Demagnetiser Workstation

A common problem in industry is residual magnetism in parts after machining or working.  Often parts stick together, proving difficult for additional processing. Another typical problem after machining is that parts can pick up swarf, and even washing can prove ineffective. By demagnetising parts, the above problems can be alleviated. There are various different waysContinue reading “Demagnetiser Workstation”
