What is it about?

In this study, 10, 35, and 54wt% strontium ferrite bonded magnets using polyamide 12 binder were developed by twin screw compounding technology and then 3D printed under a magnetic field in zero, and in 0.5 Tesla (H parallel to the print direction and print bed). The magnetic hysteresis curves were measured using a MicroSense EZ9 Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM) for 3 different mount orientations of the sample on the sample holder to explore the magnetic anisotropy of the 3D Printed Nylon Strontium Ferrite Composites.

Why is it important?

To understand how the magnetic field-assisted additive manufacturing (MFAAM) process influences the magnetic anisotropy of strontium ferrite bonded magnets.


This publication provides a scientific explanation of the magnetic performance of anisotropic strontium ferrites bonded magnets. It enables readers to understand the principles of fabricating bonded magnets via twin screw extrusion technology and the effect of magnetic field-assisted 3D printing on the anisotropic nature of the bonded magnets.
