MagSpring products are best described by the term "magnetic spring". The term "spring", however must be understood
in the sense that MagSpring components exert a constant force over their entire working range, whereas a typical
characteristic curve for a mechanical spring has the force increasing as a function of displacement. Generating a force
that is independent of displacement makes MagSprings an excellent choice for compensating for weight forces in
vertical drive arrangements.

The product consists of two main components. The stator surrounds the centrally located slider. Depending on the force
rating of the MagSpring, permanent magnets are located either in the stator, in the slider, or in both components. The
slider is supported by an integrated sliding bearing, so that MagSprings can be used similarly to gas pressure springs.

Constant force over the entire stroke

Its functionality is based on the attractive force of permanent magnets. This means that no power supply is needed
(electrical power, compressed air, etc.), making even safety-related applications possible. Due to the special design of
the flux guiding components and the magnets, the severely non-linear relationship between force and displacement in
arrangements of magnets and iron is transformed into a constant force curve.

Purely passive, requiring neither electrical power nor compressed air

Forces up to 60 N
Strokes up to 290 mm
Can be combined with H-guide
Also suitable for dynamic motions
Simple design
Fail safe functionality and weight compensation

The constant force over the entire range of the stroke makes it an excellent fail safe and weight compensation when
installed vertically. Thanks to the MagSpring providing weight compensation, the linear motor is used only for
positioning and for applying dynamic forces, so it can be sized correspondingly smaller.

Product benefits
Thanks to the constant force to displacement curve, many other applications are possible in addition to weight
compensation for a vertical installation. For example, generating a constant press force regardless of location, applying
a constant supporting force over a wide stroke range, or applying a force on only one side for complex drive tasks.


The stators can be mounted using either the fine thread or a clamp. A suitable mounting flange is available for each of
the two sizes. When attaching the slider to the load mass, take care to compensate for parallel alignment errors with a
flexible mounting method.

Weight compensation

For a vertical installation, linear motors and other direct drives must continuously apply a constant force in order to act
against the force of gravity. With a MagSpring installed in parallel with the linear motor, the weight can be passively
compensated. The linear motor is used only for the actual positioning or for applying the dynamic forces, and can be
sized correspondingly smaller.

Safe maintenance position

If the electrical power supply is interrupted, the MagSpring also prevents vertical axes from dropping down to their
bottom stop position. If the force of the MagSpring is greater than the force of gravity, then the axis is drawn up to the
top end position.

Applying constant force

Thanks to the constant force to displacement curve, many other applications are possible, such as applying a constant
press force regardless of position, applying a constant retaining force over a large stroke range, or one-sided force
support in drive tasks. The e ective force is in the range of +/-10% of the nominal force.

Holding function (power o )

Because MagSprings are purely passive elements, a defined function or location of a device can be ensured if the power
is cut o . For example, li ing a gripper or a press head in a vertical arrangement, or retracting or extending a pusher with
a constant force.
