Everlube Coating Protects Neodymium Magnets

Everlube Coated Magnets from Bunting

The new Everlube anti-corrosion magnet coating combats the increasingly arduous working environments for magnets and magnetic components.  The Everlube coating prevents oxidation and deterioration of high-powered permanent neodymium rare earth magnets. The Everlube coating was originally developed as a brand of dry film lubricant products specifically designed to enhance and improve the performance of critical…

Explaining Neodymium Magnet Strength

Neodymium Magnet Strength

Neodymium Rare Earth Magnets are the strongest commercially available permanent magnets in the world.  Originally invented by General Motors and Sumitomo Special Metals in the early 1980s, Neodymium Magnets are a key component in mobile phones, computers, wind turbines, and modern cars.  The list of applications is nearly endless. As the name suggests, the prime…

An Introduction to the Halbach Array

Bunting Magnetic Assembly

Halbach Arrays feature in many common-day devices such as brushless DC motors and even the Inductrack Maglev train. The Halbach Array is a specific arrangement of permanent magnets that cancels the magnetic field to nearly zero on one side, but significantly increases the strength of the magnetic field on the opposite side. This magnetic phenomenon…

The Future Is Magnetic

A Review of the UK Magnetics Society’s Ewing Event 2018 This year’s 31st Ewing Event, organised by the UK Magnetics Society and sponsored by Bunting Magnetics, focused on the important role of ‘magnets’ in the future.  Indeed, it is widely recognised that magnetic fields are the ideal, low-energy way for creating motion. At the event, there…

Grain Boundary Diffusion Technology

Grain Boundary Diffusion

Neodymium (NdeFeB) Rare Earth Magnets are used throughout industry and, as demand increases from the Energy, Automotive, Aerospace and Down Hole markets, the drive is towards producing magnets that have the highest magnetic energy under the harshest of conditions such as: Hot environments; High Reverse Field Environments; High-Speed High Induced losses environments. These are typical…

Offices Would No Longer Function Without Magnets

Magnets in the office

Stating that an office would not be able to function without the presence of magnets is pretty bold.  Immediately you are thinking that there are other ways to pin notices to white boards or neatly store paperclips.  Important, maybe, but these are not critical to our daily life in work. So, if magnets were removed…
