Experiments on a magnetically levitated planar actuator

Abstract

Magnetically levitated planar actuators are developed as alternatives to xy-drives constructed of stacked linear motors. Although the translator of these ironless planar actuators can move over relatively large distances in the xy-plane only, it has to be controlled in six degrees-of-freedom (DOF) because of the active magnetic bearing. The advantage of… (More)
