Due to their exceptional magnetic power, Rare Earth magnets are available in a greater variety of shapes and sizes than what is available in other forms of permanent magnets. Alnico, Ferrite and Samarium Cobalt all require more magnetic material to achieve a comparable hold to that of strong Neodymium magnets. The Neodymium magnets for sale at AMF are available in a wide range of standard shapes including discs, blocks, cylinders, pots, rings or spheres. However, should you require a custom shape or grade of magnet please don't hesitate to get in contact with our sales team.

Our range of Neodymium Magnets

The Rare Earth magnets for sale through our AMF website can also be found in a range of grades from N35 through to N52. At AMF you can buy Neodymium magnets in more specialty grades that are less commonly available that enable the magnet to withstand higher operating temperatures. This allows the magnet to perform reliably in a more diverse range of applications such as manufacturing processes that require heat treatments and sterilisation processes.

Our AMF website is always kept up to date to showcase our unparalleled range of Neodymium magnets online, including the large range of magnet coatings available. Each different coating has unique properties which contribute to the versatility of applications these powerful Neo magnets can be used for. Coatings such as Teflon and Gold enhance the magnet’s ability to withstand corrosive elements. Whereas rubber and plastic coatings provide a robust outer shell that helps to reduce the effects of physical impacts on the strong Neodymium magnets within.

If you are searching for ‘Neodymium Magnets near me’ the great news is AMF has got you covered. You can buy neodymium magnets from the comfort of your home and we will send them to your door. We ship all over New Zealand and overseas too. We take customer service seriously and do our very best to get your magnets to you as soon as possible. We are New Zealand’s favourite magnet supplier, known for our fantastic service as well as our huge range of Rare Earth magnets online.

Uses for our Strong Neodymium Magnets

Neodymium magnets are the most powerful permanent magnets commercially available due to their superior magnetic field and their great strength and coercivity. They offer a very impressive size to strength ratio – even the tiniest Neodymium magnet can hold an extraordinary amount of weight. These factors make them ideal for many industrial applications where a strong and reliable magnetic hold is required. Many industries rely on magnets for metal separation during processing, including mining, food services and agriculture to name just a few.

Rare Earth magnets are also heavily utilised in printing houses, warehouses and metalworks. The strength of these permanent magnets makes them ideal for industries such as these where heavy machinery and parts are the norm. Magnets and magnetic tools such as lifters and pot magnets provide a safe and yet adjustable way of holding, moving and storing heavy objects regardless of their bulk. Neodymium magnets come in a range of different protective coatings such as Nickel, Teflon or Gold. These are each suited to different operating environments.

Regardless of the industry, there is a magnetic solution to just about any storage problem; magnetic hooks are just one example of where magnets can be utilised to achieve a great storage result. Neodymium magnets are encased in a steel housing with a hook attachment, making them robust and easy to use. Attach them to any ferrous metal surface, like a steel post, window frame, shelving or locker and you benefit from this non-invasive storage solution. The powerful rare earth hook magnets accommodate heavy items with our range extending up to 164kg pull force.

The Neodymium magnets bought online are shipped to a myriad of different customers. Craftspeople of every ilk have embraced the benefits of strong rare earth magnets. Woodworkers, cabinet makers, artists, lighting specialists, prop makers and fashion designers have all discovered how much power even the smallest Neo magnet can bring to the table. Perfect for well-camouflaged clasps or joins, Rare Earth magnets in their smaller forms provide pinpoint accuracy and reliability. The beauty of magnetic attachment means a sustainable hold can be achieved when in use and items can easily be prised apart when required for moving or adjusting.

These Rare Earth magnets are approximately 7 times stronger than our Ceramic Magnets however Neodymium magnets will begin to lose their magnetic ability when subjected to temperatures over 80 degrees Celsius. Therefore, if you’re looking for magnets that can resist high temperatures, a more suitable option may be Ferrite or Samarium Cobalt magnets.

Neodymium Rare Earth Magnets properties:

Rare Earth magnets are produced by the powder metallurgical method and their chemical composition is Nd2Fe14B. Neodymium magnets are a hard and brittle form of a magnet. They have the least corrosion resistance of all commercial magnets and therefore come in a range of coatings to help protect the magnetic material within. Neodymium magnets are magnetically stable and provide high resistance to demagnetisation. With a superior cost to performance ratio, Rare Earth magnets are our most popular product by far. 


What is the difference between rare earth magnets and regular magnets?

Neodymium magnets or Rare Earth magnets as they are also known, are far more powerful than more traditional types of magnets such as Ferrite magnets. There is a range of differences between the various types of magnets including strengths, coatings and operating temperatures which will determine which is the right type of magnet for your application.

What are rare earth magnets?

A Rare Earth or Neodymium magnet has the chemical composition Nd2Fe14B and they are formed by the powder metallurgical method. Relative to other types of magnets, Neodymium magnets are a hard and brittle form of magnet. For more information please refer to the technical specification sheet provided for each product.

Is neodymium the strongest magnet?

Put simply YES. Neodymium is exceptionally powerful with a far more effective size to strength ratio than traditional forms of magnet. If you are looking for the strongest magnetic hold in the smallest form then Rare Earth magnets are the best choice. Each product has a pull force listed to indicate its strength. For more information on how the pull force is calculated please refer to our FAQ page.

Are Neodymium magnets safe?

Small magnets are generally considered safe and can be comfortably handled by most people. Small magnets can pose a risk to small children and carers should take care to ensure small magnets are kept out of reach of children. Additionally, people with medical devices such as pacemakers should follow the guidance provided by the device manufacturer. Large industrial Neodymium magnets are powerful and should be handled with great care. Please ensure you refer to the safety guideline provided and the handling guide before handling these products.

What are neodymium magnets used for?

The beauty of Neodymium magnets is they can be used for an infinite array of applications. Popular with craftspeople for their petite size and versatility Neo magnets allow for minimal visual impact on the final creation. Likewise, engineers of all types have embraced Rare Earth magnets in the design of many devices and technical applications as they achieve reliable precision in a compact form. However, it is in industrial and manufacturing applications where we see heavy-duty Neodymium magnets holding and securing to their full potential.

How much are neodymium magnets?

The price of each Neodymium magnet is determined by the amount of magnetic material it contains. The grade of magnets, such as N32 or N52 directs the strength of the magnets and the cost of the magnet. Another factor that impacts the price is the coating; Gold for instance is more expensive than the more common Nickel coating. Discounts are available for many products bought in bulk quantities, please refer to the tiered pricing structure listed on each product page.

The Pull Force listed for each magnet is based on lifting 10mm thick steel from a horizontal surface. Magnets on a vertical surface (of 10mm thick steel) are generally able to hold around only 30% of the pull force listed in the product description. This is due to the effects of gravity and the lack of friction between the surface and the shiny magnet. Read More
