Industrial Magnets Industry Information

Industrial Magnets

Industrial magnets are incredibly powerful and possess characteristics that make them the magnet of choice for certain industrial applications. Industrial magnets are highly versatile and are known for assisting in tasks such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), motor activation, and lifting and separating metal. These tasks can span a multitude of industries.

Applications of Industrial Magnets

Different types of industrial magnets are used for different applications. Electromagnets can be used in induction heating, due to their ability to convert electrical current into heat. They are also used in a variety of other applications, such as medical treatment, cooking, and magnetic filters, the latter of which uses magnetic attraction to lift heavy objects or sort or separate scrap metal from ferromagnetic materials. Arc-shaped magnets are a popular choice of magnet for motors, and ceramic magnet discs are commonly used in stereo speakers. Magnet assemblies and rare earth magnets outperform alnico or ceramic magnets in terms of power and are therefore a recommended magnet for sensitive devices, such as medical equipment, sensors, TV monitors, computer hard drives, and electric motors. Magnetic assemblies are generally used for holding and lifting purposes within industries such as agricultural, water treatment, electronic, automotive, engineering, construction, and metal fabricating. More specifically, magnetic assemblies are used for devices such as emergency light bases, stereo cabinets, door latches, money clips, channel letter guides, sign and banner holders, and antenna mounts.

Characteristics of Industrial Magnets

Industrial magnets can be made from different kinds of magnetic materials. Manufacturers fabricate magnets with several properties in mind. These properties include cost, magnetic strength, magnetic retention, or permanence against factors such as corrosion, vibration, or heat, ease of fabrication, and porosity. Different composites are used to make permanent magnets, leading the final product to have a wide range of properties that are appropriate for a variety of applications. For example, physical lifting and separating applications use either alnico or ceramic magnets.

Notable Types of Industrial Magnets

Industrial magnets can be categorized in two ways. The first is non-permanent or temporary. These types of magnets can only retain a magnetic field by way of an external electric current. Otherwise, they only stay magnetized for a short period of time. Electromagnets are examples of temporary magnets. These types of magnets can be made in a wide range of strengths and sizes, include an electric chime doorbell. It only becomes magnetized when the button is pressed and the bar strikes the chime. Other examples of electromagnets include magnetic recording, electric bells, earphones, loudspeakers, and data storage equipment, such as tape recorders.

The second category is permanent. Unlike their non-permanent counterparts, an electric current is not necessary for these magnets to retain a magnetic field. Permanent magnets can be made from a variety of different materials, such as ceramic, alnico, and rare earth. Ceramic magnets are highly cost-effective and are able to retain a magnetic field against external factors, such as vibration and corrosion. However, they have a lesser amount of magnetic power, are brittle, and can break more easily than other magnets. Alnico is an alloy consisting of aluminum, nickel, and cobalt. These magnets are made by way of sintering, or more commonly, casting. Alnico magnets are exceptionally resistant to corrosion and do not require further surface finishing. However, alnico is hard and brittle, as well as prone to cracking and chipping. The name “alnico” is a portmanteau of the types of metals of which it is made. Rare earth magnets are more costly to manufacture, but they are much stronger, and can retain a magnetic field more efficiently than ferrite magnets. The most powerful and the most widely used of the rare earth varieties is the neodymium magnet. Sheet magnets are magnets fabricated from a malleable plastic-ferrite composite extruded into a sheet. These magnets are commonly used in the consumer and automotive industries.

Magnetic Assemblies

Multiple magnets can be used in the tools that perform these functions. These tools are commonly known as magnetic assemblies. Magnetic assemblies can be up to 32 times stronger than a single ceramic magnet, and neodymium assemblies are capable of holding up to 300 points each.

Magnetic assemblies can come in a variety of configurations:

Pocket Magnets
Used to identify valuable ferrous materials, such as steel or iron.
Latch Assemblies
Can be used in the place of standard latch hardware.
Sandwich Magnets
A magnet that is positioned between two pole pieces.
Channel Magnets
Rectangular shaped magnets that focus their strength on one particular surface.
Round Base Magnets
Combined with steel cups and can be made from either neodymium or ceramic.

As manufacturing output rises, manufacturers ask what's next for expansion

October 20, 2014 Data from Federal Reserve Bank illustrated a resurgence in manufacturing production with output increasing 0.5 percent in September, Bloomberg reported. The gain in manufacturing activity reverses the 0.5 percent decline in August. The rise in overall health in the economy lifted up the manufacturing sector. These slight but steady improvements in manufacturing activity could pave the way for expansion at the end of the year and beyond. There are various economic developments that could help propel growth in the manufacturing industry. These include the low... Read More About This

Manufacturing sector solving skills shortage with training programs

September 04, 2014 A new survey by Accenture and The Manufacturing Institute finds a deficit in qualified manufacturing workers may result in a loss revenue for the industry. The report indicated 80 percent of manufacturing executives believe the manufacturing workforce shortage is "moderate" or  "severe," as the U.S. manufacturing sector has the potential to see finances losses up to 11 percent of their total annual revenue. While manufacturing companies are struggling to find skilled workers, they may want to prepare for future growth and make sure their staff have a sufficient... Read More About This

Thinner keyboard draws inspiration from maglev trains

As tech manufacturers aim to make their devices more portable for consumers on the go, electronics firm Darfon has found a way to slim down keyboards with magnets. The magnetic keyboard design helps to make a thinner and customizable typing surface. Darfon introduced the maglev keyboard at a technology convention called Computex held in Taipei this year, tech publication CNET reported. As the name suggests, the Darfon keyboard draws its inspiration from maglev trains that levitate using a combination of permanent magnets and electromagnets. The magnets in... Read More About This
