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. 

Repairing Motors With Solar Powered Tools

Industrial Motor Repairing Tools - Solar Generators

The whole world seems to be trying to get off-grid these days. Homeowners are installing solar panels, and even the tall wind turbines, for renewable energy sources. Some are using this as a means of cutting down on energy bills or providing back-up in an emergency. Others are going further and can create a fully-working campsite or an eco-friendly home without commercial electricity.

These achievements raise questions about the potential of off-site mechanics and electricity use in different fields. For example, could workers use power tools with solar generators alone for motor repairing?

AC Motors For Heavy Industry

Industrial Motor

The standard electric motor is not a straightforward as many non-specialists might assume. There are lots of different types of motors out there for use in various applications within heavy industry. These motors fall under a series of the main categories, and each has its pros and cons for specific needs. The following guide looks at some the motor types in the AC and DC categories while considering some significant advancements.These improvements showcase the complexity of these new models and the way that developers are examining the needs of the industry. 

DOE Motor

Industrial Motor- DOE Motor System 

In 1998, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a comprehensive Motor System Market Assessment. The study was responsible for the way that the country looked at motors and fuel consumption nationally.As such, it was the measure to which they set their standards. It was also their means of understanding the place of individual motor technologies within the market. At the time, the results were significant. They found that in 1994, motor-driven system consumed 747 billion kWh, which related to 25% of US electricity sales.This meant that motors were the largest single users of electricity in the US. It was also estimated at the time that there was the potential for energy savings up to 18%. 62% of that within pumps, fans, and compressed air systems.
