    If you’re wondering whether you need a customized magnet from Apex, or if perhaps there is an existing in-stock product that suits your needs, this is the blog for you. What we can tell you is that your original question — Should I go custom? — begets more questions. No matter which direction you choose — to customize or not to customize — we can help you determine and make your next move.  Continue reading →
  2. More on Magnetic Poles and Industry Standards

    More on Magnetic Poles and Industry Standards
    Truthfully, most of us know the bare minimum about magnetic poles. We know there are two of them — North and South poles — and that opposites attract. Some of us may even know that this is referred to as magnetic dipole (di meaning two). But what are magnetic poles really?  Simply put, magnetics poles are the surfaces from which invisible magnetic field lines of magnetic flux emit and connect -- leaving the North end of a magnet to enter the South end. If you’re going to be using magnets regularly, especially as an effort to streamline, organize, or otherwise improve your business, continue reading to understand more about poles.  Continue reading →
  3. Use Magnets to Reduce Risk in Construction Zones

    Use Magnets to Reduce Risk in Construction Zones
    Construction zones are places of planning, craftsmanship, and if we’re being real, quite a bit of potential danger. There are plenty of opportunities for something to fall on your head, trip you up, or crumble beneath your weight. Because of all this risk, construction workers need fixed, reliable blueprints and solid working tools and materials to reduce as much risk as possible. As you might have suspected if you’ve read our blog before — magnets are the answer! Continue reading →
  4. Permanent Magnets Used as Tools for Welding

    Permanent Magnets Used as Tools for Welding
    Welding is the process of joining or fusing materials –– primarily metal –– through controlled heat, melting the workpieces together and then letting them cool into place. It’s used in an assortment of major industries including aerospace, automobiles, construction and infrastructure, manufacturing, railroads, and shipping. So...how do magnets fit into this equation?   Continue reading →

    Whether you own or manage a mom-and-pop shop, a fast-casual restaurant, or something that might be considered more of a fine dining experience, you can use magnets to level up your restaurant! From organizing items in your kitchen, discreetly holding your point of sales (POS) system, wherever it might be, and advertising, be it in your own window or on a vehicle, the possibilities are endless with magnets.  Continue reading →
  6. The Three S’s of Industrial Magnets: Sweepers, Sorters, and Separators

    The Three S’s of Industrial Magnets: Sweepers, Sorters, and Separators
    When it comes to industrial uses for magnets, there are three pillars –– sweepers, sorters, and separators. These three categories, and the magnets that fall under them, are vital to the operation of warehouses, loading docks, construction zones, conveyor belts and more, and in all sorts of industries. Without them, there would be more accidents, lower quality control, and overspent budgets.  Let’s dig into their individual strengths and specifications! Continue reading →
  7. Using Magnets to Collect Martian Dust

    Using Magnets to Collect Martian Dust
    Space exploration may still seem like science fiction to some, but rest assured, it is very real, and humanity is learning more each year. Our scientists are actually starting to get down to the nitty-gritty of space, meaning Martian rocks and dust. This highly magnetic material is collected by exploratory rovers so that we can study and reveal any secrets it might hold about Mars’ past, specifically in relation to geologic history.  Continue reading →
  8. Chemical Process Industries and Magnetically Coupled Pumps

    Chemical Process Industries and Magnetically Coupled Pumps
    In the Chemical Process Industries (CPI), you have to pay special attention to the interaction between the “media” or type of chemical you are pumping and the pump itself. Sometimes the media is acidic, toxic, corrosive, abrasive, or gas-laden, meaning it can be extremely valuable as well as extremely dangerous. Roughly 90% of damage to CPI pump systems results from poor design (for example, a leak in the seal) or an operating error. The damage can lead to downtime, incurred cost, and potentially, injured employees.  Continue reading →
  9. Preventing Catastrophe: Magnets Used in Breakaway Gas Pumps

    Preventing Catastrophe: Magnets Used in Breakaway Gas Pumps
    It’s well known that magnets are often used to prevent unwanted and unpleasant events like break-ins and car accidents. But what about explosions? If someone goes to a gas station to fill up and gets distracted, they may try to drive away with the gas hose still attached to their tank. This one moment of thoughtlessness can lead to catastrophe. Most gas station owners have at least a few stories of people driving away with the gas pump still attached to their car, sometimes taking the hose right along with them. It’s a common enough occurrence  that the industry designs pumps for the situation called breakaways. Traditional breakaway pumps function almost like a lizard tail — separating into two pieces with enough force is applied. However, traditional technology is often designed for single-use, and requires upwards of 350 pounds of pull force to separate for inspection. This shortens service life and increases the business owner’s maintenance costs. Continue reading →
