Cast alnico magnets



Ask a question about this product

Cast alnico magnets - are use specialized casting techniques to achieve the unique crystalline grain orientation found in the alnico 5 and 8 grades. These anisotropic grades are designed to produce high magnetic output in a specified direction. Orientation is achieved during heat treatment, by cooling the casting from 1250°C at a controlled rate within a magnetic field which conforms to the preferred direction of magnetization. Alnico 5 and Alnico 8 are anisotropic and exhibit a preferred direction of orientation. Magnetic orientation should be specified on your drawing when you send an order to us.

Cast Alnico 5 is the most commonly used of all the cast Alnico's. it combines high indications with a high indications with a high energy product of 5 MGOe or more and is used extensively in rotation machinery, communications, meters and instruments, sensing devices and holding applications.
