Many of our customers who are new to the world of magnets may have such questions: what’s magnetization and what are the methods of magnetization? In this article, we’ll take a look at magnetization and the methods of magnetization and try to answer the above questions.
Magnetization refers to magnetizing a magnetic substance or increasing the magnetism of a magnet with insufficient magnetism. Generally, the magnetic object to be magnetized is placed in the magnetic field formed by the coil through which the direct current passes.
The magnetization direction can be divided into thickness magnetization, radial magnetization, and so on. When the magnet is heated or impacted, the magnetic pitch direction of the magnetic domains in it will become inconsistent, and the magnetism will be weakened or disappeared. To retain the original properties, magnetization is required.
Methods of Magnetization
1. Constant current magnetization (low-voltage large-capacity capacitor discharge), suitable for magnets with low coercivity, such as ferrite magnets.
2. Pulse magnetization (discharge of high-voltage small-capacity capacitors), suitable for magnets with high coercivity, such as neodymium magnets.
1. Constant Current Magnetizing Machine
Working principle: a constant current of direct current is passed through the coil to make the coil generate a constant magnetic field. It is suitable for magnetizing low-coercivity permanent magnets.
2. Pulse Magnetizing Machine
Working principle: the instantaneous pulsed current is passed through the coil to make the coil generate a short super-strong magnetic field.
It is suitable for high coercivity permanent magnets or complex multi-pole magnetization occasions. It is widely used in permanent magnet material production and application enterprises, suitable for the magnetization of various types of permanent magnets, such as AlNiCo magnets, ferrite magnets, rare earth permanent magnets, etc. It has the characteristics of high efficiency and reliability. The equipment has no special requirements for the power configuration of the work site, and it is convenient and flexible to use.
