The application of Neodymium magnets is wide-spread throughout industry. They are present everywhere from mobile phones to heavy lifting, microphones and signage. Neodymium is a slightly malleable rare earth metal that is perfect for shaping into a hard and versatile magnet that is utilised in multiple business applications. Strong magnets are so widely used you could be in the presence of one at any given time, in any given location. The Neodymium magnet is the strongest in the world and come in magnitudes from N24 to N55 on the magnetism scale. Reputable suppliers such as RS Components provide a wide range of strong magnets, including the Neodymium magnet.
Doors, Drawers, Cupboards and More
Kitchen and bathroom designers love the Neodymium shallow pot magnet, which provides concealed closing mechanisms for doors and cupboards. The strong magnet is behind the soft closing technology that is popular for safety. It also lengthens the life of hinges, doors and drawers, by removing the vibration caused by slamming, that can loosen screws and knobs or damage construction material.
The superior strength of strong magnets is also applied to hold, fix and release many different materials such as stone, glass, plastics, timbers and fabric. In this application, Neo magnets are often implemented in signage and displays for advertising.
The Neodymium ring magnet offers a seriously strong yet lightweight lifting magnet in a convenient dimension. These are the strongest magnets available and not only provide safe and secure lifting for heavy ferrous items but will complete the job swiftly without the need for hooks, grabs or slings. The systems provide factories, construction sites and mines with an efficient and safe lifting method.
The Eclipse neodymium deep pot bi-pole magnet, for example, works by placing two poles close together to achieve very strong gripping forces.
Strong magnets are present throughout computers and mobile phone technology. Hard drives rely on electromagnetic to record data, and in the actuator that positions the read/writer head. For mobile phone applications, small powerful neodymium magnets are applied in vibration motors and voice coil motors taking them less than a second to activate the auto-focus mechanism.
Speakers and microphones
The increasing quality of ear-phones is a result of strong magnets, allowing the size of earphones to shrink while the sound quality is improved and enhanced.
In a speaker, the use of strong neodymium magnets in tweeters creates a powerful driver that is lightweight yet produces extraordinary sound in a conveniently small package. The Neodymium magnet contains extremely large quantities of magnetic energy packed into a tiny footprint. The small profile tweeters that are possible with the strength of the magnet results in lower distortion at all levels of operation and an overall better performance.
The magnets are available in a vast array of shapes and sizes, designed for purpose for easy installation and replacement. Coating Neodymium magnets with zinc, nickel or aluminium prevents corrosion and lengthens the life of the magnet. The use of neodymium has transformed many industries and will continue to take industries such as electric vehicle manufacturing and the Internet of Things into the future.
