Stabilization and Calibration

Stabilization is the deliberate treatment of a magnet by magnetic, thermal, physical, or other controlled external demagnetizing influences so as to preclude or minimize the future change in magnetic performance of a magnet in the field during use.

Calibration is the deliberate treatment of a magnet by magnetic, thermal, physical, or other means to reduce the level of magnetization to a precise, predetermined level, thereby achieving a tighter tolerance on the magnetic performance.

MCE offers both services.

Stabilization is achieved by first saturating the magnet, then subsequently exposing it to adverse conditions predetermined by the customer. If you need help in determining this, let us know. We will assist you with developing the specifications.

Calibration is done by controlling the heat lot of material, confining the material to processing that is similar or identical, then saturating the magnets, and subsequently treating the magnets. Finally, if required, statistical analysis may be utilized to further tighten the tolerance band. Calibration requires the customer to specify the tolerance required, and the method that shall be utilized to measure the magnets (fluxmeter, gaussmeter, location, and other possible criteria).
