1. Magnet Fishermen Find Stolen Item

    Magnet Fishermen Find Stolen Item
    You never know what you’ll find when you go magnet fishing. Some go in search of treasure, others do it to make a positive impact in the community, and others go to say they gave it a try. Recently, a father-son duo made an incredible discovery while magnet fishing in England that helped bring closure to a robbery victim from 2000. Let’s see how magnets made this discovery possible.  Continue reading →
  2. Magnetic Force vs. Magnetic Field

    Magnetic Force vs. Magnetic Field
    Magnet users of all experience levels have likely heard of magnetic force and magnetic fields. While these phrases are used quite often, many might not be aware of the difference between them. Today, we are taking a look at the basics of both concepts.  Continue reading →

  4. DIY: Magnetic Hammer Handle

    DIY: Magnetic Hammer Handle
    Numerous DIY projects require the use of a hammer, but today’s idea actually includes making an improvement to the tool itself. By creating this magnetic hammer handle, you can keep nails with you rather than holding them in one hand and your hammer in the other. Take a look at how you can make this improvement and enjoy some added convenience.  Continue reading →
  5. Where Would We Be Without Magnets?

    Where Would We Be Without Magnets?
    If we erased magnets from our history and current existence, where would we be? It’s actually a mind-bending thought experiment to consider. Perhaps, at first, you might consider how a few different industries would be altered; however, given enough thought, you would realize that our society would be fundamentally different, and not only would a lack of magnets change certain industries, it would completely eliminate others. If we’re being honest, we simply couldn’t erase magnets, especially because magnetism is one of the fundamental forces in nature — the magnetosphere sustains life on planet Earth.  Continue reading →
  6. Bottle Storage in Your Fridge

    Bottle Storage in Your Fridge
    There may be nothing better than kicking back after a long week at work and enjoying a movie or sporting event with your favorite drink in hand. Today, we are taking a look at a fun and useful way to store the bottles in your fridge by creating a magnetic bottle loft. The floating bottles also create more space for other items, meaning that overcrowding in your fridge is a thing of the past! Let’s take a look at how you make better fridge storage a reality!  Continue reading →
  7. Magnetic Systems in Warehouse Transportation

    Magnetic Systems in Warehouse Transportation
    Several companies around the world have really started to investigate the advantages of using robotic systems that rely on magnets to transport things around warehouses. This includes the ability to package and lift heavy items. Forklift trucks, for example, can be controlled automatically by computers using magnets to guide their movements. Magnets are actually placed in the ground at warehouses. They’re at precise distances and arranged in specific ways that allow the vehicle to orient, follow a path, and drive without manpower.  So, what other warehouse machinery can be upgraded with magnets?  Continue reading →
  8. Permanent Magnets Used in Robots

    Permanent Magnets Used in Robots
    For years, permanent magnets have played a vital role in the ever-expanding robotics industry, specifically in robot manufacturing. The design process pushes boundaries, is highly focused on sensors and motion, and must fulfill specific conditions (e.g, magnetic tolerances, parameters, and assemblies). As the design and manufacturing process continue to evolve and require more precision, there is a need to select more precise magnets and enact more advanced ideas. In many cases, this requires permanent, neodymium magnets. Continue reading →
  9. Lasers On Magnets: A New Way to Store Big Data

    Lasers On Magnets: A New Way to Store Big Data
    “The mysterious force we use to stick our travel souvenirs to the fridge is the same one used to store our digital data!” What an incredible concept — as explained in an article Kshiti Mishra, magnetism is used to store our digital data. Not only that, but there’s a new way to store data on the horizon. Put simply, this new method involves shooting lasers on magnets. Yes, it sounds like a chapter in an old sci-fi novel, but no, this is real life.  Continue reading →
  10. Digital Sensors and Magnets

    Digital Sensors and Magnets
    Digital sensors are in a multitude of devices you use each day. This includes door sensors for appliances, car sensors, position-tracking devices, and antitheft software. These devices also use magnets to help accomplish their goal. Keep reading to learn how this technology works and how you can protect your devices from damage. Continue reading →
