The countersunk mounting pot magnet is also known as a shallow pot magnet (a term often used with ferrite material as the inner magnet but other magnet materials are used).
The countersunk mounting pot magnet / shallow pot magnet is a ferromagnetic steel cup into which is inserted a countersunk ring magnet. There is a hole all the way through the countersunk mounting pot magnet / shallow pot magnet. This allows a screw head to be inserted to screw it to any material of your choice to give a good mechanical hold.
Take care not to over tighten the screw to prevent breaking the magnet material (which is brittle in nature). The countersunk mounting pot magnet / shallow pot magnet is a very popular pot magnet, ideal for clamping and holding applications. It is designed to clamp directly onto ferromagnetic surfaces such as mild steel. Alnico countersunk mounting pot magnets / alnico shallow pot magnets have a maximum operating temperature of up to +450 degrees C and are available in natural (uncoated, unpainted) or painted finishes. In some versions the steel hole of the mild steel cup in threaded.
