Magnetism, a science in itself


Mastering magnetism is our task. Therefore our development department has a particularly high status within our company. Optimum magnet solutions demand the involvement of specialists from the very beginning. For this reason, we place value on the provision of consultation for our individual solutions. In order to be capable of realising your product ideas, our experienced experts in development and application engineering are available to assist you. Together with you, they define all technical framework conditions and implement these. Core topics are the optimisation of the geometry, the material and the mechanical requirements – but also important secondary aspects such as the assembly, handling and packaging are taken into account.

In our strategic development department, we concern ourselves with new procedures, materials, tools, processes and applications. Here we keep an eye not just on possible later serial applications and mass production, but also promote future-orientated topics such as “rapid prototyping”. This development process is certified acc. to DIN ISO 9001.

Our team for product development and realisation accompanies the development of a customer-specific part, including the determination of the specifications and testing procedures. Logistics are also taken into account, as well as, depending on requirements, reusable and automatable packaging suitable for magnets and its further processing at your company.

In cooperation with other companies, institutions, universities and research facilities, we concern ourselves with interesting pre-competitive topics, in part using public funds..


For simulations the following calculation methods are part of our standard: design of magnetic circuits, field calculations, MFOS (magnetic flow orientation simulation) and tailor-made hybrid materials.

  • Configuration of magnetic circuits

    We use traditional (analogue) procedures to design closed magnetic circuits which we then optimize in accordance with freely definable criteria.

  • Field calculations

    We use numerical 2 and 3-dimensional procedures (finite element method, linear and non-linear, static) to calculate magnetic fields and optimize their configuration.

  • MFOS (magnetic flow orientation simulation)

    Using this procedure which we developed in-house, it is possible to transfer the data from field calculations for injection molding tools directly to the field calculations for injection molded magnets. In this way, we are able to optimize the field distribution of multipolar rings for special sensors or motor applications (sinusoidal or rectangular surface induction plot etc.)

  • Customized hybrid materials

    A European consortium in which we participated investigated the interaction of multiple magnetic components. Our contribution: An algorithm for the computation of the magnetic properties of multi-component systems (hybrid materials).

If you have any questions about research and development, we are at your disposal.
