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.
