Potential possibilities with pot magnets

Permanent pot magnets. Powerful magnets with a focused magnetic field. Pot magnets are often used as tools for various activities in workshops and in industry. Pot magnets daily render invaluable manual and clamping services in fixing metallic pieces of work for processes such as cutting, milling and drilling. 

Pot magnets are the unsung heroes of heavy-duty lifting applications. With their compact design and impressive strength, these magnets offer a reliable solution for securely holding, lifting, and positioning ferrous objects. Whether it’s in construction, manufacturing, or engineering, pot magnets provide the power and precision needed to get the job done safely and efficiently. Discover the versatility and reliability of pot magnets for your lifting needs today.

Technical specifications

An important property of pot magnets is the fact that the magnetic field is restricted to the pole surface – the other sides demonstrate no magnetic effects. This does protect the immediate environment from unwanted magnetic influences.

Pot magnets, also known as cup magnets, are crafted with precision to meet demanding lifting and holding requirements. These magnets typically consist of a ferromagnetic steel shell, enclosing a powerful magnet, often made of neodymium or ceramic material. Here are some common technical specifications associated with pot magnets:

  • Pull Force: This refers to the maximum force exerted by the magnet when in direct contact with a flat, ferrous surface. It is usually measured in pounds or kilograms and varies depending on the size and magnet material.
  • Coating: Pot magnets may come with various coatings such as nickel, zinc, or epoxy to protect against corrosion and abrasion, ensuring longevity and durability in harsh environments.
  • Temperature Resistance: Pot magnets are designed to withstand a range of temperatures, with some models capable of operating in extreme heat or cold conditions without compromising performance.
  • Thread Size: Many pot magnets feature a threaded hole in the center for easy mounting. The thread size and depth are essential specifications to ensure compatibility with mounting hardware.
  • Dimensions: Pot magnets come in various shapes and sizes to accommodate different applications. Common shapes include cylindrical, flat, and countersunk, with dimensions specified in diameter and height.
  • Magnetic Material: Pot magnets utilize different magnetic materials, such as neodymium (NdFeB), ferrite, or samarium cobalt (SmCo), each offering unique magnetic properties and performance characteristics.
