  1. Tips to Separate High Powered Magnets

    Tips to Separate High Powered Magnets
    Some of our magnets are strong, really strong. If you’ve ever ordered any neodymium magnets from us, or have simply experimented with high powered magnets, you know that once opposite poles attract, it can be tough to separate them. Also, getting in the way of two attracting poles is dangerous and could result in broken glass or bones. When using strong magnets it is important to follow safety rules and tips. Below are some tips that we have compiled for separating strong magnets. Continue reading →
  2. What is Gauss Rating and How to Use a Gauss Meter

    What is Gauss Rating and How to Use a Gauss Meter
    First, to understand what a gaussmeter is, we need to know what gauss rating means. Gauss is the unit that measures magnetic field B, or magnetic flux density. It was named for the German mathematician and physicist that built the early instrument to measure magnetic fields, Carl Friedrich Gauss. His version was essentially a bar magnet suspended by some string. Continue reading →

    How Are Neodymium Magnets Made?
    Magnetism may interact with the Earth’s natural magnetic field, however, today’s magnets are not formed naturally. One of the only naturally occurring magnets is lodestone, but its magnet strength is too weak for use in practical applications. Modern magnets are much stronger, because they are created from alloys of ferromagnetic metals, which include: iron, nickel, cobalt and a few others. Ferromagnetism actually means the ability for certain materials to be magnetic or magnetized. Continue reading →

    How to Enter Our Everyday Magnets Photo Contest
    Believe it or not, the functionality of magnets reaches far beyond just adorning your fridge. We use magnets everyday and so often that we may not even realize that we are using them. Honestly, our lives would be very different without magnetism. For instance, magnets are used in head phones, computers, cars, recycling centers, blenders, handbags and much more. Even now, inventors, scientists and researchers are looking towards magnetism for use in several medical and technological innovations such as the treatment of cancer and depression. Often, when customers contact us with magnet or other product questions, we also get to hear about the creative and exciting projects that they are working on. But, we’d also like to see their projects and end results. How have you used magnets? Share a photo of your magnet projects with us in our “Everyday Magnets Photo Contest” and you’ll also be entered for the chance to win $100. Continue reading →
  6. Magnet Safety: Technology That You Should Never Put Near High Powered Magnets

    Magnet Safety: Technology That You Should Never Put Near High Powered Magnets
    We love magnets, but we also don’t underestimate their power. With that in mind, there are a few things that you should never place near them. This is especially true with technology. Today’s computers and other devices are often comprised of magnetic materials, meaning that they can be destroyed when they come face-to-face with high powered magnets. Below we have listed a few tech items that you should keep away from magnets and what may happen if they do come in contact with one. Continue reading →
  7. Permanent Magnet Strength

    Permanent Magnet Strength
    There are two primary types of magnets: electromagnets and permanent magnets. Electromagnets are essentially magnets that have an on and off switch. They have magnet power in the presence of an electrical current and lose their power when this current stops. As you may have inferred by their name, permanent magnets can create and perpetually maintain their own magnetic field. However, there are a few things that can affect magnet strength. So, how permanent is their magnetism? Continue reading →
