Solenoids (flow valves)
Solenoids are electromagnetic devices that convert electrical energy into linear motion and are commonly used to operate valves, switches, or relays. One key component of most solenoids is the yoke, which forms the magnetic circuit and has additional functions integrated, like guiding the armature or bearing the shaft.
PM technology offers an ideal solution for the design of small, efficient solenoids through a combination of soft magnetic material performance and net shape capability.
