Permanent magnets

Many technological advances only became possible after the development of extremely powerful permanent magnets in various shapes and sizes. Today, magnetic materials have very different magnetic and mechanical properties, and the four families of permanent magnets can thus be used in a very wide range of applications. 

BLS Magnet has a very large stock of permanent magnet in many shapes and sizes and also offers tailor-made magnets.

Ferrite magnets


Ferrite magnets have a very wide range of possible uses and have an excellent value-for-money value. This type of magnets is highly resistant to corrosion and magnetic properties can be guaranteed for life when used correctly.

Neodymium magnets (NdFeB)


Neodymium magnets, also known as Iron Boron magnets, are made of rare earth elements. Such magnets are currently the most powerful on the market. Their main application is to be used in systems that require high efficiency and space/weight is paramount.

Alnico magnets


Alnico magnets are made from an alloy of aluminum, nickel, and cobalt (abbreviated alnico), and are ideal for high temperatures environments (up to 500° C). These magnets have an extraordinary mechanical strength.

Samarium cobalt magnets


Samarium cobalt magnets are powerful magnets which can withstand high temperatures (up to 250 °C). They are made of an alloy of rare earth, samarium and cobalt. Due to their extreme rigidity, these magnets require diamond tooling if machining is needed.
