A company wants me to design an expanded metal guard that is easy to remove for service of the conveyor. The structure of the convey is steel. I was curious to know what the thoughts on using rare earth magnets to secure the guarding to the structure or should I simply leave holes to bolt it down. I only have a few pictures of the structure that have images of someone measuring it to go off of and this is my first time designing guarding of any kind.
