MagnaDrive’s patented technology eliminates vibration, increases ergo efficiency, and improves product quality.
MagnaDrive’s high power magnets made of Neodymium-Iron-Boron create a strong magnetic force that we use for torque transfer. Essentially, this system separates the two elements of the motor system by placing magnet discs on the load shaft and a conductor assembly on the motor shaft. The motor torque then transfers to the load across an air gap. When we vary the air gap measurement, it alters the strength of the magnetic field, and therefore controls the output speed.
Benefits of Our Technology
Protected by a portfolio of 20 domestic and over 200 foreign patents, MagnaDrive’s cutting-edge technology brings several benefits to the table:
No Contact Power Transfer
The system eliminates vibration, reduces noise, tolerates misalignment, provides overload protection, extends motor and equipment life and reduces overall maintenance costs.
We found that our technology shows up to 70% audited energy savings in various installations.
Precise Process Control
MagnaDrive’s torque transfer system also improves product quality and optimizes process rates through precise process control.
Soft Start and Stop
The soft start and stop feature reduces the motor’s start-up power demands, and the resulting brown-outs. It also alleviates paying for peak power, allows downsizing of motors and increases motor life.
Simplicity and Ruggedness
Additionally, you can maintain the system in-house, as well as be implement it in harsh conditions.
About the Magnets We Use
Rare earth permanent magnets are an important part of our everyday lives, serving as essential components in everything from electric motors and computers to production equipment and automobiles.
These magnets are made of a combination of Neodymium, Iron and Boron (NdFeB). Rare earth technology is the most recent addition to the family of high performance permanent magnets, and only became available as recently as the 1980s.
NdFeB magnets have the highest energy product of all permanent magnets, permitting the small size and high torque transmission capability of MagnaDrive products. These magnets retain their performance in environments up to 350°F, and have a half-life of over 2,000 years.
