MSA’s Quality Analysis Capabilities Increase

Magnet-Schultz of America has added new machinery that increases our abilities in quality and manufacturing analysis. The addition of a new cross-cut machine, grinding machine, and upgraded microscopes allows MSA to perform even more comprehensive inspections. By setting parts in epoxy, MSA can effectively freeze all components in place and then take a complete and

How Solenoid Modifications Improve Performance

Common Solenoid Modifications While Magnet-Schultz of America has a comprehensive range of reference solenoid products, the greatest value we have to offer our customers are modified or entirely custom solenoids and actuators. Many engineers or purchasing agents contact us knowing what type of function and performance they need in a solenoid but they may not

MSA Adds Automated Staking Assembly

Magnet-Schultz of America has added new staking process automation that will allow us to achieve even greater process control while improving production capacity and PPM levels. The automation system has been developed and implemented in conjunction with Magnet-Schultz Memmingen, and represents an increasing exchange of ideas and capabilities that will bring benefits to customers in

MSA Expands Machining Capabilities With Equipment Addition

Magnet-Schultz of America has added new machinery that increases our technical capabilities and output, allowing us to exceed quality expecations while simultaneously improving our lead times. The addition of this new 5 spindle Swiss style CNC lathe provides us with additional capacity in the manufacturing of the highly complex components required to deliver the highest

Our latest product showcase video highlights our abilities

Hydraulic Solenoid Design Features

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

MSA’s Capabilities Expand with the Benefit of Precision Automated Equipment

Magnet-Schultz of America, Inc. is happy to announce that we have added precision automated equipment that will drastically increase winding, welding, assembly, and testing capabilities. These additions have been selected to complement MSA's technical proficiencies and increase capacity while maintaining the highest expectations for quality. Delivering quality products is our priority, and cutting edge manufacturing

Developing a Preliminary Specification for Solenoids and Electromagnetic Devices

Developing a Preliminary Specification for Solenoids and Electromagnetic Devices When System Design Engineers are tasked with incorporating an electromagnetic device (i.e. a solenoid, electromagnet, voice coil, etc.) into a new product, it would be useful if they could readily access design “guidelines” that would help them to identify, quantify and then communicate the performance
