Holding Magnets from Kendrion are specially designed holding systems which are used in the industrial lifting technology, in elevator brakes and for machine safety. Furthermore, they serve as door holding devices for fire-protection. The magnets excel by high magnetic holding forces and individual design for application.
A holding magnet is created from a coil of wire which acts as a magnet when an electric current passes through it. Usually, holding magnet is wrapped around a core of ferromagnetic material like steel, which enhances the magnetic field produced by the coil. A permanent holding magnet is an object made from material that is magnetized and generates a permanent magnetic field at the holding surface. A permanent magnet, will always have a magnetic field and display magnetic behaviour at all times. This particular magnet system requires energy for a short time to release parts, making it a very energy-efficient choice.
