Rift Technology – Electric Motor Configuration

Cutting down the size

The technology is significantly lighter than typical electric motors, as well as being much cheaper to manufacture. This combined with its ability to produce high power makes it suitable for a wide range of applications and sectors.

Electric machines

Moving into new sectors

Project Highlights
