Alnico magnets are housed in many sensors like gauges and meters to measure temperature and pressure, as well as volume flows of liquids, powders, grains and minerals. Alnico magnets offer an intuitive or graduated pull and push force over nearby components.This nuanced magnetic agency enables industrial designers to fabricate sensors of all types that are sensitive, accurate and durable. These sensors are vital for the safe and sustainable monitoring of valuable goods and equipment sometimes operating at very high temperatures.
Alnico magnets have also played a key role in the human love of broadcast or recorded sound. Employed in pick-ups on many instruments in order to modify and amplify sound, alnico magnets and other types of custom magnets bulk are housed in speakers and other audio equipment to improve signal (good noise) to noise (bad noise) ratios.The arrival in the 1930â€™s of magnetic tape made possible for the first time pre-recording of performing artists for broadcast over the airwaves that were indistinguishable from live broadcasts of the same artists. The phenomena of the recording artist, and the mass production of music and affordable devices to reproduce the (live sounding) performances had arrived. Bing Crosby a popular American singer of the time, who personally invested in the new technology, was the first of this new type of artist, the recording artist.
Used commonly in for sensing purposes. Popular with specialist engineers. Used when high temperature resistance is necessary.
Alnico rod magnets can have very strong flux output and are stable at high temperatures.
AOMAG carry a wide range of alnico rod magnets in stock, not all of which are shown on this website. Alnico magnets are part of the permanent magnet family, and relatively high in magnetic strength. They offer excellent temperature stability & can be used at temperatures up to 1000â°F (500â°C).
Because of their temperature stability and relatively high magnetic strength, they are commonly used for industrial applications such as rotating machinery, meters, instruments, sensing devices holding applications and more.
Alnico magnets are manufactured through either a casting or sintering process, so they can be made into complex shapes such as horseshoes, which is not possible to do with some of the other magnet materials.
