A UK based company needed a magnetiser for magnets that
weighed in at 1.4 Tonnes. The magnets were to be brough to the
magnetiser by over head crain then fed through the fixture using a
hydraulic winch. Once inside, the 300kJ capacitor bank would be used to
charge or magnetise the magnet. Hydrauic clamps held the magnet
in place duing magnetising and a integrating flux meter would also
check the magnetisation for quality control purposes.
The fixture utilised weighed in at over 11 Tonnes and represented a significant engineering achievement.
The magnetiser produced fully saturated magnets and improved the
magnetic strength w.r.t the exisitng methods for producing the
companies product as well as reducing time.
