One of the specialties that magnets have is their ability to attract all the typical metals out there. Over the years, science has developed and discovered different types of magnets, and among them, the most powerful one is neodymium magnet. As they are the strongest and the most powerful ones, they have got numerous applications. They are used in electric vehicles, motors, generators, magnetic balls toys, and many more.
When talked about magnets, it is good to find out the country that has got the highest amount of resources for magnets. As per the latest statistics, China is said to excavate about 95% of the rare earth minerals in the world. The country also processes the magnet minerals and transforms them into suitable type of magnets for various applications. A study shows that the huge amount of magnetic resources in China helps the electronic industries in the country. Despite the good sides of excavated magnets, it should be noted that the processes involved in the excavation of them cause serious dangers to the environment.
Among rare earth magnets, neodymium magnets amount to the majority. In recent times, different types of artificial magnets have been identified. These magnets are as powerful as neodymium magnets or even more powerful sometimes.
Components that constitute the new type of magnets include iron nitride and theoretical magnetic energy of 130 mega gauss. These magnets are quite powerful and are used in many electronic applications being in use today. Moreover, it is quite cheaper to produce these magnets than excavating the original neodymium magnets.
When iron nitrate was used alone in certain applications in the past, those applications didn’t work in the proper way because they would get transformed into powders or thick films. Because of this, scientists started to look for new forms of magnets. Furthermore, in scenarios where bulk fabrication of iron nitride was necessary, they caused lots of inconveniences.
In the earlier days, any work with iron nitride yielded imperfect result. However, this new process allows bulk fabrication of iron nitride that was then used successfully in numerous scenarios. All existing mass production techniques required in the formation process of iron and nitrogen production are cheap.
