Transverse flux drives

FGB develops high-performance transversal flow drives, e.g. as linear drives that are designed to customer specifications. In addition, the company also designs and produces rotative systems based on the transversal flow technology.

FGB has specialised in greatly simplifying the production of these systems which is one of the reasons why they can be implemented widely in practice.

Today, transversal flow drives can be produced simply and inexpensively, and are perfectly suited for use on long paths.

The following shows an example of successful implementation:

4-6 N/cm2


up to 10 m/s

Benefits of our transversal flow linear drive:

  • Easy to manufacture
  • Very long paths possible
  • Without magnets in the secondary part
  • Sensor-free operation
  • High force density
  • Dynamic and precise
  • Customer-specific design
  • Can be operated with a standard servo-controller

Application options:

  • Transport
  • Logistics
  • Elevator equipment
  • Packaging equipment
  • Medical equipment
  • Machine construction
