Automotive industry

Quality and safety are the most important requirements in the automotive industry. Permanent magnets are an important component for cars, machines or systems. Proper magnet measurements ensure optimal operation and prevent downtime.

Magnets also provide a solution when it comes to production processes. Such as for the magnetic robot handling of sheet steel, separating steel plates, or disposing of steel debris.

Permanent magnets

From door locks to sunroofs, ABS, loudspeakers, windshield wipers and electric windows: permanent magnets are indispensable in a car. Given the fact that safety is always the highest priority in this area, quality is key.

Goudsmit delivers strong permanent magnets in various material types, including neodymium (NdFeB), samarium cobalt (SmCo), ferrite, AlNiCo and plastic-bonded magnets. You can buy permanent magnets in several shapes, like disc magnets, ring magnets, block- and barmagnets, but also very small magnets from a good an reliable source.

Magnetic solutions

Our magnetic grippers handle sheet steel in automated processes in laser cutting machines, robotic press brake bending cells and press transfer systems. Watch this video.

We also have a solution for separating sticky or oily steel plates: magnetic sheet separators. This prevents picking up two plates and saves time.

Fast and precise placement of sheet steel in processing machines is possible with timing belt magnet conveyors.
