Magnets are an important component of many of the modern appliances. They have a range of applications in everyday lives, starting with simple objects like toys, clocks and fridge magnets to complex machines like computers, washing machines and medical equipment.
Magnets are available in a wide array of shapes and sizes. Each of the different magnets in Brisbane possesses their own set of features and is used in different applications depending upon their characteristics. The main principle of classification of magnets is their magnetic strength and coercivity. The commonly available shapes of magnets are bar magnet, horseshoe magnet, sphere magnet, pot thread magnet, rod magnet, ring magnet, disc magnet, electromagnets and flexible magnets. Each of these magnets is available in different materials such as ferrite magnets, neodymium magnets, Samarium Cobalt magnets and Alnico magnets.
Neodymium magnets in Brisbane are also calledas neo magnets or NIB. These magnets are permanent magnets which are popular for their powerful magnetic field. They are widely used in industrial applications due to their strong resistance to demagnetization. Neo magnets are used in metal separation, automotive manufacturing and medical devices. They are also used in simple household devices such as fridge magnets, jewellery clasps, toys and microwave devices.
Ferrite magnets in Brisbane are also known as Ceramic magnets. These are the most affordable and popular magnets. These ceramic magnets are highly resistant to heat and corrosion and have a variety of applications. Ferrite magnets are available in two forms, soft ferrites and hard ferrites. Soft ferrites are made up of nickel, zinc and manganese and have low coercivity. Hard ferrites are made of iron oxide, barium and strontium carbonate and are highly resistant to demagnetization. Ferrite magnets are used in a wide range of industrial applications and in the manufacture of loud speakers, microwave equipment and aeroplanes.
Samarium cobalt magnets
Samarium cobalt magnets are one of the rare earth magnets which are resistant to corrosion and heat pressure. These strong permanent magnets are generally used in applications which require stable magnetic performance at high temperatures. They are also used in marine and medical purposes. The magnets are brittle and should be used with utmost care.
Alnico magnets in Brisbane are manufactured from an alloy consisting of samarium, cobalt and iron. These magnets are one of the strongest magnets on earth and are ferromagnetic. Alnico magnets are used to make permanent magnets and other industrial applications.
