Technology Leadership

Technology leadership is exemplified with every Waukesha magnetic bearing system.

With the industry’s most sophisticated software and wide range of controllers, Waukesha provides remote commissioning, diagnostics and tuning without the need for onsite customer support

This enables customers to decrease the complexity and total cost of ownership of their magnetic bearing system – and increase the reliability and availability of their machinery.

Whether connecting from England to China, or anywhere else, . we have the ability to monitor the information coming from the rotor bearing system.

“What that gives you is the ability to assess the condition not only of the magnetic bearing system, but your machinery, and even your process as well.”

The benefits of these remote connectivity capabilities can be seen in the initial commissioning and subsequent troubleshooting of the machine for many years to come.

“The most important thing today to our customers is really reliability and availability. We have made great investments in development and test rigs to ensure we can produce the most reliable equipment in the field today.

Waukesha Magnetic Bearings robust systems have achieved availability of 99.9% making us the standard for mission critical applications.

Our auxiliary bearing designs offer unparalleled machine protection - supporting the rotor when the machine is at rest, accommodating overloads, and preventing damage to the machine components in the event of a system fault.

Robust and reliable, Waukesha’s proprietary RDS auxiliary bearing designs offer unmatched investment protection. And the built in functionality to observe the service condition significantly reduces the risk of unplanned downtime.

The depth of engineering expertise that we have at Waukesha is unrivaled in the industry.

“We have a pool of PHD qualified specialists in various disciplines, but we also bring in people who are trained in individual disciplines and cross train them so that they’re fully conversant with all the aspects of magnetic bearing technology.”

“The team at Waukesha was drawn here by their enthusiasm for this technology and we’re proud to be applying this technology for critical applications around the world.”
