A Comprehensive List of Ferromagnetic Materials

A Comprehensive List of Ferromagnetic Materials

Metals and magnetism go hand in hand. Magnetism, whether it’s strong or weak, is a characteristic of metal along with conductivity, malleability, and ductility. But just as metals can be ductile but not malleable, or malleable but not ductile, magnetism isn’t a condition to be taken for granted.

Temporary Vs. Permanent Magnets: The Difference

Temporary Vs. Permanent Magnets: The Difference

Magnetism matters. From navigating the seas by compass to navigating your neighborhood by smartphone, none of it would be possible without harnessing magnetic fields. Without getting too abstract, magnetism matters when it comes to identifying and moving metal at a scrapyard. But with the power it takes for a magnet on a crane to lift a hunk of steel, how does that all that magnetic energy not cause the world to go haywire? The answer lies in the difference between temporary and permanent magnets. Let’s take a closer look.

Different Types of Magnet Generator Systems

Different Types of Magnet Generator Systems

Companies that use magnets in their day-to-day operations know just how useful they really are. Without magnets, the efficiency and productivity of companies would decrease, thus plummeting their revenue. What many companies forget about, however, is how their magnets are being powered. The majority of modern magnets are electric because they use energy efficiently, they’re customizable, and versatile. That said, you need to power the magnet somehow, right? The engine often powers magnets that attach directly to heavy machinery such as a crane or excavator; though not always. What’s even more common is separate magnet generators.
