  6. 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 →
  7. 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 →

  10. How Are Neodymium Magnets Made?

    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 →
