FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
How are the magnets magnetised? Where are the poles?
Magnet shapes and magnetisation directions
Only a few of our neodymium block magnets are magnetised in longitudinal direction. We also call this type of magnetisation parallel to side 1. That means, that the north-south axis runs parallel to side 1 of the block magnet. Follow the link for an overview of block magnets with longitudinal magnetisation.
We currently do not offer block magnets with a magnetisation direction parallel to side 2. If you are interested in this type of magnet, please complete the custom order form and we will send you an offer.
If a ring magnet is diametrically magnetised, it means the direction of the north-south axis runs parallel to the height. We currently only offer this type of magnetisation as a custom-made product.
On the inside of pot magnets are axially magnetised magnets made of neodymium or ferrite. The north pole of our pot magnets is always located on the “open” side, the south pole is covered by the steel pot. We do not carry versions with reversed magnetisation. You can find additional information in the FAQ "What are special features of a pot magnet?".
