Magnets that align themselves

Traditional magnets do not necessarily align when attaching to each other. Smart-Mag® pairs can be designed to align with varying levels of precision and with a wide variety of alignment functions. Alignment magnet pairs are made from encoded permanent magnet material and will consistently and repeatedly perform every time without recalibration or maintenance. Smart-Mags™ that align and center offer repeatable, reliable positioning every time. This has application for cameras, scopes, laser pointers, optics and all position sensitive devices. The Detent Pairs listed below have a points in their axial alignment where they resist rotation at a prescribed angle and also have an optimum attract force at this point. When rotated passed this point they rotate easier and also have a reduced/relaxed attract force.

Centering Function Smart-Mags®

Centering pairs feature a distinct type of Alignment magnets that are produced in matching sets and will align with varying levels of precision and from variable gap distances. Encoded multipole Centering magnet will produce forces to achieve axial center alignment that vary with separation distance. The behavior is offered at several gap distances, with greater attachment strength at a short distance, and greater off-center forgiveness at a longer distance.

Countersunk Centering Pairs

Countersunk Centering Pairs have increased axial alignment accuracy compared to a pair of conventionally magnetics disc magnets. They also have an increased pull strength and much better resistance to sheer forces that may try to move the magnets off of center.

Pull strengths were determined with a stainless steel fastener in place. For some applications a ferrous fastener may increase hold and sheer when there is no additional gap present. Forces will be reduced as the gap between the magnets increases if full contact is not possible in a given installation.
