Flexible magnets are much cheaper than other types of magnetic material; they offer a unique combination of properties (Flexibility and Magnetism) at a much lower cost than you would find other magnetic material. Flexible ones permit design innovations due to the match in ability and flexibility of the product.

They also allow fairly simple manufacturing techniques not possible with the material brittle or jagged. Flexible magnets strips are used in a wide variety of applications and products.

These magnets can Be Punched, Bent, rolled, twisted and otherwise machine to almost any shape imaginable without losing their magnetic energy. The only downside to this is that the magnetic properties of magnetic materials are not as strong as the others, but in some cases, this is more characteristic.

Magnet Flexible Manufacturing Method

A calendar is a method of producing the material in sheet form; it is able to produce sheets up to approximately 24 "wide. (This method involves squeezing the compound between a set of rollers, it compresses the compound and evenly into the sheet. To achieve the desired thickness of the sheet is placed between the rollers several times until the thickness of the right has been reached)

Extrusion is a method used to produce materials in the form of strips; it is capable of producing strips between ¼ "to 10" wide.

(This method involves squeezing a compound that has been heated through a die that has been pre-shaped. As there were dead material was cooled and then magnetized, there are different grades are available with a standard class only has one side of the magnetized).
