Elesa is promoting its permanent magnets, which offer a simple way of providing temporary fixing for workpieces, instruments, gauges, covers, doors, signs or drawers. They offer a range of closure from low to very high adhesive force in a very small footprint – giving easy manual placement or concealed closure if required. Temporary fixing with high power magnets can provide permanent options, quickly adjusted or removed completely.
For example, Elesa’s range of high-quality permanent magnets in sintered hard ferrite, Aluminium nickel cobalt (AINiCo), Samarium cobalt (SmCo) and Neodymium iron boron (NdFeB) are structured to have one adhesive surface only with poles optimised and arranged in such a way that the whole magnetic energy is focused on the adhesive surface. The effect in the area of the magnetic field is limited by a shielded system, avoiding the magnetisation of the surrounding objects.
Neodymium magnets are suitable for location and temporary fixing of workpieces or panels or for sensor holding, e.g. on conveyors or other machinery. Moving down the scale, applications can be as varied as supermarket labelling, locating presentation materials, white boards, cabinet door closure or magnetic filtration, e.g. of metal particles in engine sumps or in machinery and equipment.
These high-quality permanent magnets are available in flat format with or without, steel or stainless steel housings in lacquer or thermoplastic coating and in cylinder format with brass housed sandwich configuration. U Magnets and cylinder magnets in red lacquer with pass-through facility are also part of the standard series.
