What Are the Benefits of Electromagnets?

Electromagnets are a combination of electricity and magnetism. In an electromagnet, the magnetic field is produced by an electric current and disappears when the magnet is turned off. Through controlled use of electricity, the electromagnet can attract and hold heavy iron, scrap steel and other ferrous materials. The primary benefit of an electromagnet over a standard magnet is that the strength can be controlled. Our line of electromagnets will safely pick-up and move your material.
