Neodymium magnets are a rare earth magnet, and known for their strength of power. When handled improperly, they can pose serious dangers. Often referred to as neo magnet, NIB or NdFEB, neodymium rare earth magnets are permanent magnets composed of an alloy of neodymium, boron and iron.
Of late, this magnet holds the title for being the strongest type of permanent magnet. It also has a metallic appearance. The applications of neodymium are many. They are used in several industrial areas, medicines and health, educational, and as handy tools.
When it comes to magnetic applications, neodymium is used to make magnetic separators, magnetic filters, and magnetic ionizers. It is also used in the security industry to manufacture alarm systems, switches, and security systems.
Even the IT industry benefits from neodymium magnets in making computer hard drives, telephonic applications, television, video applications, and chip detectors. Companies that build generators rely heavily on neodymium to manufacture strong generators. The strength of generators depends on the power of the magnets used.
Manufacturers of oil filters use magnets so that the filters effective separate any iron fillings or other metal chips from the oil. Devices such as metal detectors contain the rare earth magnet.
Machines use them to hold down tarps to cover machinery and cars. You can use them also for making tool belts or for making the doll hold on to its pacifier. Designers for fashion accessories use neodymium magnets for making earrings and jewelry clasps. If you are looking for a magnet to keep name tags in place without having to stitch them on, you can rely on magnets.
Rare earth neodymium is used in the health industry, for alleviating symptoms and relieving pain caused by health issues like arthritis. These permanent magnets have healing abilities and are often called healing magnets.
They are also used in manufacturing Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanning machines. During space flights, NASA uses these rare earth magnets so astronauts can maintain muscle tone.
They are used for experimentation and research purposes. Neodymium magnets are small in size but enormous in its strength, making it convenient to carry anywhere and anytime. Also, because of its small size, toy industries use this magnet to make kid and adult’s toys.
There are many characteristics of neodymium to differentiate it from other magnets. It has a remarkably high resistance to demagnetization thanks to its natural attribute of being the strongest permanent magnet. Unlike the other types of magnet, the rare earth neodymium is affordable. There are two reasons why so many industries use this magnet.
Neodymium magnets require low working temperature for heat applications. If the temperature is set to high degree, they can easily catch fire. Neodymium inspired new applications in areas where magnets were not used.
