TECHNOLOGIES TO POWER A NEW ECONOMY
TECHNONLGY BEING DEVELOPED

At LUXZIUM, we fundamentally like large problems that are amenable to technological disruption. We seek out defensible advantages: proprietary and protected technological advances, business model innovations, and unique partnerships. Most importantly, we invest in “A” teams and founders with a demonstrable history of development/traction. We invest more in people than in a specific plan, because plans often change.

Wyoming may hold the key to the rare earth minerals trade war with China

Wyoming is best known for its picturesque views and towering mountain ranges, but if Randy Scott has his way, it’ll become famous for something else: rare earth minerals. These resources have been in the spotlight since China, the country that dominates global supply, threatened in May to cut off supply to the U.S. as part of the U.S.–China trade war.

Since 2011, when Scott became the president and CEO of Littleton, Colorado-based Rare Earth Resources, the veteran mining executive and metallurgical engineer has been trying to get a massive stash of rare earth — a metallic element that’s used in cellphones, electric vehicle batteries, fluorescent lights, defense, clean energy and much more — out of Bear Lodge, a small mountain range tucked away in the northeast corner of the state, about 40 miles from South Dakota’s border.



FUNDING

About MNvest

MNvest is a Minnesota law permitting investment crowdfunding, a new way to fund Minnesota's growing businesses. Similar to reward-based crowdfunding sites (like Kickstarter), MNvest enables Minnesota businesses to legally advertise investment opportunities to all Minnesota residents.


FIAT to CRYPTO METAL COINS

A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency that is secured by cryptography, which makes it nearly impossible to counterfeit or double-spend. Many cryptocurrencies are decentralized networks based on blockchain technology—a distributed ledger enforced by a disparate network of computers.

Is a Permanent Magnet motor Feasible? Yes, there are billions of them in use all over the world

Is it possible to make a “motor” that uses permanent magnets only? NO. A MOTOR, as the dictionary describes, “is a machine that converts electrical energy to mechanical energy.” In another words, the electrical energy is a “battery” and the mechanical energy is the “rotation.”  

PATENT PENDING

WHAT’S NEXT

THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY WILL NEED MILLIONS OF TONS OF RARE EARTHS FOR THE MAGNETS. WHERE WILL THEY COME FROM.

The Long Range All Electric Transportation systems

That are Totally Green.

THE CAR COMPANY THAT USES THIS TECHNOLOGY TO BUILD A CAR WILL BE ABLE TO PRODUCE THE WORLDS FIRST ULTRA LONG RANGE, LOW-COST CARS.

  1. No Emissions
  2. Long Range over 100,000 miles
  3. Fast: speeds over 120 MPH
  4. Can be mounted in any make or model of car, truck, or any other transportation application.
  5. Safe:
  • Safer than Hydrogen will not explode
  • Safer than Gas nothing to catch fire
  • Safer than Lithium-ion batteries (batteries catch fire & can explode)
  1. Cheap to make, Fuel, and maintain
  2. Requires no new infrastructure to put it into wide use any place in the world.

 

The systems start with the Laser Power Systems Phoenix T2000 Ultra High output MaxFelaser a Hybrid Solid state design that can producing up to more than enough to Flash water to high pressure steam driving a Tesla type turbine and high-speed light weight generator Under development for U.S. Air Force, this is a 125 kW / 200 kW, 62,000 RPM generator using low-cost induction technology to provide a compact, efficient generator system for stable and safe operation. These generators operate in high temperature environments and provide engine start function as well.  High temperature insulation schemes are also being developed.  Compact power electronic controllers

 

This technology is ready to be adapted for use in cars, truck and other vehicles complete systems will weight less than 350 lbs. the 200 Kw unit equals 250 HP and larger units can easily be built.  Power to the wheels would be provided by a High Torque Density Traction Motor also Developed under contract from the U.S. Army TACOM, the motor is of a pancake type design with water-cooled stators. Compact electric motors and motor drives based on permanent magnet, brushless motor technologies provide high efficiency and compact size.

The controller design is based on field orientation and hysteretic switching for fast response to transient load changes.  The software-based control system is flexible and optimizes the generator performance.  Electric start function is available. The controller design is based on hysteretic switching of input current. Water cooled power IGBTs have control signals transmitted via fiber optic cables to prevent adverse effects of electrical interference. Brass board assembly and tests with partial loads have already been completed.

The laser power systems have an operational time to burn out, of about 5,000 hours hours at full power output before they need to be replaced. Giving a car the range of 5000hX60MPH that’s right 300,000 miles of driving before fuel cell replacement, which will be in the range of $750 to $1,000 dollars.
