  • Hard Ferrite vs Soft Ferrite Magnets: What’s the Difference?

    Hard Ferrite vs Soft Ferrite Magnets: What’s the Difference?0

    Magnets are often characterized as either soft ferrite or hard ferrite. Both soft ferrite and hard ferrite magnets are typically made of a ceramic material. That’s why they are known as “ferrites.” Ferrites are magnetic compounds consisting primarily of iron oxide that’s mixed with other metals, some of which may include zinc, nickel, barium and

    5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Lifting Magnet0

    Lifting magnets offer a safe and effective way to lift, as well as move, heavy objects in the workplace. Also known as magnetic lifters, they consist of a controllable magnet. When turned on, lifting magnets will produce a magnetic field. When turned off, this magnetic field will dissipate. While all lifting magnets can be used

    What Is a Demagnetizer and How Does It Work?0

    Magnets are used for many manufacturing-related processes. There are material handling magnets, for example, that live up to their namesake by lifting and moving materials. There are also magnets in tools. Many screwdrivers use magnets to help secure the bit in place. There are a few of many ways that magnets are used in the

    How Does an Electromagnet Work?0

    Magnets are all around us. From cabinet latches and stereo speakers to material handling devices and manufacturing machines, they are used in countless commercial and consumer applications. While all types of magnets are capable of producing a magnetic field, some of them use a different method of operation than others. There are permanent magnets, for

    What Is a Cup Magnet and How Do They Work?0

    Magnets come in a variety of shapes. Some of them are square, whereas others are rectangular. There are also round magnets, such as cup magnets. Cup magnets still produce a magnetic field, but they feature a round shape — as well as a small size — that makes them ideal for certain applications. What are

    An Introduction to Lifting Magnets and How They Work0

    Have you heard of lifting magnets? If so, you might be wondering how they work. Lifting magnets produce the same magnetic field as all other magnets. They are known as “lifting magnets,” however, because they are designed specifically to lift otherwise heavy objects. For a better understanding of lifting magnets, keep reading. What Are Lifting
