The marketing firm, Transparency Market Research, expects that the global demand for permanent magnets will reach USD 28.70 Billion in 2019.  This huge potential of permanent magnets is attributable to its low cost and other physical properties which attract various industries.  In particular, the automotive segment has witnessed a substantial increase in the use of permanent magnets especially to power HEVs and reduce the overall weight of vehicles.  More specifically, these magnets find applications in a wide range of automotive parts including motors, alternators, gearbox, and pollution control.  The energy sector is also another industry that has been using more permanent magnets because of the growing demand on clean and cheap electric power such as the one produced by a wind turbine.  The report sites companies such as Adams Magnetic Products Co., Arnold Magnetic Technologies, Dexter Magnetic Technologies, Electron Energy Corporation, Hitachi Metals Ltd., Lynas Corporation Ltd., Molycorp Inc., OM Group and Shin-Etsu Chemicals Co., Ltd. among others are certain key players present in the global permanent magnets market.  

The increase on permanent magnets and related industries is resulting in a surge in the demand for magnet’s science, CAD, and simulation software. Magnets are primarily used in sensors, memory devices, and force generation.  Therefore, the magnet science and simulation software primarily focus on the accurate computation of magnetic field, magnetic force, magnetic torque, and magnetic flux.  

Compute the Magnetic Force and Field of your Magnet Right Inside your CAD

If you are an engineer and trying to accurately and quickly compute the resulting magnetic force, magnetic torque, magnetic field, or magnetic flux from you design, don’t reinvent the wheel by creating a CAD model of your device or equipment.  Most probably someone in your organization must have an MCAD model of your design.   Grab that model and import it into Solidworks or Autodesk Inventor which have EMWorks’ magnet add-in, EMS and start your magnetic design maneuvering immediately.  Whether it is single or multiple permanent magnets such as the Halbach array, fixed or moving, in a sensor, in a memory device, or part of an electromechanical design, the seamless integration of EMS in the 2 CAD packages will make your magnet design endeavor pleasant and productive.  The following examples illustrate and substantiate our claim.
