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…

Magnet Comparison: Neodymium and Samarium Cobalt Rare Earth Magnets

Battle of the Rare Earth Magnets

Neodymium Iron Boron NdFeB (i.e. Neodymium) and Samarium Cobalt SmCo are both ultra-strong rare-earth permanent magnets.  Both are brittle in nature and subject to catastrophic damage if subject to severe impact (i.e. dropping).  However, that is where the similarity ends and, when selecting a magnet material for a specific application, our design engineers assess each…

Sensor Magnets

Car Dashboard Magnetic Sensors

Sensors are used everywhere from vehicle engine management systems to Smartphones determining if the flip cover accessory is closed. Modern everyday life would be very different without sensors and the operation of many of these sensors rely on magnetism. As products evolve, so have the range and specification of sensor magnets. A magnetic sensor converts…

Replicating True Radial Arc and Ring Magnets with Pseudo-Radial Arcs and Rings

Halbach Array

The manufacture of anisotropic radially magnetised arcs and rings is significantly different to the production of diametrically magnetised rings and arcs. Radially aligned and magnetised anisotropic arcs and rings are only possible in fully dense sintered NdFeB and need a dedicated press tool and magnetising fixture and have a limited physical envelope (Max OD 85mm).…

Metal Recovery from Electric Vehicles

Electric Car

Mining the Urban Environment The anticipated global increase in production and consumption of electronic goods and electric vehicles puts a huge strain on raw material reserves. Subsequently, the focus has turned from mining raw materials to reclaiming, reusing and recycling secondary materials. This is known as ‘Mining the Urban Environment’. Magnetics Importance for Electric Vehicles…

Magnets In Space

Apollo_11

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of when mankind first stepped onto the surface of the moon.  However, not many people know that this momentous achievement would not have been possible without magnets.  In this article, we review the important role of magnets in space. The guidance and navigation system computers for the Apollo 11 spacecraft…
