Magnetic Wire Management

Magnetic Wire Management

Strength meets utility when securing wires in industrial applications. Discover the many benefits of pairing neodymium magnets with industrial-grade mounts and fasteners.

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 strongest 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 it does the job well today, it will remain reliable at least the rest of your lifetime – and probably several more.

What mounting advantages do they offer?

Magnet Mag APP

For one, convenience. No drilling mounting holes through thick steel surfaces. No hauling out the welding rig and spending extra time brazing on mounts. And no extra mounting hardware, which can be tedious to hold together – and inevitably, bolts and nuts drop onto the floor. 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. These aren’t everyday refrigerator magnets. Our neodymium magnets adhere incredibly well to most commercial and industrial metal surfaces, even if covered with oil, grease, paint or debris. To protect the magnets from corrosion, they are triple-plated with nickel, copper and nickel again. Under ordinary use, 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. Here is the current line-up and more are in development.

  • Available in mini, small, large, and grip tie versions.
  • 5 lb – 15 lb pull rate
  • Will be sold separately and as unassembled set with ties
Magnetic Family Mounts
  • Available in ½", ¾", 1" clips sizes
  • 10 lb – 15 lb pull rate
Magnetic Family Clips
  • Available in ¾",
    1-¼", 2" ring sizes
  • 40 lb – 90 lb pull rate
Magnetic Family Bridle
  • Available in
    1-⁵⁄₁₆" and 2" hook sizes
  • 90 lb pull rate
  • Top and side mounting available
Magnetic Family JHooks

Applications and benefits

  • Use along steel surfaces where drilling holes is not desirable.
  • Ideal as "a second set of hands" to assist in cable routing, even when the final fastening method is non-magnetic.
  • Able to rotate or move as needed.
  • Reusable, which makes them handy for temporary applications.
  • Compared to traditional mounts, easier to attach to surfaces out of reach or hard to see
  • Greater long-term mounting than adhesive.

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 of our products 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.
