High Quality Alnico magnets
Thomas & Skinner is the world leader in high-performance magnets and magnetic materials used in strategic weapons systems.
Alnico remains the workhorse of the permanent magnet industry. Alnico can be relied upon to deliver impressive flux density at a reasonable price. Alnico also boasts the lowest temperature coefficient of any commercial magnet material (.02% per degree centigrade). This gives the user excellent stability over a wide temperature range.
Through the years, Thomas & Skinner has developed a reputation as being the world's leading producer of high energy and high coercive alnico permanent magnets. Our history of manufacturing firsts and customer satisfaction are proof of Thomas & Skinner's technical expertise. For instance, our research and development led to our superior grades of alnico 8 and alnico 9, which continue to have the highest energy product and coercive force of any alnico materials in the world. Quite simply, we are known as being the best alnico permanent magnet producer in the world.
Thomas & Skinner manufactures a full range of cast and sintered alnico products, including:
- Alnico 2
- Alnico 5
- Alnico 5-7
- Alnico 6
- Alnico 8
- Alnico 9
Alnico magnets can be manufactured by casting or sintering (powdered metal). The casting process creates magnets with greater density and mass, which provides better magnet performance. Sintered alnico magnets are more economical than cast alnico, yet still retain over 90% of the performance of cast parts.
