Model construction of a magnetic cross wood stack

Our customer provides us with his instructions for building a model of a magnetic cross wood stack.
Cross wood stack are used to support loads (building collapse) or to enlarge surfaces so that one does not sink in with supports (crane, work platforms).

Model construction of a stack of wooden cross-pieces

Hello Magnet Shop Team,
Enclosed my magnet application. It is a replica of a stack of crossed wood with magnets.
The model of the „magnetic“ cross wood stack is used for training in the field of work platforms, cranes and heavy technical rescue.

In order to explain the stack of crosswood in theory, I built a model.
Problem with the model: You can’t even move it quickly from one place to another.

This is where the neodymium rodmagnets are used!

Construction steps:

    • Saw off wood
    • Mark holes
    • Pre-drill holes with a 4 mm drill
    • Sand down the wood and remove the marks
    • Use a machine screw to insert magnets into the wood – pay attention to the polarity.

The advantage of our neodymium bar magnets is their easy handling. Thanks to their elongated shape, they are easy to grip. They are suitable for pin boards. By lining up individual magnets, you can put together bar magnets made of neodymium in any length. Almost all models have the north and south poles on the flat circular surfaces (axial magnetization). Some designs are diametrically magnetized. We offer you high quality neodymium bar magnets in different sizes.
