Alnico Magnets are the weakest of permanent magnets however they have excellent temperature stability and very good non-corrosiveness. Their mechanical strength is greater than either Neodymium or Ferrite.
Alnico magnets properties:
- Produced by the casting or powder metallurgical techniques
- Chemical composition: Al-Ni-Fe-Co
- Very hard and brittle
- Poor resistance to demagnetization
- Produce good flux density at a reasonable cost
- Excellent stability over a wide temperature range

Cylinder magnets made from Alnico are used for seals, sensors and coin collection machines and most famously, in guitar pickups.
The Alnico pot magnets have a threaded hole and are suited to general purpose holding applications.
Shallow pot magnets manufactured in Alnico are mostly used for jigs and fixtures, holding and gripping applications where there are height restrictions.
Alnico block magnets, also called bar magnets, are often used in educational facilities from primary school through to post-graduate work in a wide range of experimental applications.
Horseshoe Magnets, made of Alnico, are very popular with schools and science departments and are used to demonstrate magnetic fields and properties.
