Age of Magnetism advancing with development of magnetic levitating gear making lubrication obsolete

12/01/2014 - 00:00

  Researchers from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) are developing a new transmission mechanism with no touching parts, based on magnetic forces which prevent friction and wear and make lubrication unnecessary. It can be applied in space travel and exploration but has also been adapted for use in other areas, such as the railroad and aircraft industries.<br><br><a href="">READ MORE ON UNIVERSIDAD CARLOS III DE MADRID</a><br><br>Ref: <a href="">Design and analysis of a non-hysteretic passive magnetic linear bearing for cryogenic environments</a>.  Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part J: Journal of Engineering Tribology October 2014 vol. 228 no. 10 1071-1079
