Niron Magnets for the Loudspeaker Industry

Niron Magnetics Magnet

Salvador Consultant, Niron Magnetics, and Menlo Scientific have analyzed the use of Niron Magnets for loudspeakers. We analyzed and optimized different magnetic structures to approach the benefits of different iron nitride magnets. The optimized structures were compared to conventional loudspeakers with ferrite and neo magnets, resulting in significant material and weight savings

Magnet Press for Production of Neo Magnets

Gasbarre Company with the consultancy support of Salvador Consultant has designed, manufactured, and tested the first magnet powder press to produce neodymium magnets in the United States. The magnet press was designed for the pressing process of neodymium magnet powder under a uniform magnetic field produced by a powerful DC electromagnet with an optimized magnetic circuit. This magnet press will be employed to produce sintered neodymium magnets for the US industry

Magnetic floor pattern

An American Construction Company with the consultancy support of Salvador Consultant verified the static magnetic field distribution produced by magnetic floors utilized in the Construction Industry. Magnetic floor customers were asking about the possible magnetic field issues produced by magnetic floors, especially in electronic components and pacemakers. Salvador Consultant certified that the magnetic floors are safe and can be utilized without any side effects on credit cards, electronic devices, and pacemakers

Magnet Assembly for Audio Product

A start-up electronics/audio company received assistance from Salvador Consultant in redesigning a permanent magnet assembly for an audio recording product. The product was equipped with powerful magnets for attaching purposes, but the static magnetic field generated by these magnets was causing noise in the recording signal during operation. A new permanent magnet design was proposed and optimized to reduce the magnetic field in the product and nullify it in the PCB region, effectively solving the noise signal issue

Pumps Actuators

Actuator

Salvador Consultant optimized electromagnetic solenoid actuators for a large US pump company. They designed proportional and convectional solenoids to produce high magnetic forces for short strokes. The magnetic circuit was optimized for each actuator to achieve the desired forces. Real tests were conducted on prototypes to verify the designs.

Overhead Electromagnet

Salvador Consultant supported a mechanical consulting firm in designing and optimizing a DC overhead electromagnet for magnetic separation in various industries. The electromagnet produces a high magnetic field and force index for extracting iron magnetic particles.

Traction Motor with New Magnetic Technology

Traction Motor

Salvador Consultant aided a US motor company in creating the first prototype of a traction motor using Parallel Path Magnetic Technology (PPMT). This technology combines permanent magnet and reluctance motors to increase torque. The motor was built and tested in the US, producing high torque with low currents and high efficiency compared to conventional permanent magnet motors used in EVs. This technology has the potential to reduce the weight and size of traction motors

New Traction Motor with Zero-Rare-Earth Magnets

In 2023, Tesla Company revealed during its Investor Day that their upcoming permanent magnet electric motors for EVs would not contain any rare earth materials (link). Despite concerns that this may result in a heavier and less efficient motor, the MotorXP team and Salvador Consultant explored the possibility of designing a zero-rare-earth motor that maintains Tesla's high standards of efficiency and power density
