FluxMotor Software Lets You Create Your Own Machine

July 12, 2017
Altair's platform lets users design and create their own machines from standard or customized parts.

FluxMotor is a dedicated platform focusing on the pre-design of electric rotating machines and is part of Altair’s HyperWorks CAE Suite, which includes Flux, the leading software for low-frequency electromagnetic and thermal simulations. The software tool allows users to design and create machines from standard or customized parts, as well as to intuitively add windings and materials to run a selection of tests and compare machine capacity.


The software allows motor specialists to define machines and assess their technical-economic potential within minutes.  FluxMotor's efficient working environment ensures a better visualization of machine performances, enabling fast and accurate computations which can easily be connected to Flux finite element software and other tools within the HyperWorks suite for more advanced studies.
