Pressed magnets are generally characterised by significantly higher magnetic values. This is primarily due to the fact that a higher degree of filling, as a ratio of magnetic powder to binder (thermosetting plastic), can be realised. In the pressing process, magnets, preferably NdFeB magnets with simple geometries, yet with quite narrow geometric tolerances, can be produced at low cost. If necessary, pressed magnets can also be mechanically reworked, for example, by sanding down in order to narrow the tolerances still further. Depending on requirements, subsequent coatings can be applied for better resistance to various media, corrosion and other environmental influences. Depending on customer requirements, these mostly isotropically manufactured magnets are magnetised in a subsequent processing step.
