US made active magnetic bearings now available in the UK

05 April 2012

Synchrony is a developer and supplier of active magnetic bearings, high-speed motors and generators. With product brands Fusion and NovaGlide magnetic bearings, NovaDrive high-speed motors and NovaGen high-speed generators, Synchrony can significantly improve the performance, reliability, and environmental friendliness of rotating machinery. Its products are now available in the UK from R A Rodriguez.

Synchrony’s magnetic bearings are now a cost-effective alternative to oil-lubricated alternatives. The elimination of an oil lubrication system alone can make a Synchrony magnetic bearing the best choice from a cost point of view.

Vibration and position monitoring capabilities of the bearing can remove the need for expensive vibration monitoring equipment, and there are also large operating cost advantages to be gained resulting from the elimination of frictional losses, reduced maintenance and improved machine reliability.


Two, innovative product ranges are central to the Synchrony magnetic bearing programme, now available from R A Rodriguez. The first is Fusion whose controls are built into the magnetic bearing housing itself, considerably reducing the complexity and size of the bearing compared with traditional products of this type.

And for applications that require external controls, the NovaGlide magnetic bearings are also stocked. This design also brings significant design flexibility as its controls are so small and simple, they can be mounted either on or near the machine.
