If you are searching for an alternative to traditional work holding machinery, consider rectangular magnetic chucks from BuyMagnets.com. These rectangular magnetic chucks harness the power of permanent magnets to securely clamp and hold work pieces in place. Operation of magnetic chucks is simple—all you need to do is use the turn key mechanism to switch the magnetic chuck from “off” to “on.” This activates the permanent magnets within the confines of the chuck and allows their magnetic flux to extend out of the magnetic chuck’s housing.
Once the magnetic chuck is turned on, the magnets within become aligned with the top plate and the magnetic flux extends upward. The powerful magnetic field can now instantly attract and hold any ferrous work piece placed on the chuck’s surface. Once the piece no longer needs to be held in place, the magnetic chuck can be switched to “off” again, and the piece will instantly be released as the magnetic field holding it in place is no longer active. This makes removal quick and easy.
In comparison to traditional work holding devices, magnetic chucks offer greater versatility, improved safety, and intense precision. Because the same magnetic chuck can be used to automatically secure many different shapes and sizes of work pieces, using magnetic chucks saves operation costs, equipment costs, and operation time.
