Advanced Magnet Lab Inc. Receives Notice of Allowance for Patent for Novel Method of Manufacturing Permanent Magnets with Powder-in-Tube Process

MELBOURNE, Fla., June 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc. ("AML") a recognized leader in the development of innovative magnet technologies, has announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has provided a notice of allowance for a pending patent applications covering magnets manufactured by a "powder-in-tube" process.

This breakthrough technology, called PM-Wiretm, takes a new approach for the design, manufacture and optimized performance of permanent magnets and their end-use applications.

PM-Wiretm enables for the manufacturing of permanent magnets at high volume, high yield, low cost and with better flexibility in shapes and magnetization direction as compared to conventionally manufactured magnets that require a significant amount of labor and present challenges with scaling commercially in a regulated environment outside of regions such as China.

Furthermore, PM-Wiretm can enable the use of lower cost rare earth and non-rare earth materials, while improving the performance and lowering the cost of the end-use products such as motors.

Mark Senti, CEO of AML commented, "In AML's process, we fill tubes with magnet alloy powders which are then reduced to the ideal packing density, cross-section and shape in a fully automated process. Magnet sizes can be very long, their shapes can be curved, rings or helical. Additionally, we have propriety tools and methods for magnetization, which provide an ideal magnetic flux distribution, including a continuously changing magnetization. Much like a Halbach array - but better. It is also very low cost to manufacture and super easy to assemble into a motor."

For AML, three examples standout of how this technology improves the performance and lowers the cost of magnet-based products such as motors.

Magnets are at the heart of the products and applications essential to modern society. It is the Magnets which enable electricity, manufacturing, processing of goods, movement of water, tools for construction and transportation. Electrical Machines, motors and generators, are what drive these applications and represent the largest magnet market.
