UMC - Universal Motor Corporation GmbH

UMC GmbH is a development company, which targets to generate free piston engines from prototype to series.

The free piston engine e-Pex® represents a hybrid of a combustion engine and an electrical linear generator. The main feature of this power generating engine is the missing crankshaft which allows a fully variable adjustment of cylinder stroke and compression. This allows the maximisation of fuel efficiency at a high output of power and a controlled low emission combustion. Furthermore, variable compression allows the usage of different fuels and fuel composites (flexfuel). Another advantage of the free piston engine is the compact and simple construction and its modularity (duplication of power by combining several modules). With this flexibility the system has the potential of reaching the cost pressures and requirements of the modern automobile industry.

The enabling technology of the free piston engine may be used in many further fields of application, like stationary energy supply or as a mobile hydraulic system. The compact dimensions and the scalability allow even more applications, such as an emergency generator or a Auxiliary Power Unit (APU).
