Neodymium magnets in the industry
Neodym magnets are especially widely used in the automotive industry and in the manufacture of various household appliances and electric motors. At the same time, such super magnets are indispensable in the production of computers, as they represent one of the key elements of hard drives. The material offers a strength which is about ten times greater than that of conventional ceramic magnets. Without them, it would be difficult to imagine the rapid development of computer equipment (or electronic devices in general) as we have witnessed in recent years.
The biggest disadvantage of neodymium magnets, however, is their fragility, but this problem can be very successfully overcome with proper corrosion protection. There are many different types of protection available, such as electroplating, epoxy coating, and combination protection. Quality corrosion protection further enhances the usefulness of neodymium magnets, as fragility is no longer a problem – thus enhancing the great advantages of neodymium materials, particularly their incredible strength.
