High-speed drivetrain with active magnetic bearings
SpinDrive provides high efficient turn-key drivetrains for OEMs, using electrical machine and active magnetic bearings.
SpinDrive provides turn-key drivetrains including the following components: 1. High-speed electrical machines have a special construction and their rotational speed is up to 50 times higher than the conventional ones. These machines enable a direct connection between the machine and the working tool increasing system efficiency. 2. Active Magnetic Bearings (AMBs) are levitating the rotational part of the machine, totally eliminating friction. AMB technology is among the few offerings that can enable completely oil-free compressed air according to ISO 8573-1 Class 0, and the only one that can do that without massive maintenance requirements. Therefore, no lubricant is needed and efficiency is higher. 3. Condition monitoring system with built-in sensors is constantly gathering data about the equipment status and enabling predictive maintenance. Core components in SpinDrive’s drivetrain products are a magnetic bearing controller and a displacement sensor, which are the key parts of the AMB system. Magnetic bearing controller constructs of control and power electronics packaged in a compact embedded high-performance device. The controller measures machine operation using a displacement sensor up to 100 000 times in a second and sends suitable control commands to the magnetic bearing coils accordingly. Moreover, SpinDrive’s technology provides easy integration with Internet of Things (IoT) services. Our product includes sensors and controller, which can integrate online equipment condition monitoring. The analyzed operational data will allow preventing customer’s equipment breakdown and eliminate associated costs.
