Small electromagnets find a multitude of uses in various industries.
For clamping or lifting small parts, for end-of-arm robotic applications, fire door releases, air conditioning vents, lifting small steel components and thin steel components. Small DC Electromagnets from Serpent & Dove—Applied Magnetics find their way into myriad applications.
Small electromagnets are available in sizes from 10 mm diameter and in either pure electromagnet or permanent-electro style, the latter type clamping with a permanent magnet core which releases when voltage is applied. Various hybrids are also available with features such as quick release for high speed robotic applications.
