DESIGN AND EXPERIMENTAL EXAMINATION OF NEW TYPE OF ELECTRO-PERMANENT MAGNETIC CHUCK
Jan Bydovský – Mojmír Kollár – Klement Ondreička – Jozef Paža
The so-called electro-permanent magnetic chucks are using two types of permanent magnets with a rather different coercivity and a driving coil to change the remanent state only of the weaker of them. The two opposite stages of the chuck, clamp and release, are attained by a single current pulse. An optimized design of magnetic circuit, for effectively switching the magnetic flux in chuck, in steady-state approximation and comparison with experimental results in dynamic operation are presented.
