Our customer was producing air core gauges using an older process using ceramic magnets. The magnet was zinc die cast onto a small, precision shaft. This presented several problems. The ceramic magnets often cracked and require precision grinding to fit into the cavity of the die cast machine to be assembled, which was expensive. Even
Most magnet assemblies are made the old fashioned way – by gluing the magnet(s) to a backing plate, shaft, hub, housing, etc. This adds an extra step to the process and can potentially lead to defects and quality issues. EA Magnetics can help you save time and money by eliminating these issues. Here’s a great
A well-known sensor manufacturer wanted to replace an existing magnet they were getting in China with one produced domestically. EAM worked with the customer to design a larger injection molded magnet that can snap in a case and actuate a TMR sensor used in security applications. The customer was able to re-shore this part easily
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
Designed to sense exact position in steering applications. Injection molded neodymium magnet and aluminum bushing over-molded with polypropylene casing. Magnetized radially with 4 poles. Multi-step molding process produces one cohesive piece, eliminating the need for additional assembly. Have a specific magnet specification for your project? Contact EAM today for your magnet needs.
Technology that other vendors couldn’t supply was developed by EAM. Here’s what we did to provide the solution… When a company that designs control systems for military and space program applications needed a magnetic system to operate a new precision control unit, they wanted the best. They found it in EA Magnetics. The Problem: Create a
