Magnets Raising Voices

Magnetic components enable all kinds of innovation! Last month, bioengineers at UCLA developed a device that shows promising potential to give those without a voice the ability to speak. The implement attaches externally to the necks of people who are unable to speak due to various voice disorders, pathological conditions, or surgeries. With the help […]

Women in STEM Magnetism

Throughout history, women have made significant contributions in fields ranging from economics and civil engineering to yes, you guessed it, science. For example, Ada Lovelace wrote what is considered the world’s first computer code. Chemist Katharin Blodgett is credited with creating the world’s first clear glass. And on a hot, sunny day, you can thank […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
