Mining the Urban Environment The anticipated global increase in production and consumption of electronic goods and electric vehicles puts a huge strain on raw material reserves. Subsequently, the focus has turned from mining raw materials to reclaiming, reusing and recycling secondary materials. This is known as ‘Mining the Urban Environment’. Magnets and Magnetisers at Cenex…

A Review of the UK Magnetics Society’s Ewing Event 2018 This year’s 31st Ewing Event, organised by the UK Magnetics Society and sponsored by Bunting Magnetics, focused on the important role of ‘magnets’ in the future.  Indeed, it is widely recognised that magnetic fields are the ideal, low-energy way for creating motion. At the event, there…

Industrial magnetisers

Magnetiser Designed For Precision Charging of Small Magnets High strength magnets (eg Neodymium Rare Earth) are a vital part in many everyday electric appliances.  Charging those small magnets for use in electronics applications often requires a high degree of accuracy.  One typical example is where the magnet interacts with a sensor to confirm that a…
