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 […]

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, […]

How to Test a Magnet Using a Gaussmeter

Gaussmeter Testing 101 What Is a Gauss Meter Used For, How Does a Gaussmeter Work, & How to Use a Gaussmeter A Gaussmeter uses a probe to measure the magnetic field around a magnet at a specific location. The user positions the tip of the probe on the magnet or a pre-determined location near to […]

What Are Neodymium Magnets?

About Neodymium Magnets and Their Applications Neodymi-what?! If you’re browsing our website, you undoubtedly have an interest in magnets, but you might not have heard of neodymium rare earth magnets. A neodymium magnet is the strongest known type of permanent magnet, and it’s one we supply for a variety of industrial and commercial uses here […]

When It Comes to Sustainability, Magnets Just Click

True to their nature, magnets are attracting attention in all kinds of industries. Suitable for an enormous range of surfaces, magnets provide the strength and durability of mechanical closures and fasteners, with the mobility of temporary hangers. In the printing industry, magnets enable signage and displays to be assembled and updated quickly and neatly with […]

How did Mars lose its magnetism?

Mars is the only major planet in our solar system that doesn’t have a planet-wide magnetic field. Given the planet’s proximity and similarity to Earth, the lack of a protective magnetic field has ignited the curiosity of scientists. Now a scientist has come up with an interesting explanation.  Read more here: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/wate-may-have-killed-mars-magnetic-field.

Infographic: Don’t look now but… You’re surrounded by magnets

Usually you won’t see them but they’re there, inside the devices you use every day. They get you to work and back home, they keep you in touch with friends around the world, and they make your life easier in a thousand different ways. We’re talking about magnets, of course. Ask most people to list […]

Questions about Stabilizing or Calibrating Permanent Magnets? Read our New Whitepaper

Permanent magnets are utilized in a wide range of commercial and industrial applications, many of which require these magnets to function in a highly stable and consistent manner. Variables such as temperature, and demagnetizing fields will impact performance, but these effects can be mitigated through stabilization or calibration. Our new whitepaper, Permanent Magnet Stabilizing and […]
