Magnetbau Schramme Linear Solenoids - Unlimited Applications

Electromagnets in linear solenoid design are also referred to as DC single linear solenoids. This solenoid is a universal magnet. Its armature is moved from the stroke starting position to the stroke end position by means of electromagnetic force. The solenoid is reset via external forces. The magnet can be designed for pulling or thrusting-force action.

The variety on designs and sizes is as extensive as the number of customer applications.

How does a Linear Solenoid work?

In principle, all solenoids work according to the same basic principles of electromechanics, converting electrical energy into mechanical energy.

It consists of a coil wound around a hollow cylindrical tube containing a movable metal rod or armature. When electric current flows through the coil, a magnetic field is generated that attracts the metal rod or armature so that it moves in a linear direction. The magnitude of the movement is directly proportional to the strength of the electric current.

The linear solenoid can be designed for pulling and pushing forces. It has a very long service life due to the extremely precise bearing. The design and equipment offer universal application possibilities.

What properties does a solenoid have?

linear solenoid has many different properties and, depending on the design, properties can also be created which apply in combination with each other: A linear solenoid is characterised by the following properties:

  • Lifting solenoids usually have a fast reaction time and are therefore suitable for applications that require fast movement.
  • Lifting solenoids are sensitive to temperature fluctuations and their performance can be affected by extreme temperatures.
  • high holding force, which can be varied within limits
  • the maximum realisable switching numbers are only limited by the length of the pick-up and release times
