The 562-A employs a high energy Neodymium magnet with approximately 15 pounds of pull to hold a scale firmly against any ferrous material, regardless of surface orientation. That means you can orient your scales pointing upward, downward, or sideways, should the situation call for it. Plus, a new design allows placement on rolls from 1.5″ to 12.5″ in diameter – both sides have angled cutouts. The magnet is strong enough to hold a scale horizontally on a ferrous roll.
The edges of the scale holder are precisely ground to 90° in order to assure that the scale is held perpendicular to the surface. The stainless steel magnet body won’t corrode in harsh environments. The scale is captured between two parallel jaws. A thumbscrew moves one of the jaws, which squeezes the scale on its edges and holds it firmly in place. The jaw edges themselves are beveled, causing the back of the scale to be firmly seated against the scale holder as the jaws close. The 562-A will hold any of our currently-offered optical tooling scales up to and including the 20″ size, as well as our older type scales (which were fabricated from a thicker material).
Use the 562-A magnetic scale holder to secure our 3″, 5″, 10″, 20″, 80mm, 130mm, 250mm, or 500mm scales in any orientation on a ferrous surface.
