Alright the attached picture has the two physical layouts I'm considering for the chuck, however I'll admit that looking at the math involved to determine the construction of the individual magnets and a knowledge gap in how best to manipulate the construction of such a thing to have the greatest amount of uniform attractive force over the surface area. Something in the range of 3050 lbs per square inch.
My target face area for the chuck is to be 10" by 6", height can vary a good bit, but I'm aiming for a 2" height.
So, firstly, do you think my overall aim here is realistic and something that could be cost effective? My time on this isn't a critical consideration, so it's more down to materials cost.
Secondly, I have no idea on how to determine the effectiveness or best means to determine how overlapping magnetic fields are going to function and what arrangement would be optimal. Any guidance or direction on how to determine such a thing would be greatly appreciated.
Lastly, I know I'm asking a lot on this one and that I am admittedly having problems seeing how to convert the values I'm after (voltage, amperage, pull strength) into the number of windings and size of the iron core. Anything to clarify or help me work through how to translate from one to the other would also be wonderfully appreciated.
