Heavy Duty Magnets

Heavy duty magnets demand respect. To prove this point, the letters of the word, R.E.S.P.E.C.T. spell out their powers. They also spell out why industrial designers specify them in heavy kit manufacturing.

Heavy duty magnets housed in articulated components in cranes, trains, and heavy machinery Regulate the speed at which mechanical power is expressed or withdrawn. These regulatory limits are Enforced by torque limiters or a magnetic overload clutch. Once mechanical force breaches the designers’ pre-determined threshold these magnetic couplings dump mechanical load to protect motors and gearings. Returning equipment to a risk free state.

Heavy duty magnets discriminate with extreme prejudice. That is, they are very Specific in what materials they do, or do not, attract or repel. This allows designers to design highly intuitive assemblages. By specifying which components are to be made of what type of material, magnetic agency can be exploited for optimal mechanical performance.

Designers install heavy duty magnets as gate open/gate close protocols on industrial kit because of their high degree of Predictability. Pull or release forces for magnets are determined at point of manufacture and remain stable. Pure instinct for task. Magnets perform come hell or high water.

Magnets embed an Efficiency dividend via their predictability and durability. Magnets are Compatible with all material, especially plastics because they do not puncture to fasten. The Territorial nature of a magnetic field, the closer in proximity the greater the pressure, is another intuitive, graduated, predictable force designers can exploit. Magnets help mechanisms express power in a manner that is nuanced and predictable. Or respectful.
