How Solenoid Modifications Improve Performance

Common Solenoid Modifications

While Magnet-Schultz of America has a comprehensive range of reference solenoid products, the greatest value we have to offer our customers are modified or entirely custom solenoids and actuators. Many engineers or purchasing agents contact us knowing what type of function and performance they need in a solenoid but they may not be aware of what changes we will make to the unit to accomplish their request. This is fine! We are always happy to work alongside our customers to develop a good working knowledge of electromagnetics that helps them understand the solution we are developing for them and how we can add value beyond what is found in standard solenoid offerings. Still, not every possible feature may be discussed if it doesn’t fit that customer’s application. That is why we decided to use this blog to list the most commonly requested modifications, so that everyone who wants to know more about the range of possibilities has a place to start.

Hydraulic Solenoid Design Features

Posted by: Magnet-Schultz of America

Thu, Feb 23, 2017 @ 04:04 PM


In pt. 1 of our hydraulic solenoids post, we described how they differ from electromechanical solenoids and discussed some basic applications. We also had a follow-up blog post that described the two major functional categories of hydraulic solenoids, on/off and proportional. This post will expand on the different design and manufacturing features of tubes and coils depending on their intended purpose. Check our blog history for information on more technical subjects and feel free to make suggestions for future posts.
