Electromagnets require the use of electrical current to create the magnetic field. The most common versions use DC current and require an external power source. They excel at lifting and holding, but require flat clean surfaces for optimum performance.
More About Electromagnets
Electromagnets fall under the temporary magnet category- their magnetic field is produced by an electric current, and therefore be turned off and on.
Their common applications include lifting, holding and moving items in an industrial setting, and also within electronics such as televisions and computer disks.
While we specialize in servicing the automotive, aerospace, electronics and heavy steel fabrication industries, we're able to help clients in any line of work find the right solution for their requirements.
These products are commonly used in the following industries:
- Heavy machinery
- Security/access control
High Quality Industrial Magnets
Since electromagnets play such an important role, it is critical to purchase from a reputable supplier. We stock standard products that pull up to 1100 lbs, and can provide higher strength options on special order.
Jobmaster not only supplies quality products, but we also design and manufacture them in-house, allowing us to meet any demands for custom or large orders quickly. Our team of design professionals and engineers uses a rigorous quality-control process that exposes prototypes to multi-point inspections, thus ensuring complete quality, durability and reliability.
