From recording studios to hospitals, magnets help us do more than you think
When it comes to industrial magnets, neodymium magnets are the most powerful you can buy. At about 18 times the strength of ordinary magnets, they allow manufacturers to make products smaller and lighter while preserving the same field strength as bulkier magnets. These rare earth magnets are used in dozens of products that make our lives easier every day. Check out this list to see some of the coolest uses for these amazing products.
Magnetic Sweeper Bars
Neodymium magnets are used in sweeper bars that can be attached to a vehicle and used to pick up any stray metal scraps, shavings, nails, tacks, or other ferrous metal parts that might cause flat tires or other damage.
Computer Hard Disk Drives
You’re probably using a neodymium magnet right now if you’re reading this on your computer or tablet. They are commonly used on computer hard disk drives to help read and write data.
Electric Guitar Pickups
Neodymium magnets provide power that allows electric guitar pickups to sense the movement of the strings when the guitar is played.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanners
MRI scanners use large powerful neodymium magnets to create a stable magnetic field that allows medical professionals to help locate and diagnose problems in the human body. These machines literally save lives on a daily basis.
For those who need quick, easy retrieval of concealed weapons—such as law enforcement or military—a magnetic gun mount provides access in a vehicle, on a wall, behind furniture or anywhere you need it.
Foreign object debris (FOD) sweepers use magnet attachments to pick up both ferrous and non-ferrous objects such as rocks, sand, metal parts, concrete and asphalt on airport runways.
Very small neodymium magnetic attachments are used to securely hold some dentures in place making it easier for users to eat, talk and do other things without slippage.
In audio speakers and headphones, neodymium magnets work in conjunction with other components to convert electricity into mechanical energy and then sound.
Wind Turbine Generators
The rotating shaft of a wind turbine uses neodymium magnets that turn relative to an assembly of coiled wire to generate voltage in the turbine coil.
Neodymium magnetic strips are used in many home products. Door latches, cabinet closures, knife/tool racks, picture hanging hardware, and magnetic office organizers are all common household uses for these super strong magnets.
