Extending the Limits of the Sm2Co17 System

By Steve Constantinides | Arnold Magnetic Technologies

The 2010-2011 rare earth crisis appears over. Prices are low and adequate raw material is available. Many of the efforts initiated to find a better non-rare earth permanent magnet have ended in disappointment. Programs such as Fe-nitride, core-shell exchange coupled magnets and enhanced alnico are continuing but with limited success to-date and significant hurdles remaining. It is in this framework that revisiting one of the more significant magnet materials seems a reasonable proposition. What material, you ask? Well, the strongest permanent magnet material at and above 150C, the one with excellent corrosion resistance and superior temperature stability Sm2Co17. MORE

The Design of a Permanent Magnet Motor for a Direct Drive Fan Application

By Lowell Christensen, Consultant | Lowell Christensen LLC

In this case study we will compare two types of permanent magnet brushless motors for a medium size overhead fan used in agricultural types of applications. The comparison will be done on the magnetic circuit portion of the motors only so the only volumes and weights compared will be the magnetic circuit parts including the magnet, back iron, lamination and copper wire.
