Magnetic Nail Sweeper Solutions
Magnetic nail sweepers are a type of magnetic sweeper used to quickly pick up metal objects such as nails or screws. Magnetic nail sweepers work well in a variety of environments, including shop floors and even grass. They are essential for easily and safely clearing environments of metal debris without having to bend over.
Guide to Magnetic Strength
Magnets are objects or materials that attract or repel other magnets through a force known as magnetism. Available in several shapes, sizes, and strengths, magnets are an essential component of everything from MRI machines to magnetic pick-up tools and sweepers.
What Is a Magnetic Broom
Magnetic brooms are a type of multipurpose tool that collects ferrous metals. Some of the debris they collect includes nails, washers, screws, and nuts from garages, floors, and walkways, among other areas. Magnetic brooms offer an efficient way to clean up a variety of environments, and they come in different types, depending on the job.
How to Choose the Best Heavy-Duty Magnetic Sweeper
To select the right type of heavy-duty magnetic sweeper, it’s important to understand the specifications to look for and their benefits for various applications.
Metal Pickup Performance at Speed Testing
There are many ways that magnetic power can be measured (Gauss, Tesla, Holding Force, Pickup Height) and these metrics are useful for assessing the power of magnets comparatively. However, none of these metrics are perfectly applicable to real world conditions that you will use a magnetic sweeper in because they fail to factor speed into the equation. Therefore, we developed a methodology of testing magnetic sweepers at speed
Industrial Uses of Magnets
Industrial magnets play a vital role in numerous systems and operations. While these magnetic devices rely on the same principles as the ones used for residential purposes (e.g., sticking items to a refrigerator), they generally have more specific requirements and restrictions regarding composition, type, size, and strength, depending on the intended use.
Importance of Airfield FOD Sweepers
In airfields, FOD poses a significant safety risk to aircraft and personnel. Below, we discuss what FOD is, how to prevent it using sweepers and other methods, and what types of FOD sweepers are available.
Push Broom Magnets for Flat Surfaces – Does size matter?
There are a lot of “flat surface” magnet sweepers on the market, in fact almost all other competitor magnetic sweepers are flat surface sweepers whether they market them as “all surface” sweepers or not,
Measuring Magnetic Sweeper Pickup Power and Performance
To understand a magnet's pickup power to compare magnets you need to know how the magnetic pickup power and performance is being measured. Pickup power is a very difficult thing to explain or for a potential buyer to ask about and still have it mean anything.
