Electromagnets (Solenoids)

Electromagnets utilise electricity to provide a strong magnetic hold in both manual and automated holding and handing applications. The magnetic field is generated once an electrical current is applied, providing you with an instant, yet controlled, magnetic attraction and release of ferrous items.

For more information on our electromagnets range, or to keep the data to hand, please view our electromagnets brochure.

Below you will find our range of easy-to-use electromagnets. These energise-to-hold magnets are also commonly known as solenoids and are available in a range of sizes from 12mm to 203mm diameter, and pull strengths from 1.8kg to 907kg.

These electro-holding magnets, as their name suggests, become magnetised when an electric current is applied. This magnetic field then completely disappears when the power is switched off. Every magnet is supplied pre-wired for attaching to a power source (not supplied); common applications for these electromagnets include access control on fire and security doors and hatches, machine guards, automated assembly lines, robotics. If you require any advice about the application of electromagnets, please call our technical sales team today on 0845 5194701.
