Employing standard coils from its popular ‘Stubby’ electromagnet, Serpent and Dove has launched a light-weight low cost parallel pole modular system electromagnet.
Called Modular-Mag, the simple modular concept allows lifting or clamping magnets of almost any length from 150mm to 2 metres or more to be made using multiple standard cores and coils bolted between pole plates of required length to provide the required holding or lifting strength.
The simple modular construction system easily allows pole plates of a thickness to suit a particular duty, or profile pole plates to suit round or curved surfaces, to be provided.
In addition to single, two-pole configuration, Modular-Mag design also lends itself to ‘ganging’ side by side into multi-pole lifters. Capacities range from about 100kgs to over 1 tonne.
