Block magnet

Block magnets find numerous applications, including:

  1. Extracting iron from material flows in the recycling industry. Often suspended directly above conveyor belts.
  2. Serving as a base for overbelt magnets.
  3. Cleaning products: removing iron from materials such as wood, grain, plastic, debris, sugar, chocolate, etc.
  4. Magnetic transport, clamping, processing, etc.
  5. Machinery Protection: Shielding machinery from iron particles down the line.
  6. Sheet separators, terrain cleaning, handpicking, sampling for quality purposes, etc.

To maintain magnet effectiveness, captured iron must be periodically removed. This can be achieved manually or through various systems, such as a conveyor belt.

Our block magnets offer versatility in dimension, orientation (transverse or longitudinal setup), polarity (classic north-south setup), and array setup (intensive for small particles at large distances). We can also customize magnet configurations, including very intense setups and field weakening for better discharge, catering to diverse needs and applications.

Ceramic versus Neodymium blokmagnets

Ceramic magnets are cost-effective, with moderate strength. They are effective in many applications but maybe not strong enough for more complex applications.

Neodymium magnets, on the other hand, are the strongest magnets available. They offer exceptional strength and are relatively lightweight. Using neodymium material allows for the assembly of highly powerful block magnets.

When choosing between ceramic and neodymium magnets, we consider the specific requirements of your application, balancing cost, strength, and performance to achieve optimal results.

Powerblock or even stronger?

Over the years, we have become specialised in the production of neodymium (NdFeB) block magnets. While the magnet's strength is influenced by the material used, its internal structure also plays a crucial role. Neodymium magnets inherently offer exceptional strength, resulting in powerful block magnets.

By incorporating a Halbach array within these block magnets, we can enhance their strength even further—reaching astonishing levels comparable to electromagnets. Moreover, the dimensions of these magnets are almost limitless.

Thanks to our extensive experience in the production process, we can manufacture these blocks competitively. However, it's important to note that the prices of raw materials for this magnetic material have fluctuated significantly in recent years, which can impact pricing.


Today's magnetic materials, particularly Neodymium magnets, boast remarkable strength. A well-designed Neodymium magnet can rival the power of an industrial electromagnet. Unlike electromagnets, Neodymium magnets do not require electricity, eliminating the need for control cabinets and offering nearly constant force as they do not generate heat. Please note: these Neodymium magnets cannot be turned off.
