MAGNETS FOR THE MAINTENANCE AND ROBOTIC SECTOR
The use of magnets in the material handling and robotics sector has been growing steadily in recent years due to their many advantages. Magnets are an effective way to transport and manipulate objects, especially in confined spaces and in situations where high precision is required. There are several types of magnets used in materials handling and robotics, among which permanent magnets and electromagnets stand out.
Permanent magnets are magnets that generate a permanent magnetic field. These magnets are used in situations where a constant magnetic force is required and polarity changes are not necessary. Permanent magnets are used in the maintenance and robotics sector, for example, indoor locking systems, motor brakes, and in some types of sensors.
Electromagnets, on the other hand, are magnets that generate a magnetic field when an electric current is applied to them. These magnets are widely used in the handling and robotics sector because they allow the intensity of the magnetic field to be varied, which facilitates the manipulation of objects of different sizes and weights.
One of the main uses of magnets in handling and robotics is in transport and object-handling systems. Transport systems with magnets allow the movement of objects through the application of a magnetic force. These systems are used in the handling and robotics sector, for example, in the handling of parts on production lines,
in object sorting systems in warehouses, and in systems for loading and unloading products into trucks and containers.
Magnets are also used in object handling in robotics. Robots equipped with magnets can manipulate objects with great precision and speed. These robots are used, in the handling and robotics sector, more specifically, in the automotive industry for handling parts on production lines, and in the electronics industry for handling components in circuit manufacturing.
The robotics sector is in continuous evolution, automating many production systems in manufacturing lines and thus improving the quality of the final product with more efficient processes. At the same time, it is replacing human tasks with computer-generated functions.
One example is the car production lines, where we see different workers exercising their knowledge and skills in very specific processes, but we also see the importance of robots and machines, helping to minimize costs, validating and certifying quality, saving working time, etc.
One of the keys to success for the business is the automation of its processes, where products such as magnets are fundamental. They can lift heavy products and move them to the next treatment, create signals via sensors to warn of a change in the process, etc.
