Longitudinal Poles in Electromagnetic Chucks for Thin and Long Workpieces

electromagnetic chuck with longitudinal poles

At Brisc Magnet, our magnetic chucks with longitudinal poles, like our EMM magnetic workholding, are specifically designed for precision machining of elongated workpieces. These chucks provide a crucial advantage by offering an enhanced magnetic hold along the length of the workpiece, which is essential for maintaining stability and accuracy during machining operations.

Enhanced Magnetic Distribution

Longitudinal pole magnetic chucks are engineered with poles aligned along the length of the chuck. This design allows for a consistent and uniform magnetic field across the entire surface of the chuck, which is particularly beneficial for operations involving small and thin components. The uniform magnetic pull ensures that the entire workpiece remains flat and secure against the chuck’s surface no matter where the workpieces are located on the chuck, reducing vibrations and potential inaccuracies during machining.

Ideal for Specific Machining Tasks

The configuration of longitudinal poles makes these chucks ideal for grinding and EDM operations of long workpieces such as bars, shafts, and rails. The poles are spaced strategically to maximize contact with the workpiece, enhancing the clamping force and stability needed for precise material removal and shaping. This setup not only improves the quality of the machining process but also enhances operational efficiency by minimizing setup times and adjustments.

Minimal Deformation and Heat Impact

One of the significant benefits of using our longitudinal pole chucks is their ability to minimize mechanical deformation and heat impact on the workpiece. With a low magnetic field height of only 4 mm and a controlled temperature rise, these chucks ensure that the workpieces do not warp or distort due to excessive heat or magnetic force. This is critical for maintaining the integrity of the materials and achieving high-precision results in sensitive manufacturing processes.
