How an Additive Can Make Industrial Magnets More Versatile

Industrial Magnet Research

High-performance magnets, like the ones that are typically used in electric motors, have traditionally been very expensive. These magnets have also required manufacturers to endure a lengthy manufacturing process. Nevertheless, the National Research Council of Canada may have recently come up with a solution to these problems. The organization has created a cold spray additive… Read more »

Magnetic Sweepers Are Even Useful in Space

Magnetic Sweepers in Space

Magnetic sweepers are very important tools down here on Earth. They help companies to pick up loose nails, screws, and other metal objects that could potentially cause problems for them. These metal objects can puncture the tires on vehicles, cause damage to other objects, and even result in injuries. It’s why so many companies have… Read more »

Could This Be The Future of Rare-Earth Magnets?

Science is pretty amazing. Take, for example, a recent development whereas researchers at the Tohoku University in Japan did something amazing: they built an artificial, rare-earth magnet in just ten days. Their magnetic object is a rare-earth free FeNi magnet with high levels of iron and nickel– magnet material that is otherwise typically found in… Read more »

Keep Your Workplace Clean With a Magnetic Sweeper

If you work for or own a company that handles metal parts, you know it can be hard to keep the place clean. You could try to sweep up the nails, bolts and other debris that has fallen on the floor, but that doesn’t always do the trick. However, what if there was equipment available… Read more »

Rare Earth Magnets Benefit Businesses in Many Industries

If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you know that we talk a lot about our own products, the magnet industry in general, and the state of manufacturing in the United States. Concerning magnets, they play a really big role in manufacturing across different industries. Rarely do we talk about the role magnets are… Read more »

How are Industrial Magnets Made? [Video]

Magnets are all around us, and they’re made using metal and electricity. As you know, magnets come in many different shapes and sizes. Making magnets involves using a particular sized/shaped mold which gets put into a machine that fills it with sand. Gases are added into the sand to harden it. The hard sand slab… Read more »

New Ways of Recycling Rare Earth Magnets

Rare earth magnets are the strongest type of permanent magnets made on the planet today as they are made from alloys of rare earth metals. They’re aptly named because they’re hard to come by—they are rare! The rare metals have to be mined and purified and that costs a lot of time, money, and energy…. Read more »

There Are Few Limits to What You Can Do With Industrial Magnets

Industrial magnets have many uses. One of the more recent developments in using magnet technology to make people’s lives easier involves something called the “MagBak Case.” Thanks to a successful crowd-sourced funding run on Kickstarter, where everyday people financially back projects they believe in to make them a reality, the MagBak Case is an iPhone… Read more »
