Simply put, a lifting solenoid is an electromagnet that performs a linear motion when energized. There are a variety of different lifting solenoids that differ in size and design.

Lifting magnets are often used in industry. This allows switches, levers or locks to be moved electrically and automatically.

Common areas of application for lifting magnets:

Lifting magnets, which belong to the group of electromagnets, convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. Thus, the armature is moved linearly (also called linear magnet) from the initial position to the stroke end position.

The movement that the armature performs when energized is also called stroke. For the return movement of the armature to the initial position, an external force such as a return spring is usually used.

However, some lifting magnets can do without this if they have an integrated permanent magnet. The designs therefore differ depending on the requirements, which is why a lifting magnet can be used as a universal magnet for pulling or pushing movements.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact us and we will advise you on your planned project and the suitable lifting magnets.

As already mentioned, these are electromechanical components that perform linear movements. However, the magnets are available in different designs and sizes in order to be used as individually as possible in industry. Here is a small overview:

Single stroke magnet

If an electromagnet only acts in one direction, it is called a simple or single stroke magnet. An electromagnetic force causes a movement from the initial position to the end position, such as model SLA 080x yyy.

Depending on the design, they can therefore be used with both a pushing and a pulling function.

Double stroke magnet

n a double stroke magnet (with zero position), such as our SLA 062E yyy A, the movement from the initial position is caused by electromagnetic forces, which move the armature to one of the two stroke end positions. The armature is then returned to its initial position by external forces.

Reversing stroke magnet

Reversing stroke magnets, such as our SLA 062E yyy B, move the armature between two coils, allowing both directions to be controlled. The direction depends on the energized coil.

Lifting magnet with guided axis

Pneumatic cylinders are often used for the direct installation of tools. However, since these are usually too expensive and technically demanding, a lifting magnet with a guided axis (also called lifting cylinder) is often used as an alternative.

Just like the number of areas of application, the list of advantages of lifting magnets is long. However, they are particularly popular for the following reasons:

  • maintenance-free and low-wear storage
  • long service life
  • low hysteresis
  • any mounting position
  • fast movement
  • high repeatability
  • insensitive design
  • greatest stroke work
  • short switching times
  • low power consumption
  • 100% duty cycle
  • low weight
  • high dynamics
  • inexpensive
  • versatilely modifiable and usable
    return spring can be positioned de-energized
