Title

Voice Coil Actuator

The Voice Coil Actuator is a high precision motion control device. These actuators are capable of both low speed, low acceleration movements as well as high speed, high acceleration movements. Programmable servo controls allow the actuator to carry out a move profile as required. Its primary advantage over other motion control devices is that the load is directly coupled to the actuator.

The Bath Cube Experiment (T.E.A.M. Problem 5)

Four aluminum blocks are spaced symmetrically between the poles of an electromagnet. A MMF of 1000 A-Turns is applied between the upper pole and the lower pole. The magnetic field is then measured along contours on the surface of the lower pole.

Slot Configurations for Reducing Stray Losses (T.E.A.M. Problem 21a)

This example involves four different configurations of shielding steel plate: a plate with no slots, one slot, two slots, and three slots. The magnetic field density is measured along contours on the surface of the plate, and compared with measured results.

Rectangular Slot in a Thick Plate: a Problem in Non-destructive Evaluation (T.E.A.M. Problem 15)

In order to detect flaws, sensor problems require the accurate calculation of induced eddy currents. MagNet for SOLIDWORKS AC Time Harmonic solver automatically calculates these eddy currents. The results presented compare published experimental data demonstrating the accuracy of the software.

Rare Earth MRI Magnet Assembly

Magnetic Resonance Imaging [MRI] is a non-invasive mechanism for assessing the nature of materials. Whether one desires to monitor the fat content in a cookie mixture, or review potential structural damage to a human joint, MRI equipment is readily available.

Nonlinear Time-Transient in Switched Reluctance Motors (T.E.A.M. Problem 24)

This is a test rig configuration similar to a switched reluctance machine. It is made of solid medium-carbon steel and mounted in a nonmagnetic cage which can rotate about a stainless steel shaft. This is a nonlinear transient problem, which was simulated using MagNet for SOLIDWORKS transient solver.

Impact of Shield Thickness on Reducing Stray Losses (T.E.A.M. Problem 21c)

There are two types of shields in this benchmark: one single silicon steel sheet or copper plate (M1 or EM1), or three separated silicon steel sheets or plates M2 or EM2). The transformer wall is made out of magnetic steel.

Impact of Materials on Reducing Stray Losses (T.E.A.M. Problem 21b)

This examples involves three different configurations of plates: one magnetic and one non-magnetic plate, two magnetic plates and two non-magnetic plates. The flux density is measured along contours on the plates’ surface and compared with measured results.
