Magnets

A magnet produces a magnetic field and can be used in positioning and clamping applications. With high pull force and different shapes available, these magnets are suitable for a variety of purposes. From ring magnets with threaded holes for secure mating, to magnets with inbuilt hooks for easy re-positioning in fixing applications, the RS range of magnets are highly versatile, with pot magnets, bar magnets and horseshoe shapes available. High strength magnets are also available for lifting and pulling applications.

Neodymium magnets are permanent magnets composed of neodymium, Iron and boron. They have the strongest magnetic material properties and any kind of ferromagnetic material will attract to these magnets.

What are magnets made from?

Magnets are made from ferromagnetic metals which can include iron and nickel. Ferromagnetic materials can fall into ’soft’ materials like iron which can be magnetised but do not stay magnetised and ’hard’ materials like ferrite, which can stay magnetised.

What does Pull force mean?

Pull force is a reading that relates to the power of a magnet and its ability to move (push or pull) other objects. The pull force of a magnet is determined by the amount of force that would be required to break the magnet free if it was attached to a steel plate.

What is Gauss?

Gauss is a unit of a measurement that determines the strength of the magnetic field produced by a magnet. The higher the value the more lines of magnetism emitted by the magnet.

Which metals are magnetic?

Magnetic materials are made of metal but not all metals are magnetic. Iron is magnetic and steel contains iron so these metals will be attracted to a magnet. Metals like aluminium, copper, gold and silver are not magnetic.
