Lake Shore to discuss measurement solutions at Magnetics 2014 conference

Lake Shore will be exhibiting at the Magnetics 2014 conference Jan. 29–30 in Orlando, Fla., where representatives will discuss the company’s magnetic measurement solutions for research and manufacturing environments.

Lake Shore representatives will specifically explain how its Hall probe technology can be used to accurately measure magnetic fields in lab or assembly/quality control (QC) applications, and they will provide guidance on how to choose the right measurement equipment for challenging environments.

Lake Shore’s product portfolio includes a complete line of benchtop and hand-held Hall effect gaussmeters; axial, transverse, tangential, and multi-axis Hall probes; fluxmeters; Helmholtz and search coils; electromagnets; and electromagnet power supplies. Lake Shore gaussmeters have been used in prominent magnetics research, such as MIT’s nuclear fusion program, as well as by manufacturers who produce magnets, magnetic assemblies, and accessories that must hold to tight tolerances.

Lake Shore magnetic measurement instruments can be used for a wide range of applications, including: validating performance of solenoids, confirming magnetic field characteristics versus applied current, mapping a magnetic field shape for a component or assembly, measuring fringe fields or residual fields, and sorting tested products into groups according to magnetic strength and other characteristics. Accurate testing, when done early in the manufacturing or assembly process, can help companies avoid costly rework at later stages of production.

Conference attendees can also learn about Lake Shore’s alternating gradient magnetometer (AGM) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) systems for more advanced magnetic materials characterization, including its MicroMag™ 2900 Series AGM and 3900 Series VSM , as well as its 7400 Series VSM.

The AGM/VSM systems are used to characterize the DC magnetic properties of materials as a function of magnetic field, temperature, and time, and can be the best option when a direct measurement of magnetic moment is required. They also enable the measurement of first-order-reversal-curve (FORC) measurements for investigating magnetic interactions in nanocomposite magnets, recording media, nanomagnetic wires and dots, and paleomagnetic materials.
