Hermann Kemper (5 April 1892 – 13 July 1977) was the first scientist to exhibit the use of the magnetic levitation fields for transportation by combining the advantages of aircrafts and trains.

In early 1900’s two Americans, Robert Goddard and Emile Bachelet proposed the concept of utilizing the magnetic levitation technology for high speed transport. But no practical technique could be followed as the technology had limitations in those times.

Herman Kemper started his research on magnetic levitation in 1922. After working for about 10 years he succeeded in creating a technical concept for a floating vehicle based on the principle of electromagnetic attraction in 1933. He applied for patent in Berlin and received it in 1934 under the number 643316. The patent described his invention as a “monorail vehicle with no wheels attached”. It means a floating vehicle based on levitation using electromagnets in the track.

Following his inventions, HERMANN KEMPER focus on extensive amount of research about the magnetic levitation technology in magnetic levitation bearings, magnetic levitation motors and magnetic levitation blower and compressors, which guarantee HERMANN KEMPER pioneers in the field.
