Small electromagnets find applications in a variety of industrial and OEM situations as diverse as fire-door clamp and release mechanisms, pick and place magnets for robotic applications, cattle gate security, air conditioning vent closures - even horse-racing start gates. Single or multiple small electromagnets are frequently used as lifting magnets, especially in thin sheet lifting applications.
