Permanent Lifting Magnets

These compact, powerful rare earth lifting magnets are permanent magnets that have on/off functionality, but require no electricity! Not only does this reduce operating costs, but also eliminates the fear of dropping the load being lifted due to power failures.

Applications:

·Load steel plate into vertical storage racks
·Lift steel plate from vertical storage racks to horizontal machining centersor cutting tables
·Lift steel plate, rounds or billets into place for equipment/machinery manufacturing

Neo Pot Magnets

Pot magnets (also as capped or holding magnets) are assembled of a round mild steel cover, a non-ferrous insulator and a Neodymium magnet core, pressed together. There is a center hole, or a tap hole, or a tap bolt on the back of the assembly for mounting. These details are designed for affixing into a design with a screw, a bolt or other secure methods.

Applications include:

  • Magnetic holding
  • Lifting
  • Antenna Mounting
  • Positioning

Besides our standard models (Stock Sizes) listed bellow, we can make assemblies to custom designs.

Neo Pot magnet flat with bore and 90° counter bore (Countersunk Pot Magnets)

a close up of neo pot magnet flat with bore and 90 degree counter bore
illustration of neo pot magnet flat with bore and 90 degree counter bore

Also called countersunk pot magnets, they are assembled with a NdFeB ring magnet and soft steel cover. The Neodymium magnet can be Nickel or Zinc plated and the steel cover can be Nickel, Zinc or Chrome plated. This magnet is designed for screws to be used for permanent positioning with a flush screw head with the magnet. Our range of countersunk pot magnets can accommodate a wide range of screws depending on the size of the magnet.

Neodymium pot magnets with bore and a 90-degree counterbore are commonly used to incorporate magnetic attraction into everyday applications. This magnet helps non-magnetic materials, such as plastic, timber, glass, and ceramic, to attach to metal surfaces. Combined with a metal striker, this magnet is ideal for closure mechanisms in cupboards, window shutters or doors.

Uses of Neodymium Pot Magnets

Neodymium pot magnets are ideal for closing mechanisms and concealed placements, like cabinet doors, drawers, gate latches, and door holdings. They are also great for attaching shelves, signage, lighting systems, and window displays in shop fittings. These magnets are also helpful for various activities in workshops and in industry, such as holding workpieces during welding, cutting, milling or drilling.

Pot magnets can be made with a tapped hole, a countersunk hole, a counter-bored hole, a threaded stud, a threaded collar, a hook or an eyebolt for mounting and hanging a range of ferrous items.

Neodymium magnets have a high magnetic strength to size ratio for applications in limited spaces as the casing confine the magnetism to one face only. This concentrates to give the maximum holding force possible for the size of the magnet.

As neo pot magnets lack moving parts and feature a protective casing, the life of the magnet is almost unlimited with minimal maintenance required. A clean surface for the magnet side can help to guarantee reliable operation over a long time.

Note:

The rated holding force is when contact directly against mild steel 3mm thick or greater. The listed holding force is for horizontal holding (of a 3mm thick steel surface). If the magnets are positioned vertical, it is recommended to divide the holding force by 3 to counter the change in gravity and reduced friction.

The magnetic strength will be weaker if the ferrous item to be attached is an alloy, stainless steel, colourbond steel, painted, oily, rusty, or rough. If the item is thin, such as foil and sheet metal, the holding force will be negatively impacted. If any objects are in between the magnets and the item, the magnetic force will be reduced as well.

Features of Neodymium Pot Magnets

Before choosing holding pot magnets, here are the details you should understand:

Appearance of Neodymium Pot Magnets

The magnets are encapsulated within a protective metal casing on all but one side. The protective casing helps pot magnets to withstand continual impact onto a steel surface without the risk of chipping or cracking the magnet.

Dimensions of Neodymium Pot Magnets

The dimensions for Pot Magnets are measured by diameter and height. The details of features included in our standard Pot Magnet range are also included in the tables below. Customized Pot Magnets are also available.

Magnetism of Neodymium Pot Magnets

The protective steel casing of a pot magnet will force both magnetic poles out of the exposed face. The holding force in kilograms are included in the tables below.

Magnetic Work holding Squares

Our on/off magnetic workholding squares with 65kg – 450 kg holding capacity. For use in welding, woodworking or anywhere steel is used. The Squares exert a strong magnetic hold on 3 sides, and provide fast and easy multi-plane workholding for positioning steel.

Magnetic couplings

A magnetic coupling is a coupling that transfers torque from one shaft to another, but using a magnetic field rather than a physical mechanical connection.
Magnetic couplings are of considerable interest for many industrial applications because they can transmit torque from a primary driver to a follower, without mechanical contact. In particular, as they allow torque to be transmitted across a separation wall, axial permanent magnetic couplings (APMCs) are well suited for use in isolated systems such as vacuums or high-pressure vessels.

Close up of magnetic couplings
Close up of magnetic couplings

Magnetic couplings are most often used for liquid pumps and propeller systems, since a static, physical barrier can be placed between the two shafts to separate the fluid from the motor operating in air.

Halbach array

A Halbach array is a special arrangement of permanent magnets that augments the magnetic field on one side of the array while cancelling the field to near zero on the other side. This is achieved by having a spatially rotating pattern of magnetisation.
The rotating pattern of permanent magnets (on the front face; on the left, up, right, down) can be continued indefinitely and have the same effect. The effect of this arrangement is roughly similar to many horseshoe magnets placed adjacent to each other, with similar poles touching.

Linear Halbach arrays

Applications

this device is also a key component of the Inductrack Maglev train and Inductrack rocket launch system. Wherein the Halbach array repels loops of wire that form the track after the train has been accelerated to a speed able to lift.

The simplest example of a one sided flux magnet is a refrigerator magnet.

illustration of a linear halbach array

Halbach cylinder

A Halbach cylinder is a magnetized cylinder composed of ferromagnetic material producing (in the idealized case) an intense magnetic field confined entirely within the cylinder with zero field outside. The cylinders can also be magnetized such that the magnetic field is entirely outside the cylinder, with zero field inside.
These cylindrical structures are used in devices such as brushless AC motors, magnetic couplings and high field cylinders.
