The alloy of iron with aluminium, nickel and cobalt as well as copper can be used at temperatures from -270°C to 500°C and is resistant to most acids. You can find many versions of AlNiCo magnets at masetec.

Use of AlNiCo magnets

The use of AlNiCo magnets is especially advantageous where there are high temperature fluctuations or the magnets must withstand the influence of acids or corrosion. Examples for their use are measuring instruments, sensors, electric motors or loudspeakers.

Design of AlNiCo magnets

AlNiCo magnets can contain iron, copper or titanium in addition to the basic materials aluminum, nickel and cobalt.

Production of AlNiCo magnets

AlNiCo magnets are sintered or cast. In the casting process the components are melted and poured into moulds. In the sintering process the materials are pulverized, pressed under high pressure and sintered under vacuum or inert gas.

Coatings on AlNiCo magnets

Because AlNiCo magnets are extremely corrosion and acid resistant, they do not require any coating.

Advantages of AlNiCo magnets

  • Temperature resistant from -270 to 550°C
  • Constant magnetic field even with large temperature fluctuations
  • Extremely corrosion resistant

Caution with AlNiCo magnets

  • Low coercivity
  • Can only be processed by grinding due to its high mechanical hardness
  • Easy to demagnetize
