  • The Differences in N-Ratings for Neodymium Magnets

    Every type of rare earth magnet, whether neodymium, AlNiCo, or something else, has its own alphanumerical system for classifying strength. Each one is unique, and there’s no simple formula for translating a system from one magnet type into the system for another.  Continue reading

  • What a Gaussmeter Can Do for You: Understanding Parts and Features

    Because a magnetic field is invisible, obtaining a complete, quantitative representation of it requires measurement of both its strength and its direction. The ability to do that might sound like science fiction, but thanks to a discovery made nearly 140 years ago, we have the gaussmeter—the tool we now use to determine the strength of magnets.  Continue reading

  • Meet the Magnetar

    October is obviously a spooky time (because of Halloween and all that) so, we’re hoping this blog will give you a little fright. After that, it’s back to your regularly scheduled magnetic news and such. In this blog, we’re discussing one of the scariest celestial bodies in the known universe - the magnetar. Continue reading

  • Exploring The Mars Magnetotail

    Research presented at the annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society’s Division for Planetary Sciences has drawn our attention to Mars’ unique magnetic tail and the way magnetic fields, both on the planet and from solar winds, are affecting the tail’s movements. The Mars magnetotail might even provide insights into future colonization efforts on the red planet.  Continue reading

  • Modifying Magnets: What’s Possible With Cutting, Drilling, Welding, and Soldering

    Because magnets are so versatile, they’re used in many applications. Occasionally, however, customers come to us wondering if they can expand a magnet’s capabilities though cutting, drilling, soldering, or welding. While this is possible under the very best circumstances, it’s extremely difficult to perform correctly. If one isn’t careful, a powerful magnet will quickly crumble or lose its magnetic field. That’s why it’s generally best to go with a custom-ordered magnet instead of modifying a production magnet yourself.  Continue reading
