Disc Magnets are one of the most popular selling shapes in the magnet industry. Each day we field questions about the material grade, coatings, and custom sizes of disc magnets. While we don’t always know about the end application due to IP and confidentiality until a product launches, we do understand that disc magnets can be the perfect fit.
Customer Feedback About Disc Magnets
Over the years we have consulted our customers about the “best magnet for their application”, and many times the shape of the magnet is a disc, ring, cylinder or tube magnet. These round magnets have the ability to fit into, and onto, areas that other shapes can’t. They can fit precisely into pre-drilled holes, sit nicely on steel rings, and can go into non-magnetic tubes easily.
Disc Magnet Applications
Some of the main applications and industries where you will find disc, cylinder, ring and tube magnets are as medical magnets, sensor magnets, motor magnets, speaker magnets, and holding magnets. Each application requires the magnetic field generated by round magnets whether magnetized axially (through the thickness), or diametrically (across the diameter).
We would like to know how you use round magnets. Post your information on this blog so our wide spread customers in virtually every industry can gain insight and ideas from your experience. From medical applications to motors, and magic to sensors, we look forward to hearing about your experience and allowing our customers to consider these magnets in their designs.
