We are developing a novel design of Transverse Flux Motor for robotics and bionics
Transverse Flux Motor
Robotics and bionics, using traditional motors:
Spoil Operational Efficiency:
Underperform at slow speeds on high loads, and drain batteries quickly, causing: Frequent recharging -> Increased operation time -> Higher costs.
Unfit and spoil the Design:
Traditional electric motors are long and bulky, especially with gearboxes, which limits the design and functionality of robots and exoskeletons. This can affect the versatility of these devices and how well they fit into different operational settings.
Spoil Comfort and User Experience:
For exoskeletons, a bulky design can make the equipment uncomfortable to wear, downgrading wearer satisfaction and productivity.
Increase Maintenance and Shorten Lifespan:
Less efficient motors may require more frequent maintenance and could have a shorter operational lifespan. This can lead to higher maintenance costs and potentially more downtime.
Robotics equipped with the Transverse Flux Motors (TFM), can handle heavy loads at slow speeds more effectively. For example: it would make the exoskeleton more effective in assisting with slow, precise movements of heavy lifts.
Our High Torque Transverse Flux Motor (TFM):
- Sleek flat and round design, fits perfectly robotic joints of futuristic concept. Allows for more flexibility in robot design – free up space for other components and reduce bulkiness; and more comfortable, less intrusive design of the exoskeleton and bionics.
- Increase efficiency, and reduction of gears, meaning longer operation time between charges, extending the battery life, increasing its practical utility in real-world scenarios.
The design of TFMs also allows for higher torque at low rotational speeds, which is a significant advantage in applications that require strong force at slow speeds, such as electric vehicles or industrial robotics. Furthermore, the TFMs’ higher efficiency can lead to energy savings, longer operational times between charges, and potentially lower costs over time.
- Compact and Adaptable Design: The round and flat shape of TFMs is ideal for integrating into robotic joints or compact devices. Their design allows for seamless incorporation in a variety of form factors, providing flexibility in the design of robotics and bionics.
- High Cogging Torque: TFMs possess high cogging torque, which allows the motor to hold its position without applying energy, offering substantial power savings and precision in position-holding tasks. This is particularly beneficial in robotics and bionics where maintaining a position without constant energy use is a significant advantage.
- Excellent Performance at Low Speeds: Unlike BLDC and servo motors, TFMs maintain high efficiency even at low rotational speeds, making them ideal for applications requiring slow, powerful movements.
Our management team comprises seasoned professionals with expertise in mechanical and software engineering, team leadership, and project administration. Their collective experience spans high-tech industries, LEAN principles, and a range of sectors including semiconductor production, research and development, and startup management.
- As an emerging startup, we are pioneering the development of transverse flux motor (TFM) technology, primarily targeting robotics and bionics applications. Currently, our technology is at TRL5, primarily built upon our prior experience with transverse flux designs in energy generation systems.
- Our immediate plans involve elevating the TRL level, refining our designs, and ultimately rolling out a market-ready product. To realize this vision and bring this innovative technology to the forefront of the robotics and bionics sectors, we are actively seeking investment. This funding will provide the crucial support needed to advance our research, increase technological maturity, and spearhead our path to commercialization.
