Currently, the demand for high force density linear actuators is being met almost exclusively by employing a leadscrew and nut to transform rotary to linear motion. The paper describes an alternative technology, viz., a linear magnetic gear, which employs rare-earth magnets, and which simulation studies have shown to have a highly competitive force density.
