Soft Magnetic Materials

Soft magnetic materials are essential components in many devices and are indispensable in modern electrical engineering and electronics.
In recent years there has been significant progress made in the field of soft magnetic materials. Amorphous and nano-crystalline metals represent an expansion and enhancement of the range of soft magnetic alloys. Continue reading

Hard Magnetic alloys: Part One

The process and material selection for permanent magnetization of magnetically hard materials has progressed over the years. Magnets steels, which are now largely obsolete, have been replaced in the most part by ternary alloys of iron, cobalt, and molybdenum, or tungsten.
According to international classification it is possible to see a break down on the hard magnetic materials according to the three main categories.

Nanoperm Alloys

Although a relatively recent discovery, nanocrystalline materials are a well studied group of materials which have some specific magnetic applications whilst exhibiting some useful property characteristics also.
Due to a very fine distribution of crystalline grains within the amorphous matrix nanocrystalline alloys display excellent soft magnetic properties.
