Working with Neodymium Magnets
Yes, magnets can be engraved with a laser. Laser engraving is a process in which a laser beam is used to etch a design, such as a logo, onto the surface of a magnet. The laser beam is directed onto the surface of the magnet, and the heat from the laser causes the top layer of coating to vaporize, creating a precise and detailed design. Magnets can be made from a wide range of materials, including metals, ceramics, and composite materials. Some types of magnets, such as those made from ferrite or alnico, are more suitable for laser engraving than others due...
Self-adhesive magnets enable you to attach the magnet to a non-magnetic surface, such as aluminum, wood, plastic, ceramic, rubber, paper, and other non-ferrous materials. We have both block and disc shaped self adhesive magnets available.Normally, these magnets come in packs with half self-adhesive on the north side, and half with the self adhesive on the south side. This enables them to attract if needed to form a closure or fastener. Our adhesive magnets are made with a foam based acrylic adhesive, which is also available separately as double-sided self-adhesive stickers. This high-performance adhesive delivers excellent shear strength to resist slippage and edge-lifting. Simply peel the paper off...
Steel discs (often called strike plates) offer added flexibility when working with magnets. They can be used in place of a magnet in some applications because they make an ideal target for other magnets to attract to and attach with. This can dramatically lower your production or project expenses as steel discs cost significantly less than magnets.Due to their ultra thin profile, these blank steel discs can be used to create a variety of magnetic catches, latches, packaging and box closure mechanisms – again, without the cost of an additional magnet. As a result, these discs are ideal for a...
Magnetic fields cannot be blocked, only redirected. The materials that will redirect magnetic fields are materials that are ferromagnetic (attracted to magnets), such as iron, steel (which contains iron), cobalt, and nickel. Iron: Iron is a ferromagnetic material, which means it is strongly attracted to magnets and can be used to block a magnetic field. Steel: Steel is also ferromagnetic and can be used to block a magnetic field. Mu-metal: Mu-metal is an alloy that is made up of several ferromagnetic materials, including nickel, iron, and cobalt. It is highly effective at shielding magnetic fields. Other Metals: Other metals, such...
Direct soldering or welding to neodymium magnets is generally not advised since the high temperatures involved in these techniques may harm the magnets. Neodymium magnets are prone to corrosion and degeneration when exposed to high temperatures since they are made of an alloy of neodymium, iron, and boron. It is advised to utilize a low-temperature bonding technique, like an adhesive, or a mechanical connection technique, like screws or bolts, if you need to fasten something to a neodymium magnet.
These magnets are so strong that it is difficult to separate them without using some kind of prying tool, my fingers alone are too weak to do it. They will do the job I purchased them for very well.
The magnets I received were shipped quickly and securely, and I had no issues with delivery. They were packed well and in good shape when I received them. I noticed no defect with the magnets and I I was able to use them exactly as I intended on back of a piece of jatoba for a magnetic knife strip. I routed a track to 1/8” and glued and epoxied the magnets in place. The magnets provide sufficient pull strength to hold knives without being too energetic about grabbing them from the hand. These met my need precisely and I would purchase again if I decide to make more of these magnetic knife holders.
I used the magnets on a wooden toy box for my grandson. Easy to install and the perfect strength. I will be buying different sizes for other projects.
Ordered these magnets for a project that I was working on. Received as stated & described, the magnets are what I was looking for. Will order from them again.
Used this for a hobby project I’m working on and the magnets held my project together very well. The finish on them were uniform and packaged them very well. They were shipped and received very timely and will be re-ordering more.
Good customer service, great price & quick to ship
I was hoping to find a strong, low profile magnet to use on my project - which is a restoration of a WWII Army Footlocker. I wanted to attach some old photos and postcards to the underside of the lid, but without using any permanent adhesives which may have affected my paint job. These worked perfectly!
Just what I needed and at the right price.....
Will purchase more when needed.
Have used before & reordered magnets for customized windows alarm contacts. Work fantastic & slim profile allowing no issues opening & closing windows.
me use these to stop 1/24 scale drag racing slot cars !!
1/2 x 1/8 Inch Strong Neodymium Rare Earth Disc Magnets N52 (24 Pack)
Magnetic knife board, that worked perfectly.
