Rectangular electromagnets (sometimes also called block electromagnets). Our standard rectangular electromagnets are specially designed for direct and powerful holding force and performance. We design and sell custom rectangular electromagnets as well. Please use the contact form to ask for quotation or more information about our electromagnets.
An electromagnet in a rectangular or box shape is used for holding, carrying, and fixing ferromagnetic work pieces. Rectangular electromagnets can hold and release ferrous material on command simply by turning the current on and off.
Flat-faced electromagnets should be used while in contact with the metal.
These electromagnets are not used over an air gap, and the magnetic field is kind of “flat” and unsuitable to work over an air gap.
Our standard block electromagnets can also give you some clue as o the range of holding power/size that could be achieved with these types of electromagnets. Magma can design custom-made block electromagnets according to customer requests (different sizes, voltages, and more). Magma standard rectangular electromagnets’ maximum length is 1000mm.
