One of the keys to the success and strong performance of Permadur’s permanent lifting magnets is their fundamental magnetic material: Neodymium, which has a number of properties that make it the ideal magnet for use as permanent lifting magnets in sheet handling and manufacturing applications. These properties include:
- Serious magnetic strength. Neodymium is the strongest permanent magnet that is commercially available. These magnets have a high saturation of magnetization, and are therefore able to store more magnetic energy and exert more of that energy on a material than other magnets. A neodymium magnet is able to attract 1,000 times its own weight. What that means to you is, a Permadur permanent lifting magnet can deliver maximum power over a maximum lifespan.
- Won’t lose strength. Neodymium magnets are highly resistant to demagnetization – so when kept in proper conditions and care, the material will essentially never lose any of its magnetic power.
- Cost effective. Especially when considering the superior lifting capacity of a neodymium magnet, the material’s cost is very reasonable, and when properly cared for, the material is extremely durable (the same can be said for Permadur’s products themselves!)
Using the best materials in our products is just one factor in the equation of how Permadur builds world-class below-the-hook lifting solutions. We offer both permanent magnet and vacuum-based lifting systems, and offer engineering and maintenance/repair services to help you make the most of your facilities and equipment.
