29.Surged Demand for Magnetic Materials Driving Its Global Market
According to a recent report released by GIA (Global Industry Analysts, Inc.), the global magnetic market is to reach 34,000,000,000 US Dollars by the year 2018, supposed to be driven by the strong demand of Asian countries, especially China, and stimulat

28.Magnetic Anisotropy And Anisotropic Materials
Most magnetic materials can be magnetized to saturation along the same direction (magnetization direction). The anisotropic magnets can generate stronger magnetic field than the isotropic ones.

27.Measuring Permanent Magnets' Properties with Vibrating Sample Magnetometer
Vibrating Sample Magnetometers (VSMs) are the most commonly employed tool for properties measurement of permanent magnet materials. They can be applied to magnet powder, thin films, anisotropic materials, magnetic recording materials, single crystals and

26.Two basic types of Rare Earth magnets
According to their materials, rare earth magnets can be classified into two basic types: Neodymium Iron Boron rare earth magnets and Samarium Cobalt rare earth magnets.

25.Permanent Magnet Stability
The ability of a permanent magnet to support an external magnetic field results from small magnetic domains "locked" in position by crystal anisotropy within the magnet material.

24.Using Samarium Cobalt Magnets
Samarium Cobalt magnets do not need any coatings or platings after processing.

23.Processing Technique of Samarium Cobalt
The bonded samarium cobalt materials are typically anisotropic and manufactured by using "binders" such as epoxy resins to hold the powder in place, rather than "sintering" the alloy

22.Different Samarium Cobalt magnets Series
For samarium cobalt magnets Series 1-5 which is shortened as SmCo5, they have one atom of rare earth Samarium and five atoms of Cobalt

21.Manufacturing Methods about Neodymium Magnets
Sintered Neodymium Iron Boron Magnets:The sintered Neodymium Iron Boron magnet is produced by the OPS (orient-press-sinter) method.

20.Choose Neodymium Iron Boron magnets or not?
Over the last 10 years, Neodymium Iron Boron magnets have become extremely popular in almost all high technology applications that require high performance magnets.

19.General Information about Alnico Magnets
Excellent temperature stability, high residual induction, and relatively high energies characterize Alnico materials, composed primarily of alloys of Aluminum, Nickel, and Cobalt.

18.General Information about Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) Magnets
Neodymium Iron Boron magnets are a type of rare earth alloy that typically has two atoms of Neodymium (Nd), 14 atoms of Iron (Fe), and one atom of Boron (B) as its primary elements, hence their chemical composition Nd2Fe14B, which is commonly abbreviated

17.Manufacturing Methods about Alnico Magnets
Alnico magnets are manufactured through either casting or sintering processes.

16.Magnetic materials
The term magnet is typically reserved for objects that produce their own persistent magnetic field even in the absence of an applied magnetic field.

14.The Production of NdFeB Magnets
The NdFeB magnets are manufactured with the alloy of Neodymium-Iron-Boron and small amount of added ingredients such as Dysprosium and Praseodymium, which can help increasing the corrosion resistance of the products.
