SpinDrive - Turnkey drivetrains for industrial manufacturers

SpinDrive provides highly efficient electrical drivetrains with frictionless magnetic bearings for original equipment manufacturers (OEM).

Core components in SpinDrive’s drivetrain product are a magnetic bearing controller and a displacement sensor, which are the key parts of the AMB (active magnetic bearing) 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. The controller is designed using the latest research results to allow good manufacturability and cost efficiency. Moreover, SpinDrive’s technology provides easy integration with Internet of Things (IoT) services. The solution includes sensors and controller, which can integrate online equipment condition monitoring. The analyzed operational data will prevent equipment breakdown and eliminate associated costs.
