Sintered Alnico made by powder metallurgy method of production, for production of complex shape, light, thin, small products,
widely used in instrumentation, communications, magnetic switches and various sensors.
Unlike cated Alnico magnets, sintered Alnico magnets(sintered Alnicos) offer lower magnetic properties but better mechanical characteristics. Mixes of metal powders are pressed to shape and size. The sintering process is well suited to large volume production, and results in parts that are structurally stronger than cast Alnico magnets. Relatively close tolerances can be achieved without grinding.
Application of Sintered Alnico magnets:
•Electronic ignition systems
•Watt bour meters
•Magnetic reed switches
