Options and special information
- Pole extension
The use of pole extensions alters the magnetic flux and can affect the holding force if incorrectly designed. Pole extensions also affect component detection. Workpieces may no longer be detected.
Each activation increases the internal temperature of the product. Overheating reduces the magnetic characteristics and can destroy the product. The number of activations per minute must be adjusted so that the maximum permissible product temperature is not reached.
- Material dependence
The product is designed to hold almost all ferromagnetic materials. The achievable holding force depends, among other things, on the respective workpiece material. Accordingly, with some ferromagnetic materials a reduction in the nominal holding force can be expected.
- Material efficiency
Conventional steel (Fe 360) 100%, ferromagnetic crude steel (10-C15) 90%, tool, case-hardened and sectional steels 70 - 80%, magnetic stainless steel 65%, cast iron 50%
- Magnetic field evaluation
Due to occupational safety and the danger from electromagnetic fields, the EMH was subjected to a magnetic field evaluation. For more information, please contact us.
