• TDK plans to manufacture rare-earth magnets in South China

    TDK will begin to manufacture rare-earth magnets ( a kind of strong neodymium magnets) in south China.

    TDK Corp. said it will establish a joint venture in China’s southern Guangdong province in May to manufacture rare-earth magnets, for which global demand is expected to surge.

    The company said the joint venture, Guangdong TDK Rising Rare Earth High Technology Material Co., will be set up by three companies: TDK, Rising Nonferrous Metals Co., a Guangdong-based resource development company, and Tokai Trade Co., a Tokyo-based trading company.

    TDK will hold a 59-percent share in the $33-million venture while Rising Nonferrous Metals and Tokai Trade will have 37 percent and 4 percent, respectively.

    TDK manufactures various electronic devices for use in automobiles, IT equipment and other applications, as well as various magnets for industrial equipment.

    Japan took another step toward lessening its rare earths dependence today, announcing plans to drastically reduce consumption levels in response to China’s continued market dominance. Of particular concern to the Japanese government is dysprosium — a rare earth used in the production of high-powered magnets. China, which accounts for about 95 percent of the world’s rare earth supply, has been tightening export controls on the metal in recent months, sending global prices skyward. With its domestic supplies dwindling, Japan has now committed to reducing its dysprosium consumption by 30 percent over the next few years, as part of a $65 million initiative. Much of that money will presumably go toward helping manufacturers develop alternative production and recycling methods, as some already have. Toyota, for instance, has found a way to produce hybrid and electric vehicles without using dysprosium, while Mitsubishi, Panasonic and TDK are currently looking at ways to extract the metal from old air conditioners. If effective, the government’s program would reduce domestic consumption by between 200 and 400 tonnes per year.

  • How to protect Neodymium Stong Magnets from corrosion

    Surface Treatment of Neodymium magnets

    Corrosion Resistance of Neodymium magnets

    A neodymium-based sintered magnet is liable to oxidization or corrosion because it has for its main components neodymium (Nd) and iron (Fe) and is composed of several phases in a crystalline structure. It is subject to electrochemical corrosion under the presence of a small amount of acid, alkali or water; the magnet rusts and demagnetizes as rusting progresses. Although it remains stable for many hours when it is allowed to stand in a dry atmosphere, it should be surface-treated as a preventive measure for the presence of humidity or a rise in temperature, an event often encountered in a general operating environment. This treatment may become unnecessary when it is used in a hermetically sealed system or in a low-corrosion environment.

    The magnet does not corrode when exposed to general organic solvents or adhesives. However, customers are advised to contact Magpole Technology sales office beforehand if cutting or grinding of any neodymium magnets products is intended. If washing and drying process is involved in processing of the neodymium magnets on the customers side, cautions must be undertaken concerning residual water or condensation of moisture on the magnets. Storing the magnets in a dry atmosphere or in an inert gas is strongly recommended.

    Surface treatment of neodymium magnet

    Neodymium magnets has improved corrosion resistance of the base material itself as a result of structural refinement and compositional uniformity of sintered constituents. Moreover, its reliability is enhanced considerably by the application of surface treatment technologies such as aluminum and nickel coatings. Additionally, greater importance is attached to surface coatings in terms of not only corrosion-resistance performance but also other factors such as adhesive durability and electrical insulation quality, the recently increasing requirements for magnets used in motors. We have developed environmentally sound processes and products that meet these requirements. Customers may use the neodymium magnets products with confidence with regard to these aspects. Our surface treatment technology is in compliance with international environmental standards, such as the RoHS directive and ELV directive.

    Customers are strongly advised to consult with Magpole Technology sales office for technical assistance concerning the surface treatments in order to choose appropriate treatment processes and product types suitable for the intended applications according to the specific usage environment and required characteristics.

  • Uses of Neodymium Magnets from Supramagnets

    Neodymium magnets (Nd-Fe-B) are composed of neodymium, iron, boron and a few transition metals, also known as NdFeB, NIB, or Neo magnet), the most widely used type of rare-earth magnet. Developed in 1982 by General Motors and Sumitomo Special Metals, neodymium magnets are the strongest type of permanent magnet made. They have replaced other types of magnet in the many applications in modern products that require strong permanent magnets.
