magniX, a subsidiary of Heron Energy, is a privately owned company based in Queensland which develops and commercialises advanced, power dense and energy-efficient motors and generators.
Power density and efficiency are the keys to the successful transformation of energy supplies to ensure our environment endures in the face of growing energy demands.
magniX is leading energy innovation to deliver cost effective electrification and decarbonisation of our world by developing ground breaking patented superconductor and permanent magnet rotating machines based on magniflux™.
magniflux™ delivers power densities and efficiencies unobtainable by today’s conventional systems and forms the basis of the technology inside our motors and generators.
While conventional machines stop at 2.5 kW/kg, with nominal values between 0.25 and 0.5 kW/kg, the power to mass ratios for the magniX rotating machines are between 10 and 25 kW/kg. To put this in perspective, magniX technology is capable of producing up to three times the power density of modern aircraft engines.
Using magniflux™ we can achieve 25kW/kg — a technical goal which has significant commercial value within existing industries and the ability to create new markets.
