How Do You Use Disc Magnets?
September 01, 2016
Disc Magnets are one of our most popular selling items, and each day we field questions about the material grade, coatings, and custom sizes of disc magnets, ring magnets, cylinder magnets, and tube magnets. However, we don’t always know about the application due to the status of the application and the need for designers and developers to maintain confidentiality until a product launches.
Over the years we have consulted our customers about the “best magnet for their application”, and many times the shape of the magnet is a disc, ring, cylinder or tube magnet. These round magnets have the ability to fit into, and onto, areas that other shapes can’t. They can fit precisely into pre-drilled holes, sit nicely on steel rings, and can go into non-magnetic tubes easily.
Some of the main applications where you will find disc, cylinder, ring and tube magnets are in medical, sensors, motors, speakers, and holding applications. Each application requires the magnetic field generated by a round magnet whether magnetized axially (through the thickness), or diametrically (across the diameter).
We would like to know how you use round magnets. Post your information on this blog so our wide spread customers in virtually every industry can gain insight and ideas from your experience. From medical applications to motors, and magic to sensors, we look forward to hearing about your experience and allowing our customers to consider these magnets in their designs.
