Magnets in aerospace engineering have been used for decades and are designed to be used in extreme environments and to work over a long period of time.
In fact, the aerospace industry is a sector that has experienced great technological and scientific advances in recent years. Therefore, as the demands and temperatures of the challenges have increased, it has been necessary to manufacture magnets that support them and successfully accomplish many of the missions we know today.
Magnets in aerospace engineering must have a series of specific attributes that allow them to adapt to the environment in which they will be used, so that, among the basic conditions of use, they must:
When designing magnets in aerospace engineering, critical requirements of tensile forces, torques, field strength, temperature and sensor specifications, among others, must be taken into account.
For example, for a critical mission, a permanent magnet can be designed to detect the position of an actuator, detect fluid flow rates, make fuel pumps and operate temperature generators.
