Ferrite Pot Magnets
Ferrite pot magnets, also known as holding magnets, are a great choice for clamping, gripping and fixing components together. Made from a ferrite magnet encased in a steel shell, these ultra-strong magnets can withstand ongoing impact without chipping or cracking. Designed to clamp directly onto a steel surface, ferrite pot magnets are ideally suited to industrial applications, such as the steel industry or in tool shops.
Unlike other ferrite magnets, the active magnetism is confined to one face of the ferrite pot magnet, creating a powerful clamping force. The steel casing concentrates the flux on the active face of the pot magnet, making it up to five times stronger than a normal ferrite magnet. Complete with fixing arrangements such as central countersunk holes, these magnets can be attached to non-magnetic surfaces with a screw or bolt.
Due to their affordability, ferrite magnets are often chosen when a stronger rare-earth magnet isn’t needed. Although they only operate at roughly one-tenth of the strength of magnets like neodymium, they can offer reasonable pull for a fraction of the price. They’re also extremely resistant to corrosion and are able to withstand temperatures of up to 250°C, making them one of the most popular permanent magnets for everyday applications.
At MagDev, we engineer a range of ferrite pot magnets, including options with tapped, countersunk or threaded holes. We also offer bespoke ferrite magnets with a variety of attachments such as hooks, eyebolts and cable ties, ideal for hanging on different surfaces. Whatever your project or industry, we’re sure to have a magnetic solution to suit.
