Ferrofluid bearings provide a cheap and passive alternative to contactless bearings such as magnetic bearings and fluid bearings. The absence of stick-slip and the low viscous friction make them interesting for high precision applications. Despite the theoretical models available in literature, the number of design rules for ferrofluid bearings...

A ferrofluid pocket bearings is a type of hydrostatic bearing that uses a ferrofluid seal to encapsulate a pocket of air to carry a load. Their properties, combining a high stiffness with low (viscous) friction and absence of stick-slip, make them interesting for applications that require fast and high precision positioning. Knowledge on the...

A ferrofluid is a fluid with paramagnetic properties while having a colloidal stability. This can be used to obtain a hydrostatic type of bearing that distinguishes itself from other bearings by its compactness, inherent stability, low (viscous) friction, absence of pumps and absence of stick-slip. These properties, together with its low price,...
