Magnetic levitation is an interesting concept in applications where friction and wear-particle contamination should be avoided. In this respect, a former study has shown that diamagnetic levitation, in conjunction with an electrodynamic impulse drive, is a promising solution for the design of a linear conveyor to be used in a micro-factory. In the present article the authors propose a contact-free position controlled diamagnetic linear drive optimized with regards to the power consumption and the load carrying capacity.
