MagSpring Magnetic Spring by Linmot

Air-Oil Systems
Manufacturer: Linmot

Constant spring force over entire length of stroke

  • Strokes to 11.5” (290mm)
  • Forces to 13.5lb (60N)
  • No external power source required
  • Comparable to a gas pressure spring in design
  • Extremely long life with no change in force
  • Used in parallel with LinMot motors
  • Allows use of smaller motors by passively balancing application loads

MagSpring products can best be described as "magnetic springs". The term "spring" however, is to be understood to mean that MagSpring components generate a constant force over their entire working range, while the characteristic curve for a typical mechanical spring shows an increase in force with increasing displacement. The generation of force that is independent of the stroke makes MagSprings preferable for balancing weight forces in vertical drive applications
