Methods of Magnetization

The magnetization pattern selected is an important part of the design of the magnet. The successful magnet circuit design always must consider the magnetic pattern. The magnetization patterns are typical of the three basic options available with Plastalloy™.

  • conventional, one pole on each side
  • two poles on each side
  • multiple poles on each side
  • custom magnitization patterns

The Electrodyne Company specializes in the manufacture of custom encoder and speed sensing magnets. These economical magnets are available with or without pressure sensitive adhesive and are perfect for use with hall effect and other common magnetically actuated switches. The ETC Magnetizer (U.S. Patent No. 5,424,703) offers quick and easy magnetization of ferrite materials. You will realize pull strength competitive with strengths obtained with impulse type magnetizers that can cost thousands more.

Pressure Sensitive Adhesives

As an option, Electrodyne is able to apply various pressure sensitive adhesives to its line of flexible magnet materials.

Adhesives from 3M Company and FLEXcon Company, Inc. are available in a variety of formulations to cover applications ranging from general purpose to automotive.

Adhesives come in the form of a thin film with a paper release liner and can be applied to our magnet material in the form of strips, rolls and die cut shapes.

Engineering, technical assistance and testing services are also available for the most demanding of applications.
