Various Shapes of Magnets and Their Uses

We all know magnets. Magnets have various shapes and sizes, and different magnets have different applications and uses. Today, Atechmagnet, the supplier of magnets, will tell you something about the various shapes and uses of magnets.

1. Strong bar magnet

The power of the magnet is concentrated on the two poles, and weaker on the sides. They are the most commonly used shape in daily life, such as refrigerator magnets and compasses. Strong bar magnets for sale by Atechmagnet are also often used in classroom presentations. For example, you can use a strong bar magnet to display the magnetic field by spreading metal shavings on paper that hides the magnet.

2. Horseshoe magnet

Horseshoe magnets are U-shaped bar magnets. The U-shape makes the magnetic poles point in the same direction, which makes the magnet stronger. Originally as a substitute for bar magnets, this shape has become a universal symbol for magnets. Depending on the strength of the horseshoe magnet, it can be used to pick up metal objects of any size. For example, small horseshoes can collect paper clips, while industrial-sized horseshoe magnets are used in construction and engineering to collect large chunks of heavy metals, and horseshoe magnets are also used on the bottom of a pendulum.

3. Round magnet

A round magnet can increase its attractive force by increasing its thickness. Because the surface of the round magnet is wide and flat, and the magnetic pole area is large, it becomes a strong and effective magnet. According to the size of the circle, this shape has many uses, such as packaging handbags, personal experiments, electronic products and smart homes.

4. Sphere magnet

Sphere magnets are often sold as toys and novel items. Sphere magnets can be used to make popular tabletop toys, such as rattlesnake eggs. They can also be used to make bracelets and necklaces.

5. Cylindrical magnet

A magnet with a height longer than its diameter is usually magnetized in a radial direction. Of course, it can also be magnetized in an axial direction. According to the actual needs of customers, it is suitable for magnetic toys, Hall sensors, galvanometers, medical equipment, etc.

6. Ring magnet

Ring magnets are very versatile and are usually used in scientific experiments. For example, when demonstrating magnetic repulsion, the magnetic ring is passed through a wooden pole. When the same magnetic poles are in contact with each other, they will not touch each other, for which they can be applied in magnetic levitation, electric motors, electroacoustics, salvage, medicine, etc.

7. Counterbore magnet

That is, one or more countersunk holes are punched on the basis of round, square, cylindrical, ring, and tile-shaped magnets and used with screws.

8. Tile/Curved magnet

Tile magnets, also called arc magnets, curved magnets, are often used in various permanent magnet DC motors.

9. Special-shaped magnet

The above magnets are relatively common magnets, while special-shaped magnets are mainly used in special occasions, such as magnetic connectors and some non-standard parts. Common special-shaped magnets include large and small magnets, T-shaped magnets, bevel magnets, semicircular magnets, concave and convex magnets and slotted magnets.
