Neodymium Applications

Neodymium magnets have a variety of uses, which makes perfect sense considering they’re extremely strong, and affordable. Here are just a few of the ways you’ll see neodymium magnets applied to everyday life:

  • Electronics — Cell phones, loudspeakers, headphones, and more everyday electronics use neodymium magnets.
  • Industrial applications — Alternators, flow meters, linear actuators, gyroscopes.
  • Clamps — A couple neodymium blocks or cubes are perfect for holding pieces of metal in place. This is most common when used for welding, drilling, or machining purposes.
  • Green Energy — Both hybrid and electric vehicles employ neodymium magnets, as do wind turbines.
  • Healthcare — Pacemakers and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines use neodymium magnets.
  • Oil Filters — Ever wonder how metal chips are filtered out of oil? Neodymium magnets!
  • Stud Finders — These magnets are powerful enough to find hidden nails and other metal pieces inside walls.
  • Magnetic Therapy — For those who use magnetic therapy as a healing tool, neodymium magnets fit the bill perfectly. There are different sized blocks to choose from depending on the size of the body being worked on.
  • Closers — Need to hold a brochure, box, binder, or other presentation piece shut? Neodymium magnets are perfect for the job.
  • Toys — You’ve probably played with magnets at some point in your life. They were probably neodymium magnets! They’re used quite often as entertainment.
  • Remagnetization — Neodymium magnets can be used to put the magnetization back in other types of magnets, such as Alnico horseshoes and other bar magnets.
  • Metal Detectors — Did you know neodymium magnets are used in metal detectors?
