Length/Width 1mm - 10mm

There are just under 50 magnets in this category and they all have a length or width dimension of between 1mm and 10mm. Certainly these are small magnets however you may be astounded by the magnetic power they can produce. This is particularly the case for Neodymium magnets which make up a large proportion of the magnets in this category.

Length/Width 1mm - 10mm

Rare Earth magnets are more than 10 times more powerful than Ferrite magnets, which are the next most powerful magnet. It is largely due to this disparity that we see Neodymium maintaining the lion’s share of magnet sales. They have replaced Ferrites and other types of permanent magnets in most applications. The exception to this being high temperature applications. Neodymium magnets have a maximum operating temperature of 80oC. Neodymium magnets are also more susceptible to corrosion and require particular coatings when used in marine applications.

Uses for small magnets

Magnets have come a long way since the lodestone used by ancient voyagers to navigate to lands anew. Small magnets are incorporated into just about every electrical object in the home or office. From hard drives to stereos, tiny magnets allow many of these devices to run more efficiently. Mini magnets are also a common mechanical device in many household products. Magnetic clasps do everything from keeping our laptops closed to ensuring rechargeable items align correctly in their charging dock. Soft closing drawers and cabinets rely on magnets and these have become almost as common as the humble fridge magnet.

Mysterious magnets

Magnets are mysterious and seemingly magical items. In fact many magic tricks have been developed using tiny magnets. There are many mysteries yet to be uncovered by scientists, chief among these are some of the nuanced ways magnets affect animals and people.
There have been a number of studies conducted that indicate there is a link between magnetic fields and bee communication patterns. Likewise animal behaviors such as migration have been linked to the magnetic field of the earth.

Block magnets

Block magnets feature strongly in this size range. Rectangular magnets of this size are commonly Neodymium. This is because they are able to achieve a more powerful hold than a Ferrite magnet of the same size.
Highly technical and sensitive measuring equipment including switches, sensors and gauges use tiny Rare Earth block magnets. Magnets of this scale often play an integral part in the operation of processing equipment monitoring devices. Their power is self-sufficient and permanent making them a reliable and consistent component. Configured within an assembly, they can be fine tuned to react to very precise magnetic influences such as electrical signals and the proximity of ferrous materials.
