Alnico Magnets

Guitar Pick UpsWind Turbine EquipmentPipeline Inspection EquipmentIndustrial Automation EquipmentMilitary Radar Equipment

Alnico magnets are relatively high in magnetic strength, offer excellent temperature stability and can be used in temperatures up to 1000°F (500°C), so they are ideal for many types of industrial manufacturing applications. In addition, Alnico magnets are manufactured through a casting or sintering process, so they can be made into complex shapes, not possible to achieve with other magnet materials. They are routinely used in the oil and gas, medical, aerospace military and defense, industrial automation, automotive, and manufacturing industry.
