Stepped Magnets Introduction

Stanford Magnets offers various Stepped Magnets according to requests.
Custom Stepped Magnets typically include both an inner concave (which can also be called a groove) and an outer convex form.

This specific magnet shape provides an excellent connecting solution for many applications. No need for glue or screws and the magnet can be firmly installed in the designated position.

Stepped Magnets Applications

Stepped Magnets are ideal for applications requiring the embedding of magnets with more than average length, such as plastic steel, aluminum alloy window, 3D glass holder, acrylic signage, picture frames, and joinery.

Neodymium Magnets Handling and Storage

NdFeB Magnets are very strong and brittle, requiring appropriate handling and packing to ensure safety and prevent damage.


What are stepped magnets?
Stepped magnets are permanent magnets that feature a tiered or stepped design, which can be customized to fit into particular assemblies or to achieve a desired magnetic field distribution. They are often used in applications requiring a strong magnetic connection with precise alignment or increased mechanical stability.
How do stepped magnets work?
The unique shape of stepped magnets allows them to concentrate magnetic flux more effectively in certain areas or to fit more snugly against non-flat surfaces. This can improve the magnet's holding strength or its interaction with ferromagnetic materials, making the magnet more efficient in its specific application.
What materials are used to make stepped magnets?
Stepped magnets can be made from various magnetic materials, including: Neodymium (NdFeB): Known for its strong magnetic properties and used in applications requiring a compact and powerful magnet. Ferrite (Ceramic): A more cost-effective option suitable for lower strength requirements. Samarium Cobalt (SmCo): Offers high temperature resistance and strong magnetic properties. Alnico: Known for its temperature stability and resistance to corrosion.
What are the advantages of using stepped magnets?
Increased Holding Power: The stepped design can focus the magnetic field, enhancing the magnet's holding strength. Custom Fit: Their unique shape allows for a better fit in specialized applications, improving alignment and connection stability. Versatility: Stepped magnets can be customized to meet the requirements of a wide range of applications, from industrial machinery to consumer electronics.
What applications are suitable for stepped magnets?
Stepped magnets are used in various applications, including: Motors and Generators: Where precise alignment and strong magnetic fields are crucial. Sensors: Where the magnet's shape can enhance the sensor's accuracy or sensitivity. Holding and Clamping Systems: In industrial settings where a strong, stable hold is necessary. Consumer Electronics: Where space is limited, and a custom-fit magnet can improve device functionality.
How do you choose the right stepped magnet for your application?
Consider the following: Magnetic Strength Required: Determine the necessary strength based on the application's requirements, which will help in selecting the material. Operating Environment: Consider factors like temperature, moisture, and exposure to chemicals, which might affect the choice of magnet material and any needed coatings. Physical Constraints: The available space and the specific shape required to fit into the assembly or device.
Can stepped magnets be custom ordered?
Yes, stepped magnets are often custom-made to suit specific applications. Manufacturers can tailor the magnet's material, dimensions, and step configuration to meet unique requirements.
