Goudsmit UK's magnets attracting attention at AIX

Posted 25 February 2019 · Add Comment

AS 9100 certified Goudsmit UK, will be presenting a range of magnetic product solutions for the aerospace industry at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX), being held at the Hamburg Messe from the 2nd to 4th of April 2019.

The company designs, manufactures and supplies permanent magnets and magnetic assemblies that are lower in weight than their predecessors and continue to perform optimally over the long term in the toughest conditions.

Such magnets can be found in actuators, linear drives and electric motors, including those intended for the aerospace industry. Special software is also used to simulate and test whether the critical requirements are met for tensile forces, torques, field strength, temperature and sensor specifications.

Weight reduction – which is always desirable for the aerospace industry – is made possible using alternative magnet types with higher efficiency.

Having attained the AS 9100 certification, the company is now a qualified supplier to the aerospace industry. Since attaining ISO/TS 16949:2009 certification in 2008, the Goudsmit Group has been a supplier to the automotive industry. Attaining the AS 9100 certification was the next step.

In addition, the company supplies the basic principles, data and knowledge for the design process of magnet assemblies. The company’s embedded knowledge of the physical and mechanical properties of magnetic materials is employed from the earliest stages of design. In addition, it is also called upon to suggest effective, lighter and cost‐effective alternatives. This is achieved in part using analytical methods for describing magnetic circuits, calculation methods for determining the required dimensions of permanent magnet circuits and two‐ or three‐dimensional finite elements processes.

Goudsmit UK will also be at the Aerospace Forum Birmingham (19th - 21st March 2019), showcasing its advanced capabilities in producing precision machined components.
