Neodymium Magnet Strength

Neodymium Rare Earth Magnets are the strongest commercially available permanent magnets in the world.  Originally invented by General Motors and Sumitomo Special Metals in the early 1980s, Neodymium Magnets are a key component in mobile phones, computers, wind turbines, and modern cars.  The list of applications is nearly endless. As the name suggests, the prime…

Battle of the Rare Earth Magnets

Neodymium Iron Boron NdFeB (i.e. Neodymium) and Samarium Cobalt SmCo are both ultra-strong rare-earth permanent magnets.  Both are brittle in nature and subject to catastrophic damage if subject to severe impact (i.e. dropping).  However, that is where the similarity ends and, when selecting a magnet material for a specific application, our design engineers assess each…

Car Dashboard Magnetic Sensors

Sensors are used everywhere from vehicle engine management systems to Smartphones determining if the flip cover accessory is closed. Modern everyday life would be very different without sensors and the operation of many of these sensors rely on magnetism. As products evolve, so have the range and specification of sensor magnets. A magnetic sensor converts…
