Costs magnet processing

How much does it cost to machine magnets? Cost

Factors that determine the cost of machining magnets include:

  • QuantityThe larger the quantity, the lower the costs, as set-up costs have to be amortised over the quantity and special tools can be created for processing larger quantities.
  • Material: SmCo materials are more expensive to machine as they are very brittle, flexible materials are very cost effective to machine due to their physical properties
  • Form: Complex shapes are more expensive than simple shapes; and,
  • TolerancesThe tighter the required tolerances, the more expensive the machining of the magnets will be
