  • What Is an Electromagnet?

    What Is an Electromagnet?0

    From stereo speakers and computer hard drives to heavy lifting devices and power generators, electromagnets are used in a variety of applications. They are called “electromagnets” because they rely on an electrical current to produce a magnetic field. This is in stark contrast to conventional magnets, also known as permanent magnets, that do not rely

  • Lift Magnet Safety

    Lift Magnet Safety0

    Lift magnets have been a part of material handling in American manufacturing for over 75 years. Most common are mechanically operated magnets that switch “on” or “off” by physically changing the Polarity of the lifting magnets. This is done by the operating of a handle on the magnet casing. These require no outside power source
