Permanent Magnet Classifications and Customizations

There are several different magnet types, which vary depending on their makeup and magnetization, including temporary magnets and permanent magnets. What is a Permanent Magnet? Permanent magnets are “always on,” unlike temporary magnets. Permanent magnets are comprised of alloys of different materials, which influence the final characteristics of the magnet. The strength of the magnet […]
