MAGSYS magnetizers allow the magnetization, adjustment and also the demagnetization of isotropic and anisotropic magnetic materials of different sizes. In particular, all highly coercive magnetic materials, such as Sm2Co17 or plastic-bonded NdFeB magnets, can be magnetized easily and with short cycle times. In addition to raw magnets, e.g. directly after production, complete workpieces with magnets already installed can also be magnetized.
The necessary energy of the magnetizer is mainly determined by the required magnetizing field strength and the size of the workpiece. The modular design allows best adaptation to your requirements. This results in an optimal price/performance ratio. At the same time, subsequent adaptation to modified magnet products is also possible.
The systems are suitable for 3-shift operation in an automated production environment as well as for use at manual workstations or in the laboratory. The systems can be used without problems in polluted environments, as they are often found in magnet production, as well as in clean rooms.
Standard built-in interfaces allow the connection to complex process controls and also the connection to automatic process control or quality assurance systems. Standard built-in pulse current measurement ensures the required magnetizing field strength for each magnetization.
The energy of the device is usually between 100 Ws and 300 kWs at a charging voltage of 850 to 5000 V. The figure shows different devices with different energy.
If required, electronic switching between several capacitance and thus energy levels is possible. This can be particularly useful in combination with several high-current outputs for connecting different magnetizing devices. Different pulse shapes - also electronically switchable combined in one device - can be realized.
The peak current of the system is measured so that it monitors itself.
When connecting a MAGSYS magnetizing device, its temperature is measured and switched off when the limit temperature is reached.

Sine- shaped pulse
Sine-shaped rise of the magnetic field with sine-shaped decay. This type minimizes the fixture's heating up.
Exponential- shaped pulse
Sine-shaped rise of the magnetic field with e-shaped decay. This type causes the least possible rate of change of the magnetic field and thus minimizes possible problems with eddy currents.

max. 50 kA during normal operation. The real output current and the pulse duration depend on the impedance of the magnetizing fixture.
The magnetizing current is measured and displayed. There is a potentiol free analog output to control the pulse shape.
Typically 2.5 µH / 2 mOhm
The permissable impedance of the magnetizing fixture should be higher than 8 µH / 10 mOhm.
The pulse rate (di/dt) is max. 1000 A / µs.
The load to the mains supply is kept nearly constant during the charging process. This gives a minimum charging time with minimum power loss. The control is synchronized with the line frequency. This avoids excessive load current and disturbing spikes on the mains supply.
Depending on the required cycle time, you can choose between different charging types: 600 Watts, 1800 Watts and 3600 Watts. Other charging powers on request.
The charging time depends on the total energy of the magnetizer and the charging power of the charging unit. It is determined as charging time = energy / charging power; typical times are between 1 and 30 seconds.
The typical cycle time is charging time + 500 ms.
Control and Operation
The machine is internally controlled by a Motorola microprocessor. The operation panel is equipped with a foil keyboard, thus being protected against moisture and dirt. The information is displayed on a graphical LCD (visible area 135mm x 40mm). The display is resistant against magnetic fields and is fitted with green background illumination.
By using the keyboard, you can input values such as charging voltage, limits of peak current monitoring, selection of output, and other parameters. Manual control of recharging, firing etc. also makes use of this keyboard. On the other hand, it is also possible to use a remote control and the device´s automatic control system. All relevant parameters are stored permanently inside the magnetizer, so that in case of power fail or after switching off the machine none of these data are lost. When switched on again, the magnetizer can continue operation without any need of new entries.
The voltage of the capacitors is permanently displayed. After a pulse has been fired, the peak current is also displayed.
Moreover, the software contains several service functions to ease check of the machine in case of an accident.
The magnetizer's serial interface allows fast software updates. The only thing required is a PC. By this, any changes in order to fit the equipment to varied production environment can be done within short time and at low cost.
The magnetizer is equipped with a number of safety features. Through these, a trouble-free and safe operation of the magnetizer can be ensured.
The charging process is continuously controlled by the microprocessor system. During malfunction the power unit is separated from the line supply and will be discharged.
The temperature of the magnetizing fixture is measured and displayed. On reaching the selected limit values, you will hear an alarm and the magnetizing system will be stopped.
The voltage at the capacitor banks is controlled both by the microprocessor system and by an independent circuit.
The magnetizer is equipped with an emergency off button on the front side.
Discharge of capacitor banks
The capacitor banks are automatically discharged during malfunctioning of the system or during power failure. This can be done manually via the operating panel.
To recognize errors in the magnetizing fixture early, the ohmic resistance of the fixture is permanently controlled. If no fixture is connected or if the resistance exceeds 3 W, any further magnetization will be stopped and an error message will be issued.
The output current is measured and displayed during magnetization. The minimum and maximum limit values can be selected via the control board. The system will be switched off when these limit values are exceeded.
