5 Benefits of Magnetic Hooks

There are different types of hooks. While many of them feature a screw- or bolt-based mounting system, others do not. Magnetic hooks, for instance, feature a magnet. You can place them on any ferromagnetic surface. As long as a surface … Read More

5 Facts About Ceramic Magnets

When shopping for commercial-grade magnets, you may come across ceramic magnets. They are used in electric motors, lifting devices, stereo speakers, microwaves, communications systems and more. Like all magnets, ceramic magnets produce a magnetic field. But they feature a unique … Read More

5 Facts About Lifting Magnets

Have you heard of lifting magnets? Also known as material handling magnets, they leverage a powerful magnetic field to pick up ferrous materials and workpieces. Rather than attempting to physically lift ferrous materials and workpieces — something that could result … Read More

How Heat Affects Neodymium Magnets

Neodymium magnets are recognized for their superior strength. A type of rare-Earth magnet, they are comprised of a neodymium alloy. While there are other types of rare-Earth magnets — samarium cobalt — neodymium is the strongest. A typical neodymium magnet … Read More

5 Facts About Demagnetizers

Need to remove a magnetic field from tools or workpieces? Look no further than a demagnetizer. Demagnetizers are devices that, as the name suggests, are designed to demagnetize objects. Also known as degaussers, they work by changing the orientation of … Read More

Ferromagnetic vs Paramagnetic vs Diamagnetic: What’s the Difference?

Different types of materials behave differently when exposed to a magnetic field. Some types of materials are immune to the effects of magnets. Other materials may pull towards or push away from magnets. Ferromagnetic, paramagnetic and diamagnetic are often used … Read More

Single vs Double-Barrel Magnetic Catches: What’s the Difference?

Barrel magnetic catches are commonly used to secure cabinets, doors, electronic enclosures and other objects. They feature a barrel-shaped permanent magnet and an accompanying ferromagnetic plate. You can mount the permanent magnet on the object that you wish to open, … Read More

How to Choose Flexible Magnets

Not all magnets are rigid. While all magnets are able to pull ferromagnetic materials by generating a magnetic field, some of them are flexible. Flexible magnets are permanent magnets that, as the name suggests, can bend and flex. Most flexible … Read More
