Samarium Cobalt Material

Samarium cobalt magnets are extremely hard and brittle and should be protected from shock and mechanical forces when handled in their application. Ones that are relatively thin compared to their pole cross-section (Magnetic Length / Pole Area) will demagnetize easier than those that are thick. Magnetic geometries utilizing backing plates, yokes, or return path structures will respond better to increased temperatures. A team member can help determine if custom machining is required or if “pressed to size” option is possible.
