Compact knowledge in our book "Permanent Magnets"

Materials, magnet technology and applications

Sintered, plastic-bonded, pressed or injection-moulded: the world of magnets is diverse. Whether in material development, process technologies or product manufacture, many technical terms are used when working with magnets. This terminology is as complex as the magnet world itself. As a consequence, we have consolidated the subjects of materials, magnet technology and applications into a single book for you.

The book "Permanent Magnets" has been published as volume 387 in "The Library of Technology" series. This book provides a compact overview of permanent magnet properties, the various types of magnet, as well as their production and further processing capabilities. Material tables stating magnetic characteristics and specific examples of applications help you in selecting a suitable permanent magnet.

Permanent magnets for technical applications are essentially based on hard ferrites and rare earth metals. Depending on the material type, the achievable maximum energy product can vary by a multiple. Oxide ceramic and metal magnets are sintered, while plastic-bonded ones are injection-moulded or pressed.

Magnetic fields enable torques to be transferred without friction, switching processes to be triggered without mechanical contact and also positions or movements to be detected free of any contact. As a consequence, significant areas of application for permanent magnets are permanently excited synchronous motors and generators, clutches and brakes as well as magnetic field sensor technology.

The book was published in 2016 by: Süddeutscher Verlag onpact GmbH ( ISBN 978-3-86236-100-7, 72 pages, 37 coloured illustrations, 8 tables).

We would be delighted to provide our customers, partners and trade fair visitors with a copy.
