Axial Magnetic Bearing Using Permanent Magnets

Application ID: 14367

Permanent magnet bearings are used in turbomachinery, pumps, motors, generators, and flywheel energy storage systems, to mention a few application areas; contactless operation, low maintenance, and the ability to operate without lubrication are some key benefits compared to conventional mechanical bearings. This model illustrates how to calculate design parameters like magnetic forces and stiffness for an axial permanent magnet bearing.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
