How to Safely Handle Magnets

magnet chipped due to poor handling practices

Magnets are produced in a wide array of sizes, shapes, and strengths, but there are similarities between all magnetic materials.  They are all relatively brittle which when coupled with their magnetic strength present a number of issues.  They also invoke curiosity, and who hasn’t heard the adage of what curiosity did to the cat.  Handling […]

Magnet Assemblies

Neo Radial Ring Assembly

Each post in our Tech Talk blog is designed to help you better understand the complex and sometimes confusing world of magnets.  In recent posts, we discussed material grade selection, machinability of magnetic alloy, and understanding how materials such as N52 neodymium are classified.  This post explains how magnetic assemblies work and why they are […]

What is Maximum Energy Product / BHmax and How Does It Correspond to Magnet Grade?

BHmax-Vertex of Parabola

The term Maximum Energy Product (BHmax) is a commonly used, but often misunderstood figure of merit of magnets.  The BHmax is an Energy Density and it is oftentimes used to denote grade.  The grade convention is especially used for Rare Earth magnets, (Neodymium Iron Boron Magnets and Samarium Cobalt Magnets).  For instance, a grade 48 […]
