First images and info about the new Wadax upcoming Atlantis reference universal transport. Second image shows the THOR mechanism - core of the Atlantis transport.
It was developed using FEA (Finite Element Analysis). This kind of approach is only done on multimillion dollar projects. It allows to forecast the behaviour of the mechanical block in terms of vibrations, electromagnetic emissions, mechanical stability, etc. For instance, FEA is applied in airplane wings, Formula 1 racing cars, etc.
Some of the advantages are: 1. Predictable mechanical influence from the environment to the delicate optical pickup. Optical pickup should be immune from mechanical vibration.
2. To ensure spinning disc stability: in a CD or SACD, rotation speed is constantly changing. This generates a collateral effect. Vibrations needs to be routed away from the pickup as quickly as possible and damped in their way out. The optimisation solution is done by FEA.
3. Next is electric charge build up on a compact disc. A CD is made of policarbonate (plastics). They store static charge transferred to them. When you play a CD, the static charge starts to spin too. Lenz's Law states that any charge in motion creates a electronmagnetic wave. This wave radiates right on top of the optical to the electrical photodiode. The use of FEA created an minimisation (mechanical algorithm) by re-routing such unwanted induced currents.
4. The advance topology of Atlantis DAC power supply is fully employed to the Atlantis transport.
