SpinDrive Active Magnetic Bearings

Easy and affordable AMB systems

Benefits of Active Magnetic Bearings (AMB) 

AMB levitates the rotational part of the electrical machine completely eliminating friction

Higher system efficiency

Higher speeds, no gearbox, no friction

Maintenance-free bearings

Saves 80% on the equipment maintenance costs

Oil-free operation

No risk of oil contamination

Condition
monitoring

Prevents unexpected process failures

High-speed machines

Turbomachinery

Efficient air and gas processing whether creating vacuum or strong air flow needs high-speed impellers. AMB technology is a proven solution for achieving maintenance and oil-free turbo machinery with high rotational speeds.

Power generation

Electricity generation using high-speed turbines is used in e.g. waste heat recovery and renewable energy. AMB has a crucial role in achieving the best efficiency rates with high speeds.

Transportation

High-speed drivetrains are needed in transportation applications to achieve higher efficiency, compactness and reliable operation. AMB technology enables these objectives.

High-speed machines

Wherever high-speed electrical machines are used, AMB has an important role in enabling this technology by broadening the speed limits.
