Advantage:

Neodymium magnets are magnetic elements with greater remanence and high coercivity. Thanks to its magnetic properties, the neodymium magnet is the most powerful on the market, being the most used in the industrial sector.

Neodymium magnets in equal size with other magnets, such as ferrite, are stronger, even in some cases, being smaller, can withstand more strength.

Work temperature:

The temperature is one of the factors to take into account in the application of the magnet.

Currently in IMA we have a wide range of magnets that cover temperatures from 80ºC to 200ºC in Neodymium, from 200ºC to 350ºC, we have the alternative of Samario magnets.

An additional protection for the neodymium magnet will ensure long-term maintenance and durability, avoiding losing its properties and possible corrosion by external or atmospheric chemical agents.

The solution is the coating of the magnet by means of a coating that can be made of different materials such as epoxy, nickel, zinc, copper and others. In this way, the magnet can withstand lower temperatures and prevent its oxidation.


ico-titleAPPLICATIONS:

The set of magnetic properties offered by neodymium magnets allows multiple applications, through great strength and better performance than other materials such as ferrite or alnico:

The manufacture of this magnet by sintering, allows us to achieve a wide variety of designs and shapes, to meet the needs of customers.img_motores_electricoELECTRIC MOTORSimg_turbinas_eolicasWIND TURBINESimg_discos_durosHARD DRIVESimg_altavocesSPEAKERSimg_auricularesHEADPHONESimg_escaneresMAGNETIC R.

ico-titlePRODUCTION PROCESS:

Neodymium magnets must go through different stages of the production process to be subsequently distributed and meet the needs of our customers.

In the first instance, the raw materials or rare earths are introduced in an oven where they are melted, casting the material obtained in molds and cooling it to create solid pieces. A very fine powder is then produced from the solid mass obtained above, which passes through the sintering phase where the state changes to liquid. In this process, the particles are magnetically aligned and bound together to create dense pieces. These pieces are heat treated, cut to the desired shape and size, and finally, subjected to treatments against corrosion. Finally, they magnetize and the magnet is created. That subsequently, it is tested to certify its quality.
