Selecting A Rare Earth Magnet

Rare Earth Magnets

The term rare earth magnet is a generic name used to describe two types of magnetic material:  samarium cobalt and neodymium iron boron.  Both of these magnetic alloys utilize rare earth elements as the magnetic constituents and the characteristics offered by both material types lend themselves to specific applications.

Understanding N52 Neodymium Magnet Alloy


At Dura Magnetics, we field occasional calls and emails from customers and prospective customers inquiring about a neodymium magnet grade called N52.  So what exactly is N52, do you really need it, and what are some of the potential challenges associated with this type of neodymium magnetic alloy? N52 is shorthand for a neodymium magnet […]

Magnetization Options for Neodymium Iron Boron, Samarium Cobalt, Ceramic Magnets

Our engineering staff frequently fields questions from clients asking about magnetization options for Neodymium Iron Boron, Samarium Cobalt, and Ceramic Block, Ring, Disc, and Arc Magnets.  Typical questions include: Can a disc magnet be magnetized diametrically? What is the difference between a true radially magnetized ring and a radially approximated magnetic ring? Can an arc segment be […]
