Neodymium magnets, also known as NdFeB magnets, are tetragonal crystals composed of neodymium, iron and boron (Nd2Fe14B). In 1982, Masato Sagawa of Sumitomo Special Metals discovered neodymium magnets, which have a greater magnetic energy product (BHmax) than samarium cobalt magnets, and their maximum magnetic energy product (BH)max is more than 10 times that of ferrite magnets.
Later Sumitomo Special Metals successfully developed a powder metallurgy process and GM successfully developed a melt-spinning process that can prepare neodymium magnets. NdFeB has excellent machinability and works at temperatures up to 200°C. With stable performance and good cost performance, this magnet is the most commonly used rare earth magnet and is widely used in electronic products, such as hard drives, mobile phones, headphones, battery-powered tools, etc.
