The new Multi-Flux Magnetic Chuck is a revolution in electro-magnetic technology.
This new permanent-electro magnetic system employs the patented Variable Field Technology, which allows the user to determine the flux height, field strength, and clamping force of the magnet. The system also has a demagnetizing capability especially useful for the releasing of hardened steels.
Initiated by a toggle switch on the hand pendant, the Multi-Flux Magnetic Chuck has two modes of operation: Induced Pole and True Pole.
In Induced Pole Mode, the magnetic area available over the entire surface of the chuck leads to greater balancing of the flux, less stray magnetism, and more uniform clamping. The magnetic flux height in this mode is less than 1/2 an inch into the workpiece, enabling the system to handle smaller profiles and thinner parts.
In True Pole Mode, the magnetic flux height is less than 3/4 of an inch into the part, and the key benefit and versatility of top tooling can be utilized. An example of top tooling is the spring loaded self-shimming pole. When used in conjunction with three fixed poles, the self-shimming poles will conform to the shape of the workpiece, reducing vibration and allowing for greater clamping force.
The ability to switch between these two modes makes the Multi-Flux Magnet the ideal chuck for any job in any location, from a job shop to a full production facility.
