Linear motor

  1. Oct 3, 2012 #1
    I want to make a linear motor with some friends, just to see can we make it and how it works.
    Is there any tutorial or some guidance.
    i was thinking about a induction motor, but am not quite sure how to put the coils on the stator.

    then you are going to have to be much more specific in your question of what info you specifically need

    even using "how to make a linear motor " in google comes up with dozens of videos and other info links

    what more do you need ?
