Uses for our samarium cobalt disc magnets:
Some people, like industrial designers, manufacturers, tradespeople, tinkerers and craftspeople make things. They sink or swim depending on how good their products are. How well their products perform in the marketplace is measured by two key factors. Ease of manufacture and ease of use.
For these reasons professional makers turn to professional fixers to fasten their products and devices. Magnets as fixers and fasteners express the characteristics valued in the emerging Digital Age. Magnets are intuitive. They allow designers and makers to determine the strength of a join or bond by choosing a magnet of that pull force.
This choice in turn determines the intuitive release pressure or quit the grip function to allow for servicing or cleaning of the device. This protocol eases the cost of production and enhances the ease of use and longevity of the item.
The modern world loves a magnet’s intuitive power and renewability of function. However it is compatibility with so many materials that has secured magnetic bond as the preferred fastening method of the future. Compatibility with traditional materials, but compatibility also with lightweight masonry, compressed fibres and foam but especially plastics. Especially plastics.
Old time fasteners like screws, bolts, springs and glues are not going to make the journey to the new world, the future. Most of the materials they were designed to join together are not going to make it either. We have entered the Time of Plastics. The Time of Plastics have already decreed their preferred fastening method.
