Find the right magnet for your motor application

Electric motors rely on principles of magnetism in order to operate. Most often, copper windings are powered by an electric current, generating a magnetic field. This interacts with a separate magnetic field – often created by an array of permanent magnets.  Many of the newest, most powerful and most efficient electric motors use permanent magnets in their design. Permanent magnet motors (PM motors) have some key advantages over induction motors:

  • More consistent performance
  • Higher efficiency – less energy loss
  • Small and lightweight
  • High power, high torque

Brushless DC Motors

Brushless DC motors are very common motors that utilize permanent magnets, requiring no power source for the rotor field.

Stepper Motors

Stepper Motors are brushless DC electric motors that divide rotation into a number of steps. The position of the motor can then be commanded to move and hold at any position without the use of a position sensor. Many stepper motors use a permanent magnet rotors paired with an electromagnetic stator.

They are often used in motion control positioning system applications like linear actuators, valve and fluid control equipment, printers and scanners, machining equipment, lighting and optics, and much more.
