Permanent magnets for elevator traction machine

Elevator traction machine is an important component in the elevator system, which plays the role of lifting and lowering the elevator by pulling the wire rope or driving the elevator up and down. One of the key components of the elevator traction machine is the permanent magnet.

Permanent magnet is a magnet that produces a constant magnetic field, which can be used in a variety of applications such as motors, generators, and sensors. In elevator traction machines, permanent magnets are typically used as part of the motor, and their main function is to generate a magnetic field that interacts with the coils through which the current passes to create the electromagnetic force that drives the elevator.

Advantages of permanent magnets include stable magnetic fields, efficient energy conversion, and smaller size. Compared to conventional electromagnets, permanent magnets are lighter in size and weight and provide higher power density, making elevator systems more efficient and energy saving.

Elevator traction machine magnet magnetic performance grade;

Elevator traction machine magnets generally use high performance grade NdFeB such as N35SH, N38SH, N40SH and N33UH, which can withstand high temperature more than 150℃, if you need a quote, provide samples please leave us a message.

Samarium Cobalt magnets are also used in elevator traction machines, especially in high temperature environments.

There are several factors to consider when selecting a permanent magnet material for an elevator tractor. These include the magnetic strength of the magnet, cost, availability, and compatibility with the application's operating environment. For example, NdFeB magnets are well suited for compact, high-performance elevator motors, while SmCo magnets are better suited for high-temperature environments.
