DHX Electric Machines Inc.
DeltaWing Technology Group has an agreement with DHX Electric Machines Inc. granting DeltaWing worldwide rights to make, use and sell ground-breaking electric motors and components specifically designed for automotive applications.
Located on the DeltaWing Technology Group campus in Braselton, Ga., DHX Electric Machines Inc. is ramping up electric motor production and developing applications for multiple DeltaWing Technology Group automotive projects.
Electric motors generate heat, which is the enemy of a motor's efficiency. Thanks to DHX Electric Machines' innovative approach to dissipating energy and torque sapping heat, its new motors are 75 percent smaller, significantly lighter, yet as powerful as conventional motors.
New cooling technology provides big power and torque in a small package
The majority of the thermal losses in high-torque electric motors are generated in the windings. Heat typically dissipates through the stator to the frame via air or liquid cooling. DHX Electric Machines' patented advanced cooling uses the Direct-Winding Heat Exchanger (DWHX) to remove the heat right at the source. Each DWHX features tiny channels to dissipate heat, significantly reducing thermal resistance and increasing efficiency.
The DHX Falcon electric motor features standard materials, not exotic steels and magnets and achieves power densities of 120 horsepower per gallon (25kW per liter) and extraordinary torque of 195 ft-lbs/gallon (70 Nm/l). In simple terms, it delivers the power and torque of the standard sedan's powertrain in the space of a one-gallon can of paint.
"I was amazed when I first saw this new motor," said Don Panoz, chairman of DeltaWing Technology Group. "Imagine a light and cool-to-the-touch 20-horsepower motor the size of a 12-oz. can, and one that fits in two hands and puts out 80 or more horsepower. It's simply a transportation game-changer."

DeltaWing Technology Group, DeltaWing Technologies Inc. and the DeltaWing Manufacturing Co. are named after the DeltaWing prototype race car project that debuted as the inaugural Garage 56 entry at the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The innovative DeltaWing roadster and coupe race cars competed in IMSA races across North America from 2013 through 2016. Both showed promise, racing with roughly half the horsepower, about half the weight, and significantly less fuel consumption than the competitors.
Applying the efficiency lessons learned on the race track, the DeltaWing team created several DeltaWing street car prototypes during the life of the project with the goal of changing how we view passenger cars.
Today the DeltaWing serves as an example of the company’s out-of-the-box thinking and approach. We apply this philosophy to developing tomorrow's transportation solutions and creating technologies that make cars lighter, more energy efficient, and cleaner.
