Z-Damper: A new technology for vibration control at extreme temperatures

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 a structure. […]

Extreme environment test bench for dampers ready for operation

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. […]

Another step forward for Levisolator

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 consortium […]

The end of wear and lubrication

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 geared […]

MAG SOAR BLOG TAKES OFF!

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 the […]
