Wherever quick stop-start, zero cogging, low inductance, precise electronic motor control, a low thermal time constant, or simply a slim, axially flat packaging profile are required, pancake motors, also known as printed armature motors and servodisc motors, are used in a variety of industrial applications.
Using a gearbox or transmission is not necessary when using pancake motors because of their tremendous torque. The application’s operating lifetime and efficiency are increased as a result of the decrease in the number of moving parts.
The Global Pancake Motor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Powering the new Propel electric outboard is a pancake axial-flux motor. The brand-new Propel electric outboard and inboard boat motors, making their premiere this week at, will be powered by revolutionary Saietta AFT motors for lightweight EVs and motorcycles. METSTRADE AFT stands for Axial Flux Technology.
Axial flux describes an electric motor layout that is flat, like a pancake, as opposed to cylindrical, like most motors. To put it simply, it means that the magnetic forces are parallel to the motor’s axle rather than radiating out from the axis, which is known as radial flux. In general, axial flux produces more torque per volume, and the Saietta AFT 140 motor has received praise for being very effective.
Less weight and a longer range are two characteristics that are very desirable in an electric boat motor. High torque per volume and efficiency translate into these qualities. Hence, Saietta’s marine propulsion branch, Propel, debuted with two beautifully crafted motors: the Propel S1 electric outboard and Propel D1 electric inboard.
The AFT 140 motor’s torque and RPM profile were taken into consideration when designing the prop. The four-blade design ended up being the most effective at balancing size and motor performance after months of tests and adjustments using computational fluid dynamics software.
The S1 can be used with other packs, but Propel is also designing its own LiFePO battery packs for the S1 to optimise the entire system.
