magnets in cold temperatures

What Happens When Magnets Get Cold?

Cold weather is great for sipping cocoa by the fire, watching college football, and making snow angels. But how do cold temps affect magnets? Luckily, most magnets actually become stronger and more resistant to demagnetization in cold weather. Strength: In most cases, cold temperatures increase the strength of a magnet’s magnetic field. This is because the atoms in the magnet move slower […]

Permanent Magnets in EVs

Permanent magnets play a critical role in electric vehicles (EVs). They are used in the electric motors that power the wheels, as well as in other components such as the power steering and air conditioning system. Permanent magnets create a strong magnetic field that does not require electricity to maintain. This makes them ideal for […]

New Lower Cost Neodymium Magnet Option

Background You may have heard there’s a new, lower-cost Neodymium Iron Boron magnet option. This new option replaces some of the Neodymium with Cerium, which helps to reduce the cost of the magnet. A Bit of Neodymium History… Er, Science… Nope, History The popular Neodymium magnets are made up of a variety of materials, mostly […]

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 […]

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 […]
