Magnax, a Belgium startup unveils a new axial flux BLDC motor specifically designed for electric vehicles (EV) or hybrid cars. Electric vehicles commonly use electric motors that are powered by lithium batteries to drive. Other EVs use solar energy, but the mechanism is the same since electric motors are the primary drivers of these cars.
Magnax is considering mainstream hybrid cars, aviation as well as motorcycles as the primary targets when it introduces its new axial flux electric motor. The new type of engine is short, and it can operate as a hub inside the wheel or on the car's chassis. The critical feature of this new gadget is that it does not require permanent magnets.
Many sectors that rely on electric motors for their power requirements can significantly benefit from the axial flux motor. Wind turbines, for example, can help through the removal of the complicated and expensive gearbox that many radial flux motors require. On the other hand, axial flux motors can improve efficiency by up to 10% and many general industrial applications can benefit.
In short, the most significant thing is that an electric motor is the heart of an EV. The motor drives the vehicle, and its efficiency determines the level of performance. Unlike conventional cars with varying sizes of engines, this new electric motor is small and reliable.
