Diskspace Magnetic Capture is a simple way to create a magnetic field within a sheet of metal. It will hold a piece of paper flat against a flat surface. To create the magnetic field, all you need is a piece of thin steel wire (or some type of flexible copper wire) and a piece of magnet paper. Wrap the wire around the magnet paper and make sure it is completely covered by the paper. Then, place your piece of magnet paper inside the hole in the center of the magnet. Once your paper is covered completely, close the hole in the center.
Magnetic Interference: The only real way to interfere with a disk is to expose the sensitive parts of the magnet to an alternating magnetic field. Thus, the best way to interfere is to use a high resistance switching device that produces an alternating current in the presence of a magnetic field. The most commonly used switching devices are the widely used RING MAN THERMOMETER and the RING HOLE. RING MAN is the name of the cheapest but most widely used switching device. This device is based on a ring shape and a large base.
RING HOLE is an inexpensive but effective radially oriented ring magnetization method. It works on a cavity that has a series of cavities at different levels of the ring's thickness. The outermost level of the cavity is radially oriented (at the top) and hence has no effect on the internal cavities below.
In this type of ring construction, the outermost (or topmost) layers of the ring are always magnetized. These magnetized layers are arranged in a linear manner inside the ring, providing a smooth continuous alignment. This orientation provides a very efficient alignment system for the entire device. The most effective alignment method can be found to be the one that keeps the most surfaces of the magnets aligned in a plane that lies below the surface tension of the magnets.
A second type of ring construction that produces anisotropic magnetism is based on a series of quadrant-shaped concentric circular arcs. These arc segments are arranged in such a way as to create a much higher permeability than the unoriented rings. This is a very important advantage, because the high permeability allows for much higher currents to flow through the device. It has been observed that when these high currents are applied along an oriented channel lined with small holes, the flow rate is much higher than the flow rate obtained when the currents were applied along a flat unipolar surface. In addition, the intensity of the field is much higher in the case of a radially oriented ring construction than in the case of unipolar.
A third variation on the anisotropic ring design is based on the use of radially oriented rare earth magnets. This variation uses a ring of rare earths within a ring of steel particles that are arranged in a way that makes it more difficult for a magnetic force to pass through. In the case of this design, the thickness of the radially oriented ring tends to be much thicker and the distribution of the rare earths tends to be localized to a core.
The preferred design in the case of a Radial Block Magnet consists of a unidirectional metallic force field that is produced by two or more high-pitched aluminum or titanium rings that are arranged in a cylindrical pattern. It is a matter of considerable convenience to create such a configuration using only a few individual components, because the cost of materials needed is very low. A variation on the radial construction can also be made using ten copper or neodymium magnets rather than the usual four. The ten magnets are arranged in a ring so that their relative orientation creates a much higher permeability than the unidirectional rings.
The use of a Radial Block Magnet in manufacturing can be found in several applications. One popular example is the manufacture of belt-driven conveyor belts. These belts are usually composed of a number of circular rings of neodymium magnets with their respective poles aligned along the length of the belt material. The alignment of the rings prevents the rotation of the belt's centerline over a large portion of its length, which allows the conveyor belt to be pushed through a very large volume of material at a relatively low force level. In the process, this increases the production of the belts' full useful life span.
