Praseodymium is an element that can also be used for permanent magnetization. Uses for this type of magnet include in electrical motors and machinery in hybrid cars and wind agents. The element is also known for when it is combined with Magnesium to form tough metal designed for the engines in airplanes.
Though discovered over a century ago, Neodymium remains a critical element with a variety of uses for when it is the main source in Neodymium-Iron-Boron magnets (also known as NIB magnets, Neodymium magnets, and neos). These Neodymium magnets are used widely for all different types of purposes, even extending to the fields of medical science, technology advancement, and entertainment.
When it comes to Neodymium discs and rods, there is a great deal of ways to use the magnets. Certain toys and technology devices depend on Neodymium discs in order to magnetize and function properly. Because Neodymium discs can come in sizes even smaller than a penny, they are ideal for fitting in needed places for products such as cell phones, necklace and bracelet clasps, and door catches.
Whether you require Neodymium magnet rods or discs, Radial Magnets has the shape and size of the magnet you need! With only the strongest type of magnet, we know you will be satisfied when using our Neodymium magnets for your projects.
History of Neodymium
Neodymium was found by the Austrian chemist Carl Auer von Welsbach in 1885. The Earth Rock element was separated from Didymium, which is a material that was mistakenly thought by Swedish scientist Carl Mosander to be an element in 1841. When isolating Neodymium, Auer also discovered Praseodymium. The term Neodymium is Greek and translates to “new twin,” which is a title referring to the element’s similarities with Praseodymium.
