Horseshoe magnets are the typical classic magnet. This type has been known for many years and is the traditional symbol of a magnet. They have very efficient mounting and holding characteristics and are used for several different purposes in the industrial sector.
Horseshoe magnets are produced of the material AlNiCo that allows them to operate under very high temperatures.
Generally speaking the magnetic force for AlNiCo magnets is lower than the force for neodymium but it is still an efficient industrial magnet for any minor holding or catching function.
