Magnax Motors BV, specialized in the development of yokeless axial flux motors, is expanding its prototyping and testing capabilities at company headquarters in Kortrijk, Belgium. The pilot line expansion will play an important role in accelerating the development, manufacturing, and testing of prototypes of yokeless axial flux motors and power electronics at the facility.
With this investment, adjacent to the existing research and development offices, Magnax is bringing all critical manufacturing and testing capabilities under one roof. The construction work has already started and installation of new equipment as well as the relocation of existing equipment is anticipated to be completed by the fourth quarter of this year. The company is expected to employ about 40 people by the end of the year.
“With this 400 square meter pilot line expansion, state-of-the-art equipment and a talented team, we are positioning ourselves to take our promising axial flux motor technology to market. Having our R&D resources and manufacturing capabilities under one roof will accelerate the scale up of our prototyping and bring the motors towards industrialization faster”, said Marc Beulque, CEO. The market pull for axial flux motors is significantly increasing as major automotive players start to recognize the value of the high power density, high efficiency, and compactness of this technology, he noted.
The company was founded in 2015 by Peter Leijnen, Daan Moreels, and Kester Goh. It raised €16 million in Series A funding at the end of 2020. The company develops yokeless axial flux motors, an innovative type of electric motor delivering high power density and high efficiency, especially valued in e-mobility applications. Magnax is constantly on the lookout for talented people to support its growth, added Beulque.
