Build Your Own Linear Motor Kit

by Artec Educational

 

Unlike ordinary motors that generate power in a circular manner, a linear motor moves and produces power in a straight line. Linear motors are made by combining a gear with a shaft or by wrapping a cable around the shaft. A linear motor generates only linear motion. Linear motor cars and trains generate a linear motion by switching the poles of magnets lined up beneath them at a high speed. Doing this generates a pushing and pulling force. 

With Artec's linear motor kit, you can enjoy learning about how current, magnetic fields, and electromagnetic forces interact to create motion while constructing your own linear motor. When you apply current to the rails, you can see the aluminum pipe being pushed one way. Reverse the magnetic polarity of the rails and watch the aluminum pipe stop and roll the opposite way. 

Artec's line of science educational supplies for classrooms are a great source for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education and curriculum development for elementary, middle, and high schools. Artec is dedicated to developing a hands-on educational experience through their fun and innovative line of products.
