Spindle Technology – Good Vibrations

Vibration is generally a bad thing when machining. But the fact that controlled vibration can in fact deliver significant benefits in drilling is demonstrated by LTI Motion GmbH, in conjunction with Heinz Fiege GmbH, and its magnetic bearing spindle, which …Read More

Magnetic Gear with High Gear Ratio of 1:21

Magnetic gears – contactless torque transmission Magnetic gears are able to transmit torque between an input and an output shaft without mechanical contact. Due to their contactless torque transmission, magnetic gears are efficient and allow high rotational speeds. Furthermore, they …Read More

Subsea gas compression system

SKF S2M magnetic bearings equip the first ever subsea gas compression system at the Statoil-operated Åsgard gas field near the Norwegian coast. SKF S2M has supplied magnetic bearings for use in the world’s first subsea gas compression system at the …Read More

10MW magnetically levitated turbine

Siemens hands over first oil-free steam turbine to Vattenfall Siemens has delivered for the first time a steam turbine in the capacity range up to 10 megawatts (MW) that operates almost entirely without lubricants. The bearing systems consist of completely …Read More

Turbo Compressor System

AMB technology helps pushing the economy of scale TurboPowerSystems UK wanted to equip their motors for a Compressor System with magnetic bearings to increase efficiency and speed. There are 17 different impeller types to be combined with 2 types of …Read More

New Magnetic Gear                  

Due to recent development, conventional gears can be replaced by powerful magnetic gearing systems. These gears with high-torque capability offer completely new features which are novel to the industry, highly favorable and not known for gears up to now. In …Read More

Bearingless High-Speed Drive

A clear trend towards smaller systems saving material cost and weight can be observed in many modern drives. By increasing the speed, equal output power can be provided by a much smaller system. Mechanical bearings often limit the maximum speed …Read More

Bearingless Fan                  

ebmpapst St. Georgen GmbH & Co KG and LCM have jointly developed a magnetically levitated fan. The main focus of the development was to enhance the life time of compact high speed fans. At present, the roller bearings used in …Read More

Chatter Suppression in High-Speed Machining

Machining chatter is a self-excited vibration occuring between the cutting tool and workpiece.  Large amplitude vibrations caused by chatter may lead to damaging the cutting tool and/or the inability to hold part tolerance. It follows that the onset of chatter …Read More
