Auxiliary bearings support the rotor when the machine is stationary, accommodate overloads, and support the rotor in the event of system fault. Our auxiliary bearing options include stator-mounted ball bearings, rotor-mounted ball bearings, and bushing type bearings, all backed by a full-speed landing test.

In an active magnetic bearing system, auxiliary bearings support the rotor when the machine is stationary, accommodate overloads, and support the rotor in the event of system fault.

Waukesha Magnetic Bearings offers a range of auxiliary bearing options, all of which are backed by a full-speed landing test.

  • Stator-mounted ball bearings – a compact design typically suited to high-speed machines and supercritical rotors
  • Rotor-mounted ball bearings – a hybrid system typically suited to medium-speed machines and flexible rotors
  • Bushing type bearings – specialized RDS® auxiliary bearings offering reliable condition monitoring and lower sensitivity to contaminants
