Permeability Lab Opens
DocMagnet Inc.,has opened their Materials Permeability Lab to test ferromagnetic materials for magnetic susceptibility. The ability of a magnet to hold on to a material is completely reliant on the permeability. This permeability can vary significantly across alloys due to treatment method and chemical composition.
Are you curious as to whether your material can be held with a magnet reducing machining time and increasing productivity?
Michael Gaunce, DocMagnet Design Engineer commented: “The flux density at the material’s interface with the pole is the most important factor for determining clamp force, knowing these values under varying conditions makes application feasibility that much easier”. In addition, the process will also test for the material’s ability to self-demagnetize.
The ideal sample to be tested will be 4 inches square with one machined surface and at least 3/4 inch thick.
This is a free service to existing customers, other clients will be charged a nominal fee for the test and accompanying documentation.
