Magnets in Industrial Products
For more than 70 years, Adams has delivered high quality magnetic solutions addressing a wide variety of industrial needs. We’ve provided stock and custom industrial magnets for applications including basic holding, precision dipole assemblies, complex hysteresis torque couplings, and more for products ranging from HVAC units and furniture to pinball machines to bottle capping equipment (and everything in between!). Our expert engineering staff relishes creating innovative solutions that improve performance, supply chain reliability, and cost. Challenge us today!
Our industrial magnets have helped:
- improve the performance of linear and rotary torque couplings used to tighten bottle caps
- improve the reliability of antenna mounts on ferrous surfaces
- enable actuators to function in the harshest environments via consistent magnetic fields
- ensure the precision sensing of robotic arm movements and the enabling of their drive motors
- facilitate the detection of Helium in leak detectors using precision dipole assemblies
- and so much more!
Added Value Assemblies
When you need custom magnet assemblies and permanent magnets that perform optimally over the long-
term in the toughest conditions for industrial applications, Adams delivers. Let us employ our knowledge of the physical and mechanical properties of magnetic materials from the earliest stages of your design to suggest the most effective, lightest, and cost-effective options.
From the simple to the complex, our team of experts can evaluate your assembly process to determine outsourcing viability. We offer industrial magnet assemblies of ferrous and non-ferrous components, large to small, and everything in between. From our standard round base, channel, and sandwich assemblies to highly engineered and custom designs, Adams has the knowledge, expertise, and systems in place to meet even the most stringent of quality standards.

Most industrial magnets are assembled into magnet systems using adhesives. Such construction may require the adhesion of multiple magnets to one another or to support parts. But before doing so, several factors must be considered to assure the effective performance of the magnet, the adhesive, and the resulting bond. These include the chemical and physical properties of the magnets and the surfaces to which they are bonded. Detailed coverage of all these factors, along with some adhesives to try, is covered in our white paper Gluing Magnets.
Adams uses the most up-to-date magnetic modeling software that can accurately predict the performance of virtually any type of magnet, magnet assembly, or electromagnet. It can predict magnetic fields from sensor magnets, pull forces from holding assemblies, torque from torque assemblies, and electromagnet performance.
Surface Protection: Coating Rare Earth Magnets
Corrosion-resistant coatings can be applied to magnets directly after production and cleaning, and prior to magnetization. Standard coatings include nickel, epoxy, and zinc spray coatings. Surface protection may also be applied to magnets in the finished product system. Contact Adams applications support to help you select the best coating for your application.
