Halbach Array

The manufacture of anisotropic radially magnetised arcs and rings is significantly different to the production of diametrically magnetised rings and arcs. Radially aligned and magnetised anisotropic arcs and rings are only possible in fully dense sintered NdFeB and need a dedicated press tool and magnetising fixture and have a limited physical envelope (Max OD 85mm).…
