Permanent Magnet Guide and Reference

The Permanent Magnet Guide and Reference is a practical source of information about permanent magnetic products, their specification, and application. Originally released in 1987, the newest 111-page version expands on the latest development of new materials and changes within the magnet industry. The Permanent Magnet Guide and Reference is useful for engineers new to the field of magnetics, assisting them in the performance of responsibilities of inspection, specification, and use. It will also help management teams of businesses incorporating magnets in their products make better informed decisions regarding their acquisition and use, including benefits and limitations of each material. Purchasing and sales personnel will appreciate interacting with vendors and customers from a position of knowledge and understanding. Quality assurance can benefit from the information regarding test and evaluation. All parties benefit from communicating with a standard vocabulary, terminology, and symbols. Numerous references are cited for those desiring to delve further into specific areas.
