Alnico Cylinder Magnets
Cylinder Magnets made from Alnico are used for seals, sensors and coin collection machines and most famously, in guitar pickups. Amplifiers, actuators and motor applications have also used Alnico magnets due to their impressive flux density. Alnico Magnets are the weakest of permanent magnets, however they have excellent temperature stability and very good resistance to corrosion. Their mechanical strength is greater than either Neodymium or Ferrite magnets because Alnico magnets are both hard and brittle.
