Magnetic mounts this powerful are rare.
What’s a neodymium magnet?
The strongest of all rare-earth magnets, neodymium magnets are made from neodymium, iron and boron, often abbreviated NdFeB or NIB.
Neodymium magnets are the most powerful magnets in the world.
They are often referred to as “permanent” because, in normal applications, they will lose less than 1 percent of their strength over 10 years.
If they do the job well today, they will remain reliable at least the rest of your lifetime – and probably several more.
What mounting advantages do they offer?
For one, convenience. No drilling, welding or extra mounting hardware. Magnets are the only mounting solution “eager” to mount as-is. That means zero effort placing them into position. In fact, they are even easier to install in hard-to reach areas or blind spots.
They also stay where you put them. Neodymium magnets adhere to most commercial and industrial metal surfaces, even if covered with oil, grease, paint or debris. Triple plated with nickel, copper and nickel again, they should look as good as they perform for life.
So, whether your application is permanent or temporary, you’ve got the perfect, reusable solution.
How do they fasten?
The fasteners paired with these magnetic mounts provide a variety of convenient options to support wire and cable bundles.
Applications and benefits
Know your magnet’s limits
Rare-earth magnets deliver in so many ways. But like most solutions to a problem, you need to know the full story to make informed implementation decisions.
If heated above their maximum operating temperature of 176 degrees F (80 degrees C), neodymium magnets will lose a fraction of their magnetic strength. If heated above 590 degrees F (310 degrees C), they will lose all their magnetic properties.
Each product is rated to support a weight range. Will a 20 lb rated magnet always lift a 20 lb object? Since pull forces are tested under laboratory conditions, your results may vary in the real world. Effective pull force is reduced by such factors as:
- Uneven contact with the surface
- Pulling in a non-perpendicular direction from the surface
- Attaching to metal that’s thinner than ideal
- Surface coatings
As always, test the product in your application and operating environment to make sure it performs to your expectations.
Magnetic Cable Tie Mounts - Round
Magnetic cable tie mounts route bundles by securing to steel surfaces without the need for a mounting hole. Simply attach the wire bundle to the mount with a cable tie and position it onto the beam, metal joist, ceiling channel, conveyor frame, or other steel surface. The mounts are simple to secure and can attach to surfaces contaminated with oil or debris. Ultra-strong neodymium magnets are ideal as a permanent mount or for temporary applications. Reuse and reposition them for ultimate flexibility without needing to replace or repurchase parts. Magnetic cable tie mounts can be paired with standard T18-T50 cable ties.
