Neodymium magnetic toys

Magnets have always fascinated us right from our childhood. Nowadays there are many astounding varieties of magnets around us. A neodymium magnet is one of them. You might ask what is so special about a neodymium magnet. Well, the following facets mentioned below will tell you more regarding a neodymium magnet.

What is a neodymium magnet?

A neodymium magnet happens to be one of the most commonly used magnets today. It is actually a rare type of magnet made of boron, iron and an alloy of neodymium. This is how it has the Nd2Fe14B tetragonal crystalline structure. General Motors and Sumitomo Special Metals developed neodymium magnets in 1982 and until date, it is considered as one of the strongest type of magnets we have.

The strength and special properties of a neodymium magnet makes it an essential requisite in many modern day tools such as magnetic fasteners, the motors found in cordless tools and hard disk drives. The amazing physical properties give them a unique shape when arranged together in large numbers.    

One of the noteworthy properties of a neodymium magnet is its resistance to get demagnetized. You can see that there are two basic type of methods through which neodymium magnets are manufactured. One is the bonded magnetic process and the other one is the sintered magnetic process. Given below are some of the common applications for which neodymium magnets are used.

  • Computer hard disks
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Cordless tools
  • Drive motors for hybrid vehicles
  • Electric generators for wind turbines
  • Neodymium magnetic toys
