Custom Magnet Applications in Medical Equipment

Magnets are highly advantageous in medical equipment. For devices such as MRI machines and insulin pumps, magnets have been responsible for achieving groundbreaking advancements in technology that would otherwise be impossible. Magnets are also valuable due to factors such as providing improved sterility for equipment, as permanent magnets can be used to affix components together for ingress protection. When magnets are hidden between sealed plastic or non-magnetic metal walls, they are protected from exposing a seam or grooves that would otherwise be at risk of collecting dirt and biological debris. Certain magnetic materials, such as samarium cobalt, are an excellent choice for medical devices that are sterilized using an autoclave machine, as they are able to resist the high temperatures they are exposed to in the process.
