Welcome back to the MSA blog! In this post, we will take a look at how side load can affect solenoids. Magnet-Schultz’s Program Management Checklist allows us to play cards up with our customers at the start of each new project so that our Program Management, Design, Manufacturing Engineering, and Operations/Production teams can fully
Temperature Impacts on Solenoids - Part 2 In our last blog, we learned about the different ways temperature impacts the design of a solenoid and the importance of understanding requirements up front to ensure our customers have success and achieve optimal performance within the dimensional and technical requirements of their applications. Solenoids do work.
Temperature Impacts on Solenoids - Part 1 Have you ever experienced the frustration of trying to use an overheated cell phone? Perhaps it wasn’t your cell phone, but rather an overheated car engine that delayed your morning commute to the office. Though these items may not have completely stopped working altogether, your ability to
The latest entry in the Magnet-Schultz of America Solenoid 101 blog series is designed to explain the basic differences between common solenoid valve designs. This blog builds on our general overview of solenoid principles. Check our blog history for information on more technical concepts and feel free to make suggestions for future posts. Solenoid
Choosing a solenoid can be overwhelming. The sheer number of parts offered makes it difficult to identify all of the possibilities, and comparing specification sheets and force curves is time consuming. You can always send your requirements to us and we can identify a best fit for you, but some prefer to explore their
Electromagnets are a versatile option for holding and lifting applications, but proper mounting and operation is necessary to get the most out of these devices. The steps below outline the best practices and common mistakes encountered when implementing electromagnets. Follow these basic steps to increase your application’s efficiency, and check out our previous blog post
In pt. 1 of our hydraulic solenoids post, we described how they differ from electromechanical solenoids and discussed some basic applications. We also had a follow-up blog post that described the two major functional categories of hydraulic solenoids, on/off and proportional. This post will expand on the different design and manufacturing features of tubes
The latest entry in the Magnet-Schultz of America Solenoid 101 blog explains the basic types of hydraulic solenoid functionality. A more detailed analysis of these types of mechanisms has been previously published by MSA here. This recap will reduce the content to the simplest terms for a quick and clear understanding of the fundamental concepts.
The latest entry in the Magnet-Schultz of America Solenoid 101 blog series is designed to illustrate the differences between push and pull solenoids. This blog builds on our general overview of solenoid principles and applications, which can be found here. Check our blog history for information on more technical concepts and feel free to make
Magnet-Schultz of America’s new Solenoid 101 series of blogs is designed to inform about the basic functions of solenoid products. We will start by tackling the fundamentals of solenoid terminology, function, and design. Future posts in the series will describe other MSA product categories and applications in a similar fashion, providing a quick and easy
