  1. Magnetic Terminology Guide For Purchasing

    Magnetic Terminology Guide For Purchasing
    Purchasing magnets can be an overwhelming task, especially if you are not familiar with key magnetic terms. For instance, when you are filling out your Apex custom magnet request form, you may not know what the terms “magnetic strength rating” or “direction of magnetization” mean. Without understanding magnetic terminology, your request form may not directly align with your magnetic needs. However, there’s no need to worry — Apex Magnets is here to help! We’ve highlighted some of the key magnetic terms that are helpful to understand when purchasing magnets for your business. Continue reading →
  2. Magnets 101: Magnetization Direction

    Magnets 101: Magnetization Direction
    Here at Apex, we believe it’s important to understand the science behind our magnets and share them with you through “magnet 101s" so you can make an informed decision for your next project. Our next “magnet 101” is diving into one necessary element of neodymium magnets— magnetization direction. Essentially, neodymium magnets are formed with a specific magnetization direction depending on their shape to ensure they’re as strong as possible. Let’s dive deeper into what magnetization direction is and why it’s important! Continue reading →

  9. Mobile Hall Sensor Array for Detecting Ferrous Objects In Floors, Walls, and Pipelines

    Mobile Hall Sensor Array for Detecting Ferrous Objects In Floors, Walls, and Pipelines
    Sometimes, in the construction and use of pipelines, or during the construction/tear-down of buildings, you may need to detect and remove some unknown ferrous object from inside pipes, behind walls, and under flooring. To safely detect the position of an object, you can use a Mobile Hall Sensor Array.  The main benefit of this method is that it’s considered a non-destructive evaluation (NDE), which is exactly what it sounds like… non-destructive. You can determine your next move before making any costly demolition choices that could cause damage to your product or equipment, or even cause serious injury to employees. Continue reading →
  10. Magnets Used in Law Enforcement to Secure Underwater Evidence

    Magnets Used in Law Enforcement to Secure Underwater Evidence
    If you work in law enforcement, then you are probably well-aware that one of the most common illegal dumping grounds for guns is… underwater. Whether these guns are actual murder weapons, linked to a crime, or just purchased illegally, guns are often disposed of in lakes, rivers, streams, swamps, sewers, and wells. Using the power of magnets, law enforcement teams can bring important evidence –– the weapon in question –– to the surface, and in some cases, use it to identify a suspect and close a case.
