The Linz Center of Mechatronics is your research and development partner in the field of mechatronics, located in Linz. From idea generation, scientific research and feasibility studies to the backing of the introduction of series production: our infrastructure enables the production of prototypes and small lot sizes as well as the examination of systems and components. Competencies range from electric- and hydraulic drive systems, optimal system control by use of digital twins enabled by multi-physics simulations to the area of sensors and communication. A major part of the center is focused on the development of electric drives and hybridization of the drivetrain. All relevant competencies such as simulation, optimization, electronics and prototyping interlock to implement the best suited drive for the chosen application – efficient, robust and cost-effective. In the field of electrical drive systems LCM provides:


Major complexity reduction by the use of SyMSpace. The design of electrical machines requires complex simulations and optimizations. The overall system (electromagnetics, rotor dynamics, thermal conditions, etc.) counts as much as the details (magnetic losses, torque ripple, current harmonics, etc.). With the SyMSpace MotorBox, LCM also offers a comprehensive motor design software tool on a pay-per-use basis. For more details see also


E-drives with matched power electronics. Optimized power electronics allows highest efficiency, power density and robustness. With different designs, communication interfaces, safety mechanisms, switching topologies and voltage levels LCM gets the most out of your drive solution.


Easy control of your drive train, even sensorless. Only the optimal control of the electric machine exploits all potentials. From simple speed controllers to optimized current curves or to sensorless control. X2C is available as commercial tool and a free community edition, available at
