SYNCHRO-SYM Technologies


Our Mission:



For Our Clean, Efficient, & Sustainable

Energy Future!


Clearly, Best Electric Machine (BEM) provides the best electric propulsion motor and generator system (i.e., SYNCHRO-SYM) for the electric vehicle (EV) market with twice the performance and at least twice the peak torque density of any other electric machine. Also, BEM provides the best practical 3D printer (i.e., MOTORPRINTER) for the additive manufacture of axial flux electric machines with the highest performance materials, such as amorphous metal ribbon. Again, BEM provides the best EV micro distribution bus system (i.e., BM-HFMDB) with the fewest number of active electronic stages, the most efficiency, and the lowest cost. By leveraging the patents of SYNCHRO-SYM Technologies, such as SYNCHRO-SYM, BM-HFMDB, and MOTORPRINTER, another goal of BEM is to democratize the automobile industry  by providing a Universal Electric Vehicle Powertrain Chassis Module (BEM-UPM) to original equipment manufacturers (OEM) of motor vehicles, such as Toyota, GM, Ford, Tesla, etc., or to independent coach builders, such as boutique EV manufacturers.


The BEM-UPM includes two modular suspension modules (MSM). Each MSM comprises the suspension frame and components (e.g., traditional independent wishbone frames) that are performance optimized to a fixed length, an articulated driveshaft (e.g., dual velocity joints), active suspension, such as the Clearmotion (BOSE) active suspension, and load leveling, wheel bearings and bushings, brake, electric motor/generator system, such as SYNCHRO-SYM, and wheel and tire. The motor/generator system (e.g., direct drive SYNCHRO-SYM) and brake assembly are located on the fixed chassis portion of the MSM for the most optimized unsprung weight distribution for best ride and dynamic stability during vehicle speed, turning, road conditions, braking, acceleration, gyroscopic effects of wheel inertia, etc. The MSM could include power steering articulation components and torque vectoring. The MSM ride performance will be programmable for OEM branding. Note: The MSM is conceptually similar to in-wheel motors, such as the Protean In wheel motor and Elaphe in wheel motor, but includes the required suspension with the lowest possible unsprung weight for significant performance improvement in ride and stability. To universally accommodate different wheel widths with simple adjustment, the BEM-UPM comprises two MSMs that slide away or toward each other on at least two structural tube frames. Inside, the tubes also contain a bank of supercapacitors for providing high power density during motoring (acceleration) or regenerative braking (deceleration).


The BEM-UPM may use MAGNAX, Yasa Motors, EMRAX, etc. motors with transmissions but the BRTEC of each superior performing direct drive SYNCHRO-SYM additionally provides isolated electronic power condition control between the banks of supercapacitors and the EV battery (or fuel cell) for a high power density (supercapacitors) and high energy density (battery) electric storage system of systems. The BRTEC also provides an isolated balanced multiphase high power high frequency AC micro distribution bus system (BM-HFMDB) for universally powering multiple electric machines and a full complement of accessories, such as a universal EV battery recharger, low power accessories, etc., along the micro distribution bus, with the best efficiency and a significant reduction in electronic stages in the system of systems. It is conceivable that several hoses with metal braided sheaths will simultaneously distribute the high frequency multiphase power and cooling medium (if needed), where the braided sheath of the hoses provides the high power, high frequency Litz wire electrical power distribution with the high pressure cooling medium distribution (e.g., 4 braided hoses for 3 phases plus neutral).


If placed in the front and rear of the vehicle, the self-contained (and modular) BEM-UPM (with MSMs incorporating direct drive SYNCHRO-SYMs) may provide independent four wheel drive and four wheel power steering, regenerative braking, ABS, stability control, torque vectoring, etc., (by at least autonomously controlling individual motors of individual wheels). All components of the BEM-UPM can be easily replaced for maintainability, such as removing the motors, supercapacitors, etc. The BEM-UPM may comprise high performance off-the-shelf vehicle suspension components to leverage the volume production costs and non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs of OEM components. Because electric machines are highly reliable components, the universal wheel width makes BEM-UPM re-usable without obsolescence.


In contrast to today’s diverse complement of OEM designed and manufactured drive-trains, the BEM-UPM NRE and volume production will be amortized amongst several OEM customers and vehicle models to dramatically reduce costs. With a less expensive but best performing suspension, micro distribution bus system (e.g., BM-HFMDB), and drive-train (e.g., the best direct drive SYNCHRO-SYMs) possible, the vehicle industry will be democratized amongst OEM and boutique automobile manufacturers, stylists, and artisans just as 3D printed cars are expected to democratize body styles amongst multiple players. For instance, the BEM-UPM may allow anybody to customize their vehicles exterior and interior styles, luxury appointments, cabin styles, art, designs, warranties, deliveries, etc., with the best engineered drive-train component available, which is the BEM-UPM programmed to the preferred comfort and driving performance brand of the manufacturer or the individual designer. Alleviated from the vehicle drive train design and manufacture, the BEM-UPM will also democratize EV battery development, vehicle control development, etc.
