A Brief Introduction of Shuttering Magnets

1. What is a shuttering magnet?


Precast concrete is treated as a new generation of building material of the construction industry, and it has been widely applied in Europe, America and the Middle Eastern. Shuttering magnet is one of the most important accessories in the precast concrete system. And shuttering magnet is designed to brace the side rails and blocks when pouring concrete.

3. The working principle of a shuttering magnet


The core component of the whole shuttering magnet is the magnetic array. Neodymium magnets and steel plates form a special magnetic circuit that provides the extremely strong attractive force, and the attractive force is controlled by the air gap. The relevant magnetic circuit as the following figure shows.



Weizhong Magnetics has collected a lot of experience about shuttering magnets. The company will provide reliable solutions to customers that rely on outstanding simulation software, production and testing facilities.


4. Advantages of a shuttering magnet


  • It can be accurately positioned very easily so that it reduces complexity and installation time.

  • It has excellent applicability, and different concrete products can be processed on the same stainless steel plate.

  • It no longer requires welding and bolting processes, which will damage the stainless steel plate.

  • It has a long service life, and it can be reused. The payback is shorter.

  • It significantly improves the operating environment while ensuring site safety.


5. The usage method of a shuttering magnet


  • Place the shuttering magnet on the specific position of the stainless steel plate.

  • The shuttering magnet will be attached to the plate after pressing the clamping handle.

  • A professional crowbar is used to pry the clamping handle. The magnetic force decreases with the increase of the air gap between the array and the plate.

  • The fixing screws can fix different types of side rails and blocks.


6. The maintenance method of a shuttering magnet


  • Maximum prevents damage to the magnet and avoids external forces.

  • It is similar to the magnetic lifter that the working surface of the magnetic array should keep clean and smooth.

  • The flexibility of the clamping handle will be influenced by the intrusion of iron filings and concrete.

  • It should have proper rust prevention.

  • The maximum operating temperature of a shuttering magnet should be lower than 80 degrees.
