Active Magnetic Bearings – history and new beginnings

The concept of Active Magnetic Bearings was developed in the 1930’s. One of the first applications it was used in was unranium enriching centrifuges in 1940’s. First commercial applications were launched in 1976. Nowadays you can find this technology for example in Maglev Trains, submarines, space shuttles and hundreds of thousands other applications. In this simple technology controlling plays a crucial role. Tamturbo’s know-how enables using it as a core element of Tamturbo® Touch-Free™ Technology.
