AlNiCo magnets

AlNiCo magnets are alloys of alluminium, nickel, cobalt, iron, copper and titanium. There are 2 production processes: casting and sintering, magnetization is possible only in axial direction.

AlNiCo magnets have high remanence, but low coercivity - this fact determines the magnetization direction. Optimal ratio of diameter and length of the magnet is 1:4. Magnetic field of AlNiCo magnets can be weaken by demagnetizing. AlNiCo is a hard material, machining is possible by grinding.

Working temparature is between -270°C and +500°C. AlNiCo magnets are resistant against acids and solvents.
