Ferrite Magnets Production Flow Diagram

Production Flow Diagram for Ferrite Magnets

This flow chart depicts a simplified outline of the process involved in the manufacture of Ferrite magnets. Ferrite magnets were first introduced in the 1950s and were a revolution at the time. Our website has been carefully built to include as much information and clarity for our customers as possible. We do our best to provide certainty and transparency in regards to our products and processes.

The AMF Magnetic brand has been in operation since the 1980s and over this time we have built a range and depth of products that are second to none. As with many retail operators we have adapted our business to be an ecommerce store. This has allowed us to continue to provide the range of products and the quality of customer service that would not have been possible had we stayed a bricks and mortar operator. Although we know it can be challenging to purchase magnets online, we have done our best to respond to customer feedback, creating a practical and enjoyable purchasing process.

In our many years of operation we have developed close working relationships with the best quality magnet producers. These long standing relationships have allowed us to respond quickly to market needs. The mutual trust built over time has allowed us to raise concerns about quality or cost when required. We are able to ensure we provide our customers with superior quality, strong magnets at competitive prices. AMF is proudly Australia’s largest magnet retailer for good reason.

Ferrite magnets are produced through a process known overall as sintering however there are a number of steps involved. Ferrite magnets consist of a composite of materials, these are iron oxide and barium carbonate or strontium carbonate. One of the key aspects of the production process is “pressing in the magnetic field” or what is also known as creating remanence. Magnets are effectively a storage device for a magnetic field. The magnet stores the remanence of the magnetic field that is ‘pressed into it’ in the manufacturing process.
