Neodymium Rod & Cylinder Rare-Earth Magnets

Neodymium rod magnets are strong, versatile rare-earth magnets that are cylindrical in shape, where the magnetic length is equal to or larger than the diameter. They are built for applications where high-magnetic strength is required in compact spaces and can be recessed into drilled holes for heavy-duty holding or sensing purposes. NdFeB rod and cylinder magnets are a multi-purpose solution for industrial, technical, commercial and consumer use.

Neodymium (also known as “Neo”, “NdFeB” or “NIB”) magnets are made from an alloy of neodymium, iron and boron, they are the most powerful magnets commercially available today with magnetic properties that far exceed other permanent magnet materials.

Neodymium Rod & Cylinder Magnet Features & Characteristics

Approximate Pull Info

The approximate pull info listed is for reference only. These values are calculated under the assumption that the magnet will be attached to a flat, ground 1/2" thick mild steel plate. Coatings, rust, rough surfaces, and certain environmental conditions can significantly reduce the pull force. Please be sure to test the actual pull in your actual application. For critical applications, it is suggested that the pull be de-rated by a factor of 2 or more, depending on the severity of a potential failure.

Manufacturing Methods

Our neodymium rod & cylinder magnets are sintered for optimal magnetic strength and axially magnetized (the magnetism direction is along the axis of the magnet from the north to the south poles). Common finishing options include uncoated, nickel (Ni-Cu-Ni) and gold (Ni-Cu-Ni-Au) plated coatings.

Standard Dimensional Tolerances for NdFeB Rod Magnets

Standard diameter tolerances for Rare Earth Magnets (SmCo & NdFeB) based on the following dimensions:

  • +/- 0.004” on dimensions ranging from 0.040” to 1.000”.
  • +/- 0.008” on dimensions ranging from 1.001” to 2.000”.
  • +/- 0.012” on dimensions ranging from 2.001” to 3.000”.

*Tolerance on length is +/-0.004” regardless of size.
