Scaling axial flux motor technology – from niche to mainstream

Axial flux motor topology offers a compelling advantage in terms of its compact form factor and high torque and power density. Existing offerings of this technology remain restricted to niche applications but it holds tremendous potential if design innovations to make it a volume-friendly solution are implemented. The presentation will explore the market and technology landscape of axial flux motors and how design and production innovations can enable their application in high-volume mainstream applications.
