Here’s a great example of an automotive related linear motor application. The magnet in this case is a multi-pole injection molded magnet made from a hybrid neodymium and ferrite blend. The magnet is injection molded directly to a zinc plated steel hub – no gluing or assembly required. The hub is knurled to promote the best possible bond of the magnet to the hub. The magnet is then magnetized with multiple poles, powering the hub along a threaded shaft.
