Introduction To Alnico Magnets
This website was developed by Geno Jezek,

magnetic material and custom fridge magnets since 1999.
Alnico magnets are made from an alloy of ALuminum, NIckle and CObalt, hence the name. In addition to the above three, there can also be other metals added to the composition at times like Titanium and Copper. By varying the composition it is possible to tailor the magnetic properties to meet the needs of a wide variety of user ended applications.
Manufacturing Alnico Magnets
Alnico magnets are manufactured by using primarily two processes:
Attributes of Alnico Magnets
Alnico magnets have several attributes that make them highly desirable materials for industrial use. Developed in the 1940s, the Alnico magnets continue to be the desired choice of material for many applications. The exceptional linear temperature characteristics exhibited by alnico magnets along with high magnetic flux density and good corrosion resistance are ideally suited for use in products of all sizes and shapes. Alnico magnets display the following unique properties:
Applications Of Alnico Magnets
Alnico magnets are commonly used in applications such as instruments and meters that require very stable temperature properties. Electronic ignition systems, generators, vending machines, hand tools, magnetic reed switches, volt-amp meters and medical instruments are some of the commonly used applications of alnico magnets.
Other applications include:
In brief, alnico magnets are suited for all types of products from miniscule cellphones weighing less than a gram to radar focusing magnets weighing fifty pounds or more.
From the time they were developed till date, alnico magnets continue to be the most widely used, most popular and economical magnets in the industry.
