Sintered neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) magnet is the most widely used type of rare-earth magnet, which is made from an alloy of neodymium, iron, and boron. Developed in 1982 by General Motors and Sumitomo Special Metals, neodymium magnet is the most powerful commercialized permanent magnets available today, with maximum energy product ranging from 30 MGOe to 52 MGOe, very high remanence and coercivity. It has replaced the traditional magnet materials in the many applications in modern products, such as Electric motors, generators, hard disk drives, MRI, speakers, and etc.
Neodymium magnets have higher remanence, much higher coercivity and energy product, but often lower Curie temperature than other types. Neodymium is alloyed with terbium and dysprosium in order to preserve its magnetic properties at high temperatures.
More information of Neodymium Magnets please check our resource center.
Because of the manufacture equipments constraint, there is a certain limit range of the dimensions and the mechanism accuracy of magnets. Please check the Geometry and Machining Limits of Magnets in our resource center.
Neodymium magnets can be magnetized in any direction as long as it is aligned properly. In some instances multiple pole magnetizations is not possible; when it is possible, special fixtures are required. You can find all information of our Methods of Magnetization in our resource center.
Low grade Neodymium magnet may lose strength if heated above 80°C. High grade Neo magnets have been developed to function at temperatures up to 220°C with little irreversible loss. The need for low temperature coefficient in neodymium magnet applications has triggered several grades to be developed to meet specific operating requirements. Please refer to the Demagnetization Curves of some typical neodymium magnets in our resource center.
Sintered Neodymium magnets are sensitive to the environment and surface treatment is usually required. We provide various metallic and non-metallic coatings to prevent corrosion, which is the major cause of magnetic field failure. You can find all information of our available surface treatments of sintered Neodymium magnets in resource center.
