Mounting magnets

Mounting & holding magnets | GoudsmitMagnets

Rapid mounting with magnets. Pot magnets - also called cup magnets - are compact magnet systems with a single attracting surface.
Magnets for mounting are unique systems for hanging, connecting, holding, positioning or fixing products to any steel surface. You can also use them as wall magnets or ceiling magnets.

  • Attach without drilling or screwing
  • For picking up, positioning or holding products
  • Very powerful
  • Easy to install
  • Moveable, reusable and non-scratch

Pot magnets and round electromagnets of high quality

Compact magnetic systems with a shell of steel, brass, high-grade steel or plastic. The shell prevents dispersion of the magnetic field and increases the magnetic force of the attracting surface. The shell - or pot - also provides better corrosion and chemical resistance. The maximum operating temperature ranges from 60 to 450 °C.

Pot magnet materials

Pot magnets are available in the following materials:

  • neodymium (NdFeB)
  • samarium cobalt (SmCo)
  • AlNiCo
  • ferrite (FeB)

The maximum application temperature ranges from 60 to 450 °C.

Installation options

Pot magnets and electromagnets are available in various designs: flat, threaded bush, threaded stud, countersunk hole, through hole and threaded hole. The many different models mean there is always a suitable magnet for your application.

Conditions for optimum holding force

Clean pole surfaces and a flat workpiece ensure optimal magnetic holding force. The specified holding forces are measured under optimum conditions: perpendicular, on a piece of grade 37 steel that has been ground flat to a thickness of 5 mm, without air gap. Small cracks in magnetic material have no effect on the pull force.

In principle, pot magnets retain their magnetic strength indefinitely if not exposed to these four factors (see 'Does a magnet lose strength over time?')
