Magnetization Direction for Neodymium Magnets

Neodymium magnets vary in shapes and sizes, and different shapes have their own corresponded magnetization directions.

 

Magnetization Direction for Disc & Cylinder Type

Disc and Cylinder magnets can be axially or diametrically magnetized.

Axial Magnetization

Diametrical Magnetization

 

Magnetization Direction for Block Type

We define all the magnetization direction for all Neodymium block magnets as Through the Thickness.

Magnetization Direction for Sphere Type

For Neodymium sphere magnets, there is only one type of magnetization: axial magnetization.
