Custom Molded Magnets

Custom Molded Magnets

One of the more important developments in magnetic materials is polymer bonded magnets. This has opened a new world of application opportunities. The processing temperatures employed to blend and mold the material mixture is low enough to allow many different magnet powders to be used alone or in combination in the polymer binder to achieve an unprecedented range of properties.

Another benefit of the injection molding process is that magnet material can be directly molded into, onto, or against other assembly components, eliminating subsequent assembly steps. This is called insert injection molding.

Injection molded magnets can be of very simple shapes or very complex. All or only part of the device may be magnetized. It is sometimes cost advantageous to make an entire part out of the magnet material and just magnetize the portion requiring magnetic output
