Horizon supply Neodymium magnets in square and rectangular block shaped. Usually we call them magnetic blocks, Neodymium bar magnets or rectangular Neodymium magnets. The block magnets are always used in industrial markets and small blocks may be used as craft magnets
Neodymium magnets known as NdFeB, Neodymium-Iron-Boron, Neo, NIB or Rare Earth Neodymium magnets, are the third generation of rare earth permanent magnets. They offer the highest energy product of any material today and are available in a very wide range of shapes, sizes and grades. These qualities have made NdFeB magnets preferable over the commonly used larger and less powerful Ferrite magnets.
Although the Curie temperature for NdFeB materials is 310-370ºC, some irreversible loss of output may be expected at even moderate temperatures. NdFeB magnets also have a moderately high reversible temperature coefficient of Br which reduces total magnetic output as temperature rises. Selection of NdFeB instead of SmCo, for example, is a function of the maximum temperature of the application, required magnetic output at typical use temperature and total cost of the system.
However, they are sensitive to oxidization and can develop corrosion, so they require surface protection like phosphate, passivation, Ni, NiCuNi, Zn, Epoxy, NiCuNi+Sn or others.

Minimum Size: L1 x W1 x T0.4mm
Orientation Direction Size: Lower than 80mm
Tolerance: Generally +/-0.1mm, Particularly +/-0.03mm
Generally the finished block of small dimension is sliced from the big block directly. If the dimension of one or two directions is large, for example >60mm, it should need grinding and EDM cutting, due to the limits of the slicing machine. If all three directions are too large, only grinding is enough. Prior to coating, the small block needs vibration tumbling and the big block needs manual chamfering.
Electric motors, wind turbines, pump couplings, chemical pumps, sensors, magnetic sputtering cathodes, magnetic assemblies, etc.
Main Test Items Prior to Delivery:
In order to ensure NdFeB magnets to meet requirements, we main test following items: size, weight loss, magnetic properties, flux, flux density, angle deviation, magnetic loss, appearance, coating thickness, corrosion resistance, etc.
