Which ways to use a pot magnet, Pot magnets application, what are pot magnets used for
There are many ways to use a pot magnet. To illustrate their applicability, here are a few examples:
Magnetic light fittings
Magnetic down light being held by a stud pot magnet
Internal threaded stud pot magnets can be used as part of a light fitting for a magnetic down light. The magnet is attached to the end of the light to hold it onto the metal in a ceiling.
Exhibition display signs
Countersunk pot magnet attached to an exhibition display sign
Countersunk pot magnets can be used to attach an exhibition display sign to a stand for marketing purposes, e.g. at a trade show.
Internal threaded pot magnets hanging mugs from a fridge door
Internal threaded pot magnets with the added hook accessory can be used to hang items such as mugs to a fridge door.
Deep pot magnet holding an articulated arm gauge
Deep internal threaded pot magnets can be used as a magnetic base for gauges e.g. an articulated gauging arm. An articulated gauging arm is used to precisely position objects within metrology (the science of measurement).
Internal threaded stud pot magnet being used as a door stop
Internal threaded stud pot magnets can be used as door stops to protect the door from closing all the way to the wall by holding it open.
Tow light kit with a through hole pot magnet attached
Through hole pot magnets can be attached to the bottom of a tow light to enable the user to attach the tow light to the car to warn other road users that their car has broken down.
Bi-pole pot magnets can be used as jigs. A jig is a custom-made tool created to control another tool’s movements. The bi-pole pot magnet is press-fitted or glued in place on the jig to help hold a non-ferromagnetic material, such as a piece of wood, onto a ferromagnetic surface whilst it is being drilled into.
