Construction Industry Magnets and Magnetic Assemblies

magnets for construction industry

From pouring concrete to moving scrap materials, a lot of work goes into a construction project. Attention to detail is critical, as the smallest nonconformity can cause application failure.

Improve the precision, speed, and safety of your next build with innovative magnetic separation, holding, and lifting solutions from Magnetic Hold. We’re a premier provider of custom magnets and magnetic assemblies for demanding industrial applications. 

Types of Construction Industry Magnets

We design and develop high-performing magnets and magnetic assemblies for construction industry applications. An ISO 9001:2015- and AS9100D-certified manufacturer, our range of products meet the highest standards of functionality, finish, and cleanliness.

Rare earth metals like neodymium and samarium cobalt are the backbone of our construction sector magnet solutions. They exhibit high coercive forces and high-temperature stability, which are ideal for high-speed, large-volume sortation processes. Samarium cobalt magnets have corrosion-resistant properties and are perfect for fluid-based applications. Although neodymium magnets are naturally susceptible to corrosion, exterior plating can bolster protection. 

Construction Industry Applications

Magnetic Hold provides custom magnetic solutions for demanding construction applications. Our knowledgeable team works with you to develop the best magnetic assembly using a trusted consultative process aimed at successfully addressing performance, fitment, longevity, and safety. 

Magnets can improve the performance of any construction process. Here are some applications that can improve with the integration of magnetic assemblies. 

  • Welding
  • Structural framing
  • Ferromagnetic material lifting
  • Concrete pouring
  • Magnetic material transportation
  • Product conveyance systems
  • Sifting equipment 
  • Scrap metal removal  
  • Sensor functionality
  • Elevator operation 
  • Heavy machinery usage

Benefits of Magnets in the Construction Industry

Completing a bridge, skyscraper, or cargo container vessel requires a lot of critical-but-overlooked tasks that demand accuracy, human resources, and time. Examples include securing structural framing for welding, finding nails in studs, and uncovering discarded metal fasteners.

Magnets safely and effectively hold materials in place, eliminating additional crews and unwanted movement during fabrication. They also pinpoint iron-based products in an existing structure, avoiding the need to tear down walls. Finding thrown away or dropped metal piece parts in the dirt or grass after project completion is a snap with magnets. Furthermore, these tools can seek out valuable magnetic metals for recycling, which reduces waste and job costs. Here are additional ways that magnets can benefit construction applications.

  • Process optimization 
  • Operation doesn’t require electricity
  • Less preparatory work
  • Minimized human error  
  • Simple categorization of magnetic and non-magnetic materials
  • Elimination of impurities
  • Heightened safety 
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Increased amount of recyclable materials recovered 
  • Improved customer satisfaction

The recovery of metals from construction sites improves safety. Leftover metal objects can injure pedestrians and damage vehicles. Magnets for construction sector applications find ferromagnetic materials such as iron, steel, and certain stainless steels quickly and efficiently.

High Performance Construction Industry Magnets

At Magnetic Hold, customer satisfaction is paramount. We are committed to delivering magnets and magnetic assemblies that surpass every applicable industry standard and customer specification. 

Quality control personnel use precise testing and inspection equipment to ensure each magnet and magnetic assembly meets purchase order requirements. All orders are audited for accuracy before shipment.
