Copper-plated magnetic welding squares
- November 5, 2019
Industrial Magnetics Inc. has announced a new line of copper-plated magnetic welding squares.
Industrial Magnetics says the new welding squares resist corrosion and prevent weld spatter from sticking.
Due to the highly conductive properties of copper, the heat from small particles of weld spatter that hit the face of the welding square are quickly conducted away, thereby preventing bonding of the materials. This keeps the sides and edges of the square clean, true, and free from spatter buildup, protecting the accuracy of its alignment. As copper is also naturally corrosion-resistant, the plated squares boost product lifespan.
The new copper-plated magnetic squares are available in four models for holding sheet stock or tubing in a variety of angles, including 30°, 45°, 60° or 90°. Mounting holes are provided for fixturing the squares into jigs, and a large finger hole is provided for easy setup and removal of the square from a metal surface. Model 410 also offers a covered magnet face, for easy removal of fuzz iron that may have attracted to the magnet.
