Equipment Required to Slice Neodymium Magnets
Industrial machining of neodymium magnets requires special equipment. They include:
QP Slicer is an industrial slicing machine used by factories and manufacturers to slice neodymium magnets into smaller pieces. And it ensures precise and uniform slicing performance due to the blade head’s hydraulic system.
This slicer also has an adjustable thickness and variable speed. You can use it to cut varying thicknesses of neodymium magnets at a rate of your choice. It’s also designed with an emergency stop feature to prevent accidents during usage.
The Inner Circle Slicer is another industrial equipment that can cut neodymium magnets into smaller shapes and pieces. In particular, this machine is capable of cutting circles into neodymium magnets.
Intermediate-speed Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (WEDM)
Wire Electrical Machining is an industrial process established in the mid-1900s. It is currently one of the most adopted electrothermal machining processes, i.e., cutting, shaping, or removing material from a workpiece using electrical energy and heat.
Intermediate-speed Wire Electrical Machining uses a flexible but tensile traveling wire electrode of about 7-12km, with a high bending strength, vertically positioned in the machining zone to cut through workpieces.
During machining, the electromotive process removes deionized water or other working fluid to remove the particles detached from a workpiece.
High-speed Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (WEDM)
High-speed Wire Electrical Machining works the same way as the Intermediate-speed WEDM, albeit with very high speeds of traveling movement of the wire electrode in both directions.
Compared to Intermediate-speed WEDM, High-speed WEDM ensures a 200-600% increase in cutting speed. And because it uses anodic dissolution and electrical discharges in its machining process, some may classify this method as a hybrid machining process rather than pure WEDM.
Neodymium Magnet Laser Cutting Machine
A laser cutting machine uses a high-powered laser to cut, mark, engrave, or etch different materials, including metal, steel, aluminum, stone, tile, glass, etc., for industrial or commercial purposes.
The operator will clear a neodymium magnet laser cutting machine to cut through metal and other hard materials. The three types of laser cutters are Co2, Crystal, and Fibre laser cutters.
Some advantages of cutting neodymium magnets with a laser cutter include high precision and accuracy, no risk of contamination, high production speed, control over the shape or pattern of the cutting, and more.
