Leading the Industry in Customer Satisfaction
Adams Magnetic Products leads the magnetic products industry in customer satisfaction. How do we know? Like many organizations, we use a customer survey tool called net promoter score, or NPS, to understand our customers’ perceptions. We ask our customers to answer a simple question on a bi-annual basis: “How likely is it that you would […]
Measuring Remanence and Coercivity with a Hysteresisgraph
When you come right down to it, permanent magnets have two major features: They produce magnetic fields They resist demagnetization As with any technology that’s been around for a while, the industry has specific terms to describe these features: Remanence and Coercivity. Remanence tells the user how […]
What is the MAGNETIC MOMENT?
The magnetic moment is a property that we use to verify the quality of our magnets. It is a way to measure the strength of a magnet and is widely used throughout the industry. Moreover, it is an easy, quick, and repeatable measurement. The magnet grade and magnet volume define the magnetic moment. Testing for […]
Is it time to embrace chaos in the supply chain?
It wasn’t easy to come up with a proper headline for this story. So many came to mind, like Woe Woe Woe our Boat, Whack-a-Mole Magnet Market, Endangered Magnets, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and even: Christmas is at risk! We’ve endured a lot over the past 18 months: Tariffs COVID (quarantines, lockdowns, labor shortages, etc.) […]
Measuring Permanent Magnet Characteristics with a Helmholtz Coil and Fluxmeter
Magnetic fields are invisible, so there is no way to tell if a magnet is good or bad just by looking at it. There are a variety of tools for testing available, but one of the simplest and most popular is a Helmholtz coil. Connected to a fluxmeter, you can use it to measure the […]
Did you know? Adams can test the angular direction (ϕ, θ) of magnetization!
How well do you need to know your magnets? Using our m-axis testing equipment, magnetic moment, remanence and magnetization direction of magnetic dipoles can be characterized with high precision. The calculation is based on determination of the dipole using an integrated AMR sensor set-up. The three-dimensional position (x, y, z) of the magnet as well […]
The Basics of Magnetism
To understand what makes a material magnetic, you have to think small. Really small. Like atom small. Atoms are the basic building blocks that come together to form molecules, which come together for form, well, just about everything around you! Inside every atom there are protons, neutrons, and electrons. Protons have a positive electrical charge, […]
The Care and Feeding of Different Kinds of Magnets
Magnets are like people. Some don’t like the heat, some don’t like the cold. Some are strong and some damage easily. And some are more dangerous than others. It may seem like a lot to keep in mind, but handling and storing magnets properly is the best way to assure optimal and long-lasting magnetization. Here […]
