MAG SOAR was incorporated in 2013 as a technology-based spin-off from the FP7 Space project MAGDRIVE. Its core business is based on magnetic contactless mechanisms for use in extreme conditions like those in space. MAG SOAR mechanisms have a set of key properties: they do not produce debris, do not need lubrication, do not wear out, are intrinsically immune to overloads and present linear stiffness with zero backlash. In 2014, MAG SOAR engineers – using this last property – envisaged a completely new device that will completely change the technology for attenuation of vibrations. Using linear magneto-mechanisms they found a way to match mechanical impedances, therefore optimising the performance of all kind of devices for vibration control.

What if a planetary exploration mission were jeopardised by a stuck axle or a misaligned gear cog? What if grease clogged up a delicate sensor on a lunar rover? These are some of the nightmare scenarios researchers in Madrid claim to have banished with the successful development of a drive mechanism in which none of the mechanical parts actually touch each other.

Spanish researchers from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid are in the process of developing an innovative magnetic levitating transmission mechanism that could advance space travel and exploration as well as the railroad and aircraft industries.

Spanish engineers claim a new levitating transmission system developed for space applications could be used across many sectors. It´s the sound every mechanic and technician dreads: the shriek of misaligned gears that tells you that something is very wrong in the gearbox. It heralds a probable equipment breakdown, outrages and expensive repairs.

HA SIDO ELEGIDO EL PROYECTO CON MEJORES RESULTADOS ENTRE 22 PROYECTOS EUROPEOS.

El proyecto Z-Damper, en el que participa la Universidad de Alcalá (UAH), ha diseñado, desarrollado y probado una tecnología revolucionaria de control de vibraciones en los aviones con funcionamiento óptimo a temperaturas extremas.

Un equipo de investigación de la Universidad de Alcalá, liderado por José Luis Pérez Díaz, y la pyme de alta tecnología MAG SOAR son los promotores del proyecto Z-DAMPER, que propone una tecnología prometedora para el aislamiento de vibraciones, sobre todo en el ámbito aeroespacial, donde el amortiguamiento efectivo de las vibraciones en las estructuras aerospaciales es una de las claves para reducir de forma efectiva los niveles de ruido y agentes contaminantes.
