SmCo Rectangular Magnets

SmCo rectangular(Rectangle) magnets offer excellent rust resistance to water because of  little free iron being present in its structure. Due to its brittle nature,care should be taken when assembling with SmCo rectangular magnets  (e.g. wear safety glasses). SmCo magnets could break, chip, snap or possibly even shatter if mishandled. The stability of magnetic performance makes Samarium Cobalt magnets a popular choice for medical, aerospace, automotive, audio, motor, generator, pump, sensor and military applications.

Care required for handling Samarium Cobalt Rectangular Magnets

SmCo rectangular Magnets are very strong and brittle, appropriate handling and packing  required to ensure safety and prevent damage.

The brittle nature of the alloy can lead to flying chips if the magnets are allowed to impact each other or a solid surface. Most receiving departments are not familiar with the strength of Samarium Cobalt magnets and this can result in injury or broken parts. All personnel that may come in contact with this alloy should be made aware of the dangers of handling these magnets.  Larger SmCo rectangular magnets can become a pinching hazard if caution is not exercised. We remind all customers to  handle SmCo rectangular magnets with care.

Available Energy Product and Grades for Rare Earth SmCo Rectangular Magnets

Various grades of Samarium Cobalt(SmCo) rectangular (rectangle)magnets are supplied by us for industrial and commercial applications. The magnetic energy of rectangular SmCo magnet range from 16 to 32 MGOe. The grade range make balancing cost, magnetic performance, and operational temperature resistance possible.

There are two main types of rectangular Samarium Cobalt (SmCo) rare earth magnets.  The older type is SmCo5 rectangular magnet, which typically denoted as (1-5) having one Samarium atom per 5 Cobalt atoms, and the newer is Sm2Co17 rectangular magnets,which have an atomic ratio of two Samarium atoms to 17 Cobalt atoms.
