Axial flux motors are a type of electrical machines which use the flux in axial direction to create a magnetic circuit linkage with the other components in the magnets. The main benefit of this machine being that it is thinner than the radial motors and can have a high torque to magnet densities if designed correctly. They are used in various automotive to other applications.

Unlike typical cylindrical motors such as radial gap motors, axial gap motors have a structure in which the stator and the rotor, which is arranged on a disk, face each other and produce rotation. For that reason, because it is possible to arrange thinner parts than with a radial gap motor, they can respond to demands...
