Magneti Ljubljana, d.d. is a permanent magnet producer with a long tradition. Through its regular operation and various development projects, frequently in cooperation with research institutions, the company and their employees have gained broad competencies in basic permanent magnet production process, as well as supporting technologies, measurement techniques and in the design of materials, machines and automated magnet or magnetic system production lines. We are able to work with our partners frequently using CAD exchange systems, to support them with magnetic field calculations and to develop dedicated measurement and quality control methods and systems. Magneti Ljubljana also has experience in cooperating in or running projects according to the requirements of the automotive and rail industries.
The majority of production in Magneti Ljubljana is based on product design and specifications provided by customers, the production process being designed and developed by our company. However, in a number of cases the design of individual magnets or magnetic systems, based on basic functional requirements and limitations provided by customers is either supported or even carried out in major part by Magneti. The cooperation in product design phase is particularly favorable and encouraged because it enables Magneti to contribute to functionality and also cost optimized design by repeated evaluations of manufacturability and improvement proposals.
Magneti Ljubljana is constantly monitoring the advancement in new magnetic materials development and is quite successful in developing its own materials and production processes in the attempt to be able to produce as “state-of-the-art” materials as possible. Obviously, the main motive is the sustainable growth and profitability of the company. We have our own R&D department which, frequently in cooperation with external institutions, runs internal material development projects. Observing the risk analysis based on raw material markets and also on general environmental impacts of magnets supply chain we are also very active in international projects focused on recycling of magnet materials, where our work is focused on achieving the best possible material properties, comparable to those of magnets produced with “virgin” raw materials.
Injection molded parts
One of the most recently introduced technologies in our company is injection molding, which is used either for production of magnets or for production of complex magnetic systems. With injection molding technology, complex shaped magnets in a wide range of dimensions can be produced within very narrow tolerances. No further machining is necessary; therefore the somewhat expensive compound material consumption can be optimized. We are able to produce bonded magnets based on various types of magnetic materials (the most common being NdFeB), using either compounds supplied by commercial compound suppliers or compounds produced in our company, based on commercially available magnetic powders.
Based on the newly obtained competencies in injection molding our company has decided to shift focus also to more complex products where various parts, often including sintered or bonded magnets are over-molded with various plastic or bonded magnet material into an assembly which is then used directly in our customer’s product. In the past, our customers often needed to use intermediate suppliers with competencies in injection molding processes which, however, didn’t have any knowledge of magnetic materials. Now, Magneti are able to provide both the magnet and over-molding and can supply the finished semi-product. In addition to over-molded assemblies our company also has experience in producing magnet systems where other “assembling” technologies, most commonly gluing, are applied.
During numerous process development projects a very capable automation department was formed which is able to design and execute complex automation projects with a focus on magnet production and particularly quality assurance. A significant proportion of the production equipment in our company has been either designed or upgraded with custom designed control units by our automation department. The main focus of the department’s current work is the optimization of production processes by automating all work intensive, and particularly quality critical, steps of production processes. The introduction of visual inspection machines and building a comprehensive production data acquisition system are the latest and possibly the most representative projects of our automation team.
