Advantages of Advantages of Linear Magnetic Drives

The Advantages of Linear Magnetic Drives (LSM Drive)

  • ultra-high dynamics
  • velocities of up to 50 m/s (= 3000 m/min = 180 km/h = 112 mph)
  • acceleration of up to 100 m/s² (= 10 g)
  • short operating distances: either high velocity or frequent short movements
  • wear-free, maintenance-free: no clutches, no tooth belts, no spindles etc.
  • extremely reliable – high durability
  • precise positioning: no slackness, no spring effect within the drive
  • (almost) no flutter
  • high repeat accuracy
  • direct, non-contact, oscillation-free force transmission
  • very good controllability
  • stiff closed-loop control
  • comparably silent
  • unsensitive drive for tough environmental conditions
  • completely sealed – IP 65 and above are no problem
  • completely scalable (can be extended endlessly)
  • thrust of up to 200 kN (this is the traction force of a modern locomotive!)
  • meet highest safety requirements
  • the objects moved are fully passive – no power needed, no sensors and no electronics
  • can be used as a motor brake
