The global permanent magnet market is dominated by rare earth magnets based on the Nd2Fe14B phase accounting for over 60 percent of total sales. The current status of material development and processing technologies will be reviewed. With the forecast growth in applications e.g. in both ICE and HEV/EV markets, the search for alternatives to the current Nd, Pr and Dy alloy compositions is being pursued. Also microstructure engineering through thermomechanical processing is being developed to enhance magnetic performance with lower rare earth content. In addition recycling strategies for EOL magnets are receiving increased attention.
Join Dr. John Ormerod, Senior Technology Advisor with Magnet Applications Inc./JOC LLC as he discusses these technologies and market drivers for the rare earth magnet industry and provides an update on the latest status of the Hitachi Metals patent litigation.

Magnetics Bootcamp Presented by Stan Trout with Spontaneous Materials
Taking place January 24th from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, the Magnetics Bootcamp focuses on teaching you the basics of magnetics with an emphasis on permanent magnets. It assumes that one has little or no background in magnetics. The Bootcamp will cover all the essential fundamental magnetic concepts such as hysteresis, the nature of magnetism, units, magnet processing, thermal effects, magnetizing, self-demagnetization, measurements and case studies.
