Magnetic Gears Main Advantages
A contactless alternative
In contrast to conventional gears, MAG SOAR´s magnetic gears do not present contact between teeth, therefore eliminating the requirements of lubrication, suppressing wear and minimizing maintenance.
High torque capacity
Thanks to years of intensive research, MAG SOAR has accomplished outstanding torque capacity, in some cases exceeding the values provided by its mechanical competitors.
If the demanded output torque overpasses the maximum design torque the system «slips» but nothing breaks down. Once the overload situation is solved, normal operation is completely recovered.
World record in reduction ratio
Optimagdrive last manufacture has achieved the highest reduction ratio ever reached by a magnetic drive. The tests have demonstrated a reduction ratio of 44. A wide range of high reduction ratios are available to meet almost all applications requirements.
MAG SOAR magnetic gears provide smooth and very accurate motion and zero-backlash between the teeth.
Harmonic and vibration isolation
MAG SOAR gearbox also provides harmonic and vibration isolation between the input and the output stages and quiet operation.
The efficiency of the gearbox can be designed to reach equivalent values to those in electric motors, even in the most demanding environmental conditions. Extreme temperature, high vacuum, and radiation resistance models are available under request.
It is also reversible and can be used as a multiplication device. Linear magnetic gearboxes and displacement multipliers are also available.
