Magnetic Bearings – The mechanical engineer’s guide

As the name suggests magnetic bearings use magnetic levitation to support the rotating shafts, without directly contacting them, thus there is no friction. As we all know, less friction means less energy wasted and greater overall efficiency. The very first patent relating to the magnetic suspension of rotating elements was submitted in the 1940s. However, …
