collaboration with customers has resulted in motor technology that delivers 3 to 5 times more power density compared with traditional EV motors.
Magnax is the performance leader in PM axial flux motor architecture, with industry-leading efficiency (up to 97,3%), power density (3 to 5x higher than traditional motors), up to 24% more vehicle range, ease of manufacture, reliability and cost-effectiveness.
Our patented oil cooling system is undeniably the most effective system for axial flux motors. It directly serves the high torque- and power density that our motors can deliver.
Waterglycol- and air cooling is possible too (custom development).
Traditional Permanent Magnet EV Motors suffer from iron losses due to the large amount of iron in the motors. Compared with Traditional Permanent Magnet EV Motors, Magnax yokeless axial flux motors come with 85% less iron cores losses and significant lower iron iron mass compared with traditional EV motors (absence of a yoke etc.). The result is that Magnax yokeless axial flux motors can deliver up to 24% more vehicle range thanks to higher efficiency over a broad rpm range, lower no-load losses, lower weight and increased space for the battery.
The winding process of traditional EV motors (radial flux motors) is cumbersome and expensive due to complex winding machines and manual tasks.
The Magnax machine production process (core production, winding, busbar welding, magnet gluing, final assembly, etc.) is done via standard manufacturing methods which can be outsourced or automated.
