Introduction to Basic Composition and Microstructure of Sintered NdFeB Magnet

Introduction to Basic Composition and Microstructure of Sintered NdFeB Magnet Sintered neodymium iron boron (NdFeB) magnet or neodymium (Nd) magnet, as its name implies, contains essential rare earth Nd element. Nd atoms, coupling with ferromagnetic element iron (Fe) atoms, help the magnet obtain high remanence (Br) and maximum energy product ((BH)max), which makes it extraordinary compared with other permanent magnets. In commercial sintered NdFeB magnet, Nd element is usually partially substituted by other rare earth elements including praseodymium (Pr), dysprosium… Read More

What is the Strongest Commercial Permanent Magnet in the World?

What is the Strongest Commercial Permanent Magnet in the World? Researchers and engineers have never stopped their steps to discover and develop novel permanent magnets since 1910s, and several types of permanent magnets had been commercialized and they have been widely used in motion, energy, electronics, medical and other high technologies in our daily life. However, little breakthrough has been taken in the past 18 years of the 21st century. In the current market, almost all types of commercial permanent… Read More

What is the Difference between N35 and N52 Magnets?

What is the Difference between N35 and N52 Magnets? What are N35 and N52 magnets? Seen from their grade strings, both of them are sintered neodymium iron boron (NdFeB) magnets. These two magnets have the same intrinsic coercivity Hcj level higher than 12 kOe (in CGS unit) or 955 kA/m (in SI unit). It is also obviously seen that their maximum energy product (BH)max are around 35 and 52 MGOe, respectively. This huge difference means that the N52 magnets have… Read More

How to Understand the Grade of Sintered NdFeB Magnet?

How to Understand the Grade of Sintered NdFeB Magnet? Generally, the grades of sintered neodymium iron boron (NdFeB) magnets are strings containing three parts, i.e. “N” + “number” + “letter”. The left part “N” is the initial letter of neodymium, meaning it is sintered NdFeB magnet. So it is constant for all the grades. The middle part “number” represents value of maximum energy product (BH)max (in CGS unit). The value varies from 28 to 52. The right part “letter” reflects… Read More
