Use of Magnets in Industry

Uses Of Industrial Magnets In Manufacturing

 Magnet attraction


Magnetism has for a long time been known as one of the most mysterious behaviors on earth.  As we continue to study them extensively concerning their influence more uses are discovered. At first, the use of a magnet would be seen only to influence metals that behave in fascinating ways, but we’ve come to understand that they may have countless properties; they can be used in most of our modern technology, and have a stellar use in industrial processes and manufacturing. Magnets come in different types based on their specific use. Industrial magnets are the most widely used magnets today because of the rapid growth in industrialisation.

Strong Weak Large Or Small

Industrial magnets come in a wide range of types, sizes, shapes and strengths. They are used across a diverse spectrum of industries for a similarly varied set of purposes. Specific uses of industrial magnets are based on particular requirements.

The industries that commonly require industrial magnets in their tasks are the automobile, glass, plastics, ceramics, electronics, construction, shipping, mining, pharmaceutical and food industries. They rely on magnets to facilitate production and in generating energy. Also, magnets are used to implement industry safeguards. Magnets may be used in conveyors, assemblies, plates, separators, tube gates, brakes, chutes and cranes. Magnets are used in separating ferrous impurities from non-ferrous matter during manufacture of metallic items. They as well separate metals from ore in the mining industry.

In the food and pharmaceutical industry, magnets are used to pick out any tiny iron particles that may accidentally mix with the food/medications. Magnetic sweepers in metal industries, docks and construction sites collect any waste iron scrap that would else cause accidents or puncture truck tires. By detecting any scrap metal before it causes harm, they prevent the case of extra expense being incurred in rectifying accidental problems.

Industry standards

The industrial world today strongly relies on the use of magnetism. An industrial magnet can make the work that would have required a large amount of manpower or some complicated industrial machines to accomplish easier and reduce production costs. Most manufacturing industries will need these magnets one way or the other; whether it’s during the actual manufacturing process or during loading and offloading of heavy material.


Rolls of Steel

Roll of Steel

Using a form of transport to move your raw steel goods is probably the most cost effective way of getting your steel from A-B ie. before it has been created into its end product. Manufacturing steel items due to its weight and often Bike steel bulk identity and lack of being able to  reshape it (ie not like a cardboard box) is best done as close to a port of distribution or its place of retail as possible.  These apparent links between steel manufacture and its distribution are most commonly noticed to work well in China and other successful areas of mass distribution and construction of Steel.  Transporting an item after it has been manufactured to its ‘on the shelf’ condition is way more intense a procedure than the raw fabric it once started out as ie a roll.

Construction time

For example if you where to get a fully constructed push Bike from Hull to Portsmouth it would require packaging which could consist of bubble wrap, cardboard box, labels of identification etc…  If a roll of steel was to be transported from Hull to Portsmouth in its raw condition of being a roll it would be placed onto the back of a low loader and sent via rail or road to meet its destination with the minimum of hassle and lower cost.


Roll over prefab

Now obviously some factors of cost do have to be incorporated into the production of a product, So if there is no way a Bike factory could be run and constructed in Portsmouth where as in Hull there is a Port  for easy access a rail network for good distribution, its centred in the middle of the country for its own network of customers then its wise for them to be positioned in hull not in Scotland.  So its not all about a roll of steel its also what makes sense demographically
