    Calculating Magnetic Force

    Calculating the accurate magnetic force between magnet and magnet or between magnet and steel plate requires professionalism, extensive experience, and advanced simulation software. However, we’ve created a simplistic way for you to calculate an estimation of magnetic force. Before using the calculator, please see below considerations:

    • Magnetisation in direction of height H
    • The equations are based on fits on both FEM and otherwise obtained force data, and take uncertainties on both these data into account
    • The largest uncertainty is in the measured data fits. Measured data here means pull/holding force data as found within published online literature
    • The force is an estimate / approximation. No liability for deviations with measured forces

    Please select shape

    The force calculator can be used for both the computation of the holding/pull force between two identical magnets, and for the computation of the holding/pull force between a magnet and a magnetically non-saturated (hence, sufficiently thick) steel plate. Also, we have only considered the situation of zero distance between magnet and magnet or, equivalently, between magnet and steel plate. Non-zero air gaps are not considered. Note that for zero distance, the force between a magnet and a steel plate is the same as the force between two identical magnets (NOT for non-zero distance, in which case the force between a magnet and a steel plate is smaller than the force between two identical magnets)”.
