  1. Halbach Array for Electric Motors

    Halbach Array for Electric Motors
    Let’s talk about the Halbach Array. A phenomenon that was initially discovered in 1973, this arrangement of permanent magnets functions to make the magnetic field one side stronger while negating the opposite field to nearly zero. For comparison, with a single magnet, you will have equal strength on either end. It wasn’t until the 1980s that a physicist applied the Halbach array as a means to focus particle beams, electrons, and lasers.  Continue reading →
  2. Permanent Magnets for Different Kinds of Sensors

    Permanent Magnets for Different Kinds of Sensors
    Permanent magnets are used in a variety of sensor applications; but what exactly is a sensor? A sensor measures input from its environment and converts it into data. That data might be collected and interpreted visually by a person (e.g., glass thermometer), or electronically by a machine. Sensors measure all sorts of things, including distance, weight, temperature, proximity, position, velocity, direction, etc.  Continue reading →
  3. Is it Time to Replace Your Magnet?

    Is it Time to Replace Your Magnet?
    If well-cared-for and left unexposed to external influences, a permanent magnet will stay strong for a very long time. When in use, it’s a slightly different story. Regardless of how you’re using your magnets, but certainly, in business and industrial applications, it’s important to know what can weaken a magnet so you can replace it as necessary. Replacing your magnets at the most appropriate interval is an important way to protect the value of your investment.  Continue reading →
  4. What Are “Air Gaps” & How Do They Impact Magnets?

    What Are “Air Gaps” & How Do They Impact Magnets?
    There are many factors to consider when purchasing magnets for your business. You must consider the size, shape, pole strength, magnetization direction, etc. One important factor that is often overlooked is the air gap.  What exactly is the “air gap?” Continue reading →
  5. Magnet Storing Tips, According To Magnet Type

    Magnet Storing Tips, According To Magnet Type
    Magnet safety entails how to handle magnets, where to store them, and the ideal storage environment. It is especially important when handling strong industrial magnets. If magnet safety is not followed, it can lead to personal injury or damage directly to the magnet, such as breaking, chipping, and cracking. Continue reading →
  6. Three Ways To Use Industrial Magnets On Cruise Ships

    Three Ways To Use Industrial Magnets On Cruise Ships
    In a recent blog post, we shared three magnetic hacks to upgrade your cabin, such as using hook magnets to hang items or clip magnets to organize your stateroom. Similar to these hacks, there are many cruise ship hacks on an industrial level.  Because magnets can have a strong pull force, are weather-resistant and durable, and maintain their properties both indoors and outdoors, they are ideal to use on cruise ships. This is largely because many walls and surfaces are magnetic.  Continue reading →
  7. Robo-arms, Harpoons, and Revolving Magnets: The Race to Clean up Space Junk

    Robo-arms, Harpoons, and Revolving Magnets: The Race to Clean up Space Junk
    It’s sad but true—these days, we even have litter in space. That’s right, there’s been a rise in space junk that directly coincides with the number of private companies that are now capable of putting satellites in orbit. The US space agency says there are more than 100 million pieces of space junk and debris currently in orbit. Aside from being a somewhat shameful introduction to the final frontier, space junk also presents a series of perils to astronauts and even us back on Earth.  Continue reading →

    Magnetic Locks: How they Work and Their Uses
    More and more, we are seeing properties gravitate to the use of electromagnetic locks in their buildings. With their ease of installation, security, and fast building access, it’s no question why these types of locks are becoming a popular option. Continue reading →
  9. How to Make Magnetic Dish Towels

    How to Make Magnetic Dish Towels
    When you’re in the kitchen making dinner or cleaning up, do you ever find yourself struggling to remember where you put the dish towel? You turn right, you turn left, you make a full circle, and only then do you finally find it all the way down the counter. By sewing a magnet into your dish towels, you give yourself the option to stick it in the most convenient places — the fridge or the dishwasher.  Continue reading →
