AD1 - AddiMoT

Additive-subtractive manufacturing of multi-material sensor-integrated components of electrical machines for e-mobility using the example of the transverse flux machines

The electrification of vehicles offers many advantages compared to a powertrain with combustion engine. Novel developments enable new electric drive concepts such as the transverse flux machine as a direct drive in the field of e-mobility.

The aim of this project is to be able to manufacture the components relevant for the construction of a highly efficient transverse flux machine using largely automated additive-subtractive process chains in multi-material design. The newly designed process chains should enable a significantly more efficient production of transverse flux machines with higher power density and quality.



  • Higher power density through improved magnetic flux and smaller air gaps, higher copper fill factors and integrated cooling
  • Integration of sensor technology for data collection over the life cycle
  • Automation of manufacturing through innovative additive-subtractive process chains
  • A transverse flux machine as a cutaway model to illustrate individual components of an electric motor, such as optimized stator half-shells.
