Types Of Rare Earth Magnets

Rare earth magnets have revolutionized the world of magnetics in the last few decades. Their development began in the 1970’s. Scientists first made these special permanent magnets with alloys composed of rare earth elements. They are significantly stronger than regular, ferrite magnets. Industry has put them to use for various tasks, such as in rare […]

Rare Earth Magnets: Properties And Examples

The term “rare earth magnets” is a bit of a misnomer. The 17 elements that comprise this group are actually quite abundant, though they are scattered over vast lands so gathering them tend to be costly. When combined, the resulting metals exhibit incredible magnetic properties. They can generate an attractive force thrice as strong as […]

Powerful Little Magnets

One might think that something called “rare” would be difficult or hard to find. Well, this is not the case with rare earth magnets. These powerful metal forces can have five to fifteen times the level of magnetic power than traditional refrigerator magnets and are very commonly found in industrial business settings. The most common […]

Neodymium Magnets The Rare Earth Magnet

If you own a cordless tool, computer, printer, microphone, speaker, a purse with a magnetic closure, or car with a DC motor you are benefiting from the magnetic properties of a neodymium magnet. The neodymium magnet is the strongest permanent magnet ever made. Other uses for the magnet are crafts and various other applications using […]
