Design of an Improved Magnet Array for a Linear Synchronous Motor with Backward Compatibility
A design update to improve the manufacturability of an existing product is clearly beneficial, but must be implemented in a manner that maintains backward compatibility with both the mechanical fit and the magnetic performance of the prior design. This presentation discusses the analysis conducted to determine the viability of a design change, as well as how optimal choices for material properties and dimensions for the magnet array components were derived using MagNet FEA tools from Infolytica.
