Title: Pasivno magnetno vodilo z mehanizmom ustavljanja in pozicioniranja (SI), Passive magnetic cradle with thwe mechanism of stopping and positioning (ENG)
Description: The invention relates to the construction of a three-way sliding mechanism using magnetism, with NdFeB magnets in an antipolar geometry, which provides a minimum coefficient of friction while moving the sliding element and controlled stopping thereof in predetermined positions. The sliding, sliding and stopping of the sliding element at precisely determined points is enabled by reflective forces between the magnets attached to the upper two pairs of magnetic rails. In this way, levitation of sliding elements of larger masses is also enabled. The stabilization of the sliding element in the transverse direction to the direction of sliding is facilitated by attractive forces between the magnets attached to the pair of lower magnetic rails.
