Electro Holding Magnets Overview
Looking for a magnet with high holding forces and a small footprint? Kendrion’s Electro Holding Magnets have variable connections and a low power consumption adding to the list of features. Some models are optimized with higher holding forces than other magnets of the same size and are commonly circular and rectangular. Rectangular Electro Holding Magnets provide a high density of force over large areas. Another element that can be utilized in the Holding Magnet product group is the Permanent Electro Holding Magnet that is capable of currentless holding. This is very energy-efficient because the magnet is only briefly energized to release the work piece. The Permanent Electro Holding Magnet is used in place of a typical Electro Holding Magnet when there are long holding times and the holding needs to be reliable and safely held during power failures. Between the two different types of holding magnets there is something for any need. Some common usages for this product are in safety engineering, automation technology, and the medical industry.
