Turbomachinery

Efficient air processing whether creating vacuum or strong air flow need high speed impellers. AMB technology is proven technology in achieving maintenance and oil free machinery.

Power generation

There are several applications which generate electricity AMB has crucial role in achieving the best efficiency rates.

Transportation

There are various vehicles where high speed drivetrains are needed in order to achieve higher efficiency and maintenance cost reductions. AMB technology enables these objectives.

High speed machines

Wherever high speed electrical machines are used AMB has important role in enabling this technology.

Active Magnetic Bearings for Flywheels

“Active magnetic bearings are five times more energy efficient than mechanical bearings and also require less maintenance as there is no physical contact. SpinDrive is specialized in providing tailored active magnetic bearing solutions, which is important for Teraloop due to the unique hubless design of the flywheel”
