An electromagnet is an electromagnetic device used for transforming electrical energy into mechanical energy. Their main characteristic is their great retention force with moderate electricity consumption. They can be designed for handling and transporting any kind of metal piece and can be adapted to the special needs of each sector. The main sectors of application are:
- Safety and transport: closing devices, automatic doors or fire doors.
- Lifts and elevators: sensors, stairways, ramps or signing and transport equipment.
- Packing and packaging: labelling and packaging machinery or automatic dispensers.
- Medicine: radiology, dialysis, dispensing and artificial respiration equipment.
- Robotics and machinery: industrial robots, motors, presses, domestic appliances, textile machinery and industrial furnaces.
The electromagnet or also called solenoid is a type of magnet formed by a magnetic nucleus surrounded by a coil, through which the electric current circulates.
Electromagnets are not part of the group of permanent magnets because they have total control over the magnetic force. In this way, they can regulate their power and manage their own consumption. The advantage of this type of magnet over permanent magnets is that it allows the magnetic field of the magnet to be switched on or off as required.
For its application is necessary the use of electrical energy to maintain the magnetic field with its respective active force. As soon as the electrical energy disappears, the solenoid ceases to have a magnetic field and force.
Electromagnets or solenoids are widely used in applications that require a certain speed of reaction of the magnetic field or need to modify the power of it.
As manufacturers of electromagnets they can provide all kinds oftechnical information to their customers. If necessary, they can make modifications to their products to order according to customer requirements, with relatively short delivery times.
Types of Electromagnet - Solenoid
There are different types of electromagnets or solenoids depending on the direction of the current and the desired power:
- Electromagnet Circular Pick-up
- Electromagnet Direct Current
- Electromagnet Rectangular
- Electromagnet Activation
Solenoid Applications / Electromagnet Uses
Solenoids are everywhere in the home, offices, factories... and can be used in a wide variety of applications. Depending on its use, a direct current electromagnet or an alternating current electromagnet should be used. From a starter solenoid for an automatic door, to an industrial electromagnet for security doors in factories and department stores. The powerful electromagnet can also be used for beverage and food dispensing equipment, or for applications in sanitary or hospital machinery.
