    Levitated metal casting and superconducting elevators are but two of the potential applications of Superconducting Cylindrical Linear Induction Motors (SCLIMs). We are constructing a model device to clarify the behavior of AC superconducting windings in a realistic operational environment of electrical rotating machines. This paper presents design, construction, and experimental results of the model SCLIM.
