What are Channel Magnets and what are they used for?

ceramic channelChannel Magnetic Assemblies are created using ceramic magnets clad in a steel channel.  Magnetic strength can be multiplied by up to 32 times by using steel armatures to concentrate magnetic flux. Such armatures may take the form of backing plates or channels. The maximum increase in power is obtained when magnets are sandwiched between two plates.

For example: A 0.187" thick x 0.750" wide x 1" long rubber magnet has 4 oz. of pull strength. The same magnet bonded to a channel (assembly #RMCH-10) will pull 5 Ibs., which is 20 times greater.


Common Applications: Sign and Banner Holders - License Plate Mounts - Door Latches.
