The experience recently gained by the authors in the field of production and testing of new magnetic materials, especially developed for small electric machines, has been applied to the production of an axial flux permanent magnet motor prototype. In particular, different materials have been used for the stator and the rotor core, together with low-cost bonded permanent magnets; the machine under investigation is equipped with fractional slot windings and foils conductors insulated by a dedicated electro-deposition process. The design and the production of all the machine parts, as well as the experimental activities, have been performed and carried out by the research team at their Universities, without outsourcing needs. The design and FEM simulation results have been validated by means of comparison with experiments, obtaining good agreements.
