MagnaDrive Acquires Patent-Dec 2014
MagnaDrive Expands Patent Portfolio
WOODINVILLE, Washington, 12/15/14 –As part of MagnaDrive’s commitment to be
the technology leader for permanent magnet torque transfer solutions we’re pleased to
announce the closing of negotiations to further expand our owned patent portfolio.
“As the number of applications for non-contact torque transfer continues to expand, we
remain committed to being on the forefront of research and development for this highly
innovative technology” commented Paul Humphreys, VP Sales and Marketing, adding,
“with this latest acquisition, we are solidifying our intellectual property position.” More
specifically, MagnaDrive has now obtained outright ownership of the key adjustable
magnetic coupler patents issued in Australia, Canada, China, Japan, Korea and Mexico as
well as patents for additional technology in China.
Compared to traditional coupling solutions, MagnaDrive’s products provide torque
transfer without a physical contact. This minimizes destructive vibrations and also helps
to reduce the amount of energy consumed due to the inherent slip associated with the
relative motion of magnetic rotors and the non-ferrous conductor assemblies integrated
into all our products.
