Abstract Three dimensional magneto-mechanical problems at low frequency are addressed by means of a coupled fast Boundary Element - Finite Element approach with total scalar potential and focusing especially on the issue of global force calculation on movable ferromagnetic parts. The differentiation of co-energy in this framework and the use of Maxwell tensor are critically discussed and the intrinsic links are put in evidence. Three examples of academic and industrial applications are employed for validation.
