Explore Our Bonded Magnet Capabilities

Bonded magnets can be formed by either Injection Molding or Compression Bonded. Neodymium is the most popular material to use but these can also be produced using Samarium Cobalt and Strontium Ferrite and combined with a rubber binder to form the finished part. Injection molding lends itself to be used in either higher volume or more complex parts. Compression bonded is used frequently by customers wanting to machine their own parts or lower volume runs reducing the need for custom tooling. This material lends itself to easily be machined using standard machining practices. Keep in mind this type of material has a maximum operating temperature around 165°C – 180°C. Much lower than its fully sintered counterpart. Contact one of our sales engineers today for your bonded magnet requirements, we can assist you with your design and fabrication.

Bonded Magnet Applications:

  • Sensors
  • Brushless DC Motors

Bonded Magnet Characteristics:

  • Materials are isotropic and can be magnetized
    in any direction
  • Wide range of existing tool sizes are available
    in rings, discs and rectangles.
  • Existing Multipole magnetizing fixtures for quick prototyping
  • Easily machined
  • Existing Multipole rings simplify assembly verse arc sepments

Other Magnet Types to Consider:

Neodymium is the strongest available rare earth magnet alloy at up to 55MGOe and temperatures up to 230°C/446°F.

Samarium Cobalt magnets are available in grades 16 to 35 MGOe with operating temperatures up to 350°C/662°F.

DFARS & ITAR Compliance

Limited availability of Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) compliant material can make small magnet production runs costly. However, we stock various grades at our U.S. facility, enabling us to provide cost-effective, DFARS-compliant magnets for all customers if needed, regardless of project size or requirements.
