Injection Molded Magnets

Injection Molded Magnets, Injection Molded Ferrite magnets, Injection Molded NdFeB magnets, Injection Molding Permanent Magnets China Supplier

Introduction

Injection molded magnets are available using ferrite, neodymium-iron-boron, SmCo and SmFeN, offering thus a wide range of magnetic properties. Binder types include Nylon 6, Nylon 12 and PPS. The different combinations of binders and magnetic alloys offer a wide range of application temperatures from -40°C up to 160°C.

The Injection molding process is particularly well suited to molding complex shapes and thin walled parts. This opens entirely new possibilities in design of magnets and magnetic systems, making thin rings, mechanical non-magnetized details etc. possible. More over, the magnet can be molded over a metallic or polymer component (insert molding) or molded over with a normal plastic, thus manufacturing an entire assembly in one or two process steps.

Injection Molded Ferrite/NDFEB magnets offer design engineers near limitless shape and magnetization possibilities. Its high tensile strength allows injection-molded components to withstand high rotational forces, and it offers both excellent chemical and impact resistance.

Isotropic grades can be magnetized in any direction (axial, radial or multipolar). Anisotropic grades are magnetically oriented in a preferred direction during the molding process and offer higher energy products.

Our experts have had great success with new hybrids of Neodymium Iron Boron and Ferrite magnets, offering our customers an even broader range of choices. We offer complete engineering assistance, prototyping services, fabrication and inventory stocking.

Manufacturing process

Permanent magnet powder and polymer are first kneaded together to form a compound, which then can be used for injection molding. Injection molding of permanent magnets is basically identical with injection molding of normal plastics. The only difference is that for production of anisotropic magnets a magnetic field is needed in the molding tool. After molding the magnets normally do not need any further operations, except magnetising, before use. In certain cases magnets can be magnetized in the molding tool and separate magnetizing is thus not needed.

Depending on the orientation of the magnet, there are differences in the molding process:

1. Isotropic magnets (no magnetic field in the tool): NdFeB, ferrite

2. Anisotropic (axial, diametral, radial) by electromagnet(s) in the tool: Ferrite, NdFeB, SmCo, SmFeN

3. Polar anisotropy, generated by permanent magnets in the tool: Ferrite

Materials

SmFeN Rare Earth (plastic bonded)
SmCo Rare Earth (plastic bonded)
Hard Ferrite (plastic bonded)
NdFeB Rare Earth (plastic bonded)

Magnetic properties

Properties of the injection molded magnets depend on the magnetic material and binder used. Properties given in the table 1 and 2 are typical for each grade at the room temperature. The actual properties in a finished magnet may differ from the material properties due to magnet geometry, magnetizing etc. Usually the qeometry of an injection molded magnet do not allow control of the properties by standard methods, like BH-curve tracker. Therefore, it’s important to agree on QA methods.

More information, including demagnetisation curves in various temperatures and physical properties, for each grade can be found in the datasheets (possibility to download). The same information is available in numerical form for magnetic modelling (request for info – e-mail).
