Linear solenoids are widely used in OEM designs for their ability to deliver efficient short-stroke actuation. Standard solenoids are sometimes sufficient. However, because every OEM design has unique requirements and application challenges, customized solenoids often offer technical benefits that allow engineering teams to bring better products to market faster, with higher value for the end customer. More specifically, custom solenoids can deliver better efficiency than off-the-shelf designs by tailoring materials, functionality and design to application requirements. Custom solenoids can also be more cost-effective by eliminating extraneous elements and optimizing those that are integrated.
This white paper examines solenoid features that can be customized and illustrates how they can help engineers meet key performance objectives more effectively.
