  • An Introduction to Lifting Magnets and How They Work

    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

  • How Ceramic Magnets Are Made

    How Ceramic Magnets Are Made0

    Ceramic magnets are used in countless applications. Also known as ferrite magnets, they are defined by their high iron content. All ceramic magnets are comprised primarily of iron, which is a ferromagnetic metal. Ceramic magnetics, however, typically don’t consist of solid blocks of raw iron. Rather, they require manufacturing. To learn more about the manufacturing

    Types of Neodymium Magnet Coatings0

    Neodymium magnets are recognized for their superior strength. They create a stronger magnetic field than that of other permanent magnets. Most neodymium magnets, in fact, are over 10 times stronger than ceramic magnets. The problem with neodymium, however, is that it’s susceptible to corrosion. Over time, it can corrode after being exposed to oxygen and

  • 5 Facts About Electromagnets

    5 Facts About Electromagnets0

    Not all magnets consist of a solid piece of ferromagnetic material. Some of them are made of wire coils. Known as electromagnets, they use electricity to generate a magnetic field. As electricity flows through the wire coils, it becomes magnetized. When the electricity stops flowing through the wire coils, it loses its magnetic field. Below
