Neodymium Magnets

US $200.00



Neo magnets were developed by Hitachi in 1980’s. They are also called Neodymium Boron Iron magnets or NdFeB magnets. They are produced by sintering ~4µm size fine powders.  They can be made only in simple blocks, ring or arc shapes. They are made of ~66% Fe, 30% Neo, 1% B,0.7% Nb, 0.3% Al.  7 to 12% dysprosium is added to improve high temperature performance, but it increases their cost.  Neo magnets have poorer thermal stability than SmCo magnets (~0.1%/C). So currently most engineers prefer to use them below 150C. It can corrode easily, so needs coatings. Their energy product ranges 28 to 54 MGOe. Their residual flux density ranges 1 to 1.45T. Their maximum service temperature ranges 80 to 250C.
