Active magnetic bearing Maintenance-Free bearing for maximum speeds

High speed applications require high quality bearing solutions. Magnetic bearings are wearless and maintenance-free thanks to contactless bearing. The magnetic bearings do not require any lubricant, making them ideal for high-speed applications. The magnetic bearing generates bearing forces purely electromagnetically and is therefore particularly suitable for machine operation in a vacuum.

Active magnetic bearings are particularly suitable for automated drive solutions for high-speed applications.
