This week, the Clean Sky 1 Closing Event “Europe,Read More
CLEAN SKY is right now the largest European research H2020 funded program developing innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at reducing C02, gas emission and noise level produced by aircraft. This nomination confirms the big potential of Z-DAMPER for the control of vibrations at high temperatures and low frequencies. Z-Damper is a magneto mechanism that matches mechanicalRead More
SIROM is a European Commission H2020 project with the objective of developing a standard set of connections that allow coupling of payload to the manipulators and payloads to other payloads. These robotic manipulators or robot arms are increasingly being used in complex in-orbit infrastructures or space exploration due to its effectiveness and optimum performance inRead More
Z-Damper is a vibration isolation system able to act as a dissipater and also to enhance the performance of any damping solution by mechanical impedance coupling. This magneto mechanism is adaptable to low and high ranges of frequencies and it can substitute tuned vibration absorbers currently being used for the vibration control in automotive, energyRead More
Optimagdrive has currently achieved the highest reduction ratio ever reached by a magnetic drive. The tests have demonstrated a reduction ratio of 75. Besides, MAG SOAR engineers have managed to reduce the system weight maintaining high torque levels. This achievement confirms that this passive magnetic technology is ready to replace traditional mechanical gears in applicationsRead More
Conventional vibration control technologies are still highly limited. Current damping systems fail to deal with low frequency ranges and extreme temperature scenarios. In order to fill that gap MAG SOAR has developed a new technology able to enhance the performance of any vibration damping system by mechanical impedance coupling. Impedance is a term usually appliedRead More
Madrid-18/07/2016-MAG SOAR in collaboration with UAH develops a completely innovative system to face vibration problems by mechanical impedance matching Vibration control of buildings, airplanes, cars and other kinds of systems and structures is an extremely important issue in constant evolution. Insufficient control of vibration propagation can cause the critical failure and ultimately, the total breakage of an structure.Read More
MAG SOAR technical director exposed the project last advances to the interested parties The Workshop on Gear Technology and Mechanisms Final presentation took place on ESA´s technical heart and incubator of the European space effort: The European Space Research and Technology Center, ESTEC, located in Noordwijk. (Netherlands) The objective of the Workshop Gear Technology wasRead More
The bench is designed for testing dampers performance at extreme temperature between -200ºC and 300ºC and at a frequency range of 0 to 50 Hz. Vibration isolation is a common denominator issue in areas such as aerospace, defence, automotive, industry or energy. Unfortunately for engine manufacturers, currently available dampers are incapable of handling temperatures higher than 100ºC.Read More
ESA visits MAG SOAR facilities to monitor the recent advances of the project Levisolator is creating a completely new support system based on magnetic bearings technology that would eventually be installed on the cryostat of ESA ATHENA mission, an advanced X-ray telescoped designed to address the Cosmic Vision gas structures. MAG SOAR leads a consortiumRead More
Levitating mechanical supports may seem a science fiction or futuristic reality. Nevertheless, magnetic contactless systems are already available and capable of dealing with most of the problems bound to traditional mechanic devices. MAG SOAR products and services explore all the possibilities offered by this clear breaktrough in nowadays technology. NO WEAR The substitution of gearedRead More
The magnetic energy´s faculties can be breathtaking. One of the most impressive proofs of this is the phenomenum know as the Northen Ligths, caused by the collision between the earth´s magnetic field and the solar wind. The acelerated electrons crushing against the atmosphere happen to offer us one of the most beautiful spectacles in theRead More
