Permanent Magnet & Magnetic Assemblies | Axial Flux Motor Magnet
Brief introduction of axial flux motor
Axial flux motors are commonly used in various applications, including traction. They have some noticeable benefits compared to the conventional permanent magnet motors, such as higher power/torque densities, torque-to-weight ratios, and geometrically higher aspect ratios.
Axial flux motors with surface-mounted magnets have been the source of greater interest for many researchers and the most studied one in solar powered electric car applications.
Axial flux motor magnets & Back iron assembly
Axial flux motors have wedge-shaped neodymium magnets or a complete ring neodymium magnet which is axially magnetized in sectors, on a back iron as rotor. In some case, wedge-shaped magnets are laminated (laminated magnets) to reduce overheating. Tengye Magnetic is a leading manufacturer of axial flux motor magnets and magnetic assemblies.
