Electrifying highlights 2022

Thank you to all our customers, partners and contacts for a successful, exciting and inspiring 2022! Thanks for your support, we can look back on many electrifying highlights:


  • Further development and improvement of our key focus areas: Traction systems, auxiliaries and energy conversion.
  • We developed a new method on how to cool inductors, an auxiliary motor with a first relevant testing and the JMAG models for the double-sided axial flux machine design have been released etc.
  • In 2022 we succeeded in optimizing both: the radial and axial flux system performances.
    ePOP was used for a systematic approach to develop sustainable electrified propulsion systems. In this context we are already testing the next generation of SMC material.
  • We have completed a transmission study to outline the CO2 impact on EV transmissions and developed high level sustainability concepts.
  • We finalized a collaboration agreement with DSD who specialize in the rapid engineering and development of electrified propulsion systems.
  • The new Helsingborg office location was announced. The workplace will include offices, a workshop, a test lab and meeting spaces.
  • Last but not least, we have succeeded in hiring a new CTO, Prototyping Manager, Electric Machine Designer and System Application Engineer.

Thank you to the Alvier Mechatronics team for a great 2022!


Drive System Design and Alvier Mechatronics Establish Joint Operating Agreement to Provide Sustainable Electrified Propulsion Solutions

  • Alvier Mechatronics backed by industry leader parent company Höganäs AB
  • Collaboration decreases time-to-market, increases sustainability and leverages the industry’s most advanced technology for development of electrified propulsion

Farmington Hills, Mich. – Oct. 25, 2022 – Drive System Design (DSD), a company specializing in the rapid engineering and development of electrified propulsion systems and Alvier Mechatronics, an engineering service company with special competence in advanced materials and production methods for sustainable, high-volume applications, are joining forces to provide the mobility industry with engineering services to support sustainable electrified propulsion solutions across automotive, commercial vehicle, off-highway, marine and aerospace applications.

The two companies signed a joint operating agreement to combine DSD’s expertise in full electrified propulsion system design encompassing simulation, prototyping and validation, with Alvier Mechatronics’ industry-leading capabilities in powder metallurgy and electromagnetic design. This collaboration will unlock significant improvements in the development of electrified systems, and bring innovative turnkey solutions to the industry, including:

  • Speed-to-market increase by combining metallurgical and electromagnetic phases of development and reduced prototype lead-time.
  • Sustainability improvements in the use of CO2, resulting in an overall reduction during the development process, to complement both companies’ ability to reduce CO2 production during system operation.
  • Expertise from the combined experience and resources of Höganäs AB, DSD and Alvier Mechatronics.

“This collaboration will capitalize on the combined skills and capabilities of each company to serve our new and existing customers in exciting ways,” said Daniel Hervén, CEO, Alvier Mechatronics.

“Working with Alvier Mechatronics is a great opportunity for DSD to diversify its contribution to the advancement of sustainable electrified propulsion across an array of critical industries,” said Mark Findlay, managing director, DSD. “It is a company with trusted capability in the industry, and we look forward to pushing the boundaries of sustainable electrification.”
