Light for the right perspective while drilling is essential to ensure that you have the right perspective while working.
In many cases, large bench drilling machines already have a built-in light. The smaller fixtures that can be used with a conventional drill usually have no light.
One of our customers still didn’t want to do without it and quickly came up with a magnetic solution for it.
Light for the right perspective while drilling
Material used and implementation for this application:
- Neodymium potmagnet Ø 32.0 x 8.0 mm
- The magnet was mounted on the mounting bracket of the lamp, this can now be attached easily to the horizontal arm of the drilling device
The light is always in the right place and nothing stands in the way of clean work.
Functioning of the neodymium pot magnets with steel pot:
The strong NdFeB magnets are installed in a steel pot. This metal housing protects the neodymium magnet from damage and increases the adhesive force. In order to achieve an optimal adhesive force, the pot magnet must rest directly on the metallic surface. A thin sheet of iron or paint can reduce the adhesive force very quickly. The adhesive force only acts on the open magnet side, since the steel pot shields the magnetic effect.
Special feature: The magnet has a central hole with a counter bore. This allows the holding magnet to be securely screwed to the wall / ceiling using a countersunk screw. Metallic counterparts then adhere magnetically to this pot magnet. The maximum operating temperature is 80 ° C.
The holding magnets / assembly magnets / pot magnets are used particularly often in industry, trade fairs and assembly. Strong pot magnets are also indispensable in the advertising sector / display construction / lighting sector.
