Technical information

Permanent magnets are used in almost all industrial sectors. Many of our customers, for example in the robotics, pharmaceutical, automotive or aerospace industries, have strict requirements which can only be satisfied by having a high level of quality control.

Our Company supplies security-linked products which demand the fulfilment of exacting criteria and measures. Good product quality is the result of detailed planning and processes. To fulfill the requirements and expectations of our customers, we have established a quality system according to the directives of the international standard EN ISO 9001:2000.

A strict control of raw materials and suppliers carefully selected for their quality and high levels of chemical, physical and technical materials controls, ensure the use of raw materials of the highest quality.

Statistical process controls, as well as materials controls, are carried out with the help of modern software systems. A safe and effective product manufacturing process is thereby guaranteed. Product despatch inspections are carried out according to the DIN 40 080 standard.

High quality technical advice and products of high quality guarantee that we can comply with customer requirements to a complete satisfaction.

Our staff are highly qualified and our facilities include a special R&D department, where, with testing and control equipment, we can obtain a wide range of information, characteristics, magnetic curves and values, etc., for our products.

It is the aim of this section to assist readers in understanding better the terminology used. There follows a wide range of information concerning the different magnetic materials, geometric variations, tolerances, magnetic adhesion force, magnetisation direction and orientation, types of magnet and a dictionary of technical terms and definitions.

IMA works day-to-day with compromise and responsibility to ensure products with high levels of quality.
