Explore Our Samarium Cobalt Capabilities

samarium cobalt magnets
  • Samarium Cobalt rare earth magnets are often used in high temperature applications needing high magnetic performance and where magnetic stability over a wide range of temperatures is important.
  • Dura can help optimize performance and cost with SmCo magnets in grades from 16 to 32 MGOe and temperatures up to 350°C/662°F.
  • Stock Samarium Cobalt magnets also available to reduce development and production lead times.

Available Grades of Samarium Cobalt Magnets:

Many grades of Samarium Cobalt exist to support a variety of industrial and commercial applications.  The range of Samarium Cobalt Magnet grades is typically 16 to 32 MGOe.  These ranges allow for balancing cost, magnetic performance, and operational temperature resistance.
