Currently, most of the powerful neodymium magnets in electric vehicle motors are manufactured by compacting powders into rough shapes that can be further refined. The 3DREMAG project has developed a powder that can be 3D-printed into the shape required for final application.

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is leading a European consortium developing a new material for printing rare earth magnets used in a wide array of modern products – high-performance motors in electric vehicles and e-bikes, wind turbines and generators, medical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and high-fidelity speakers are just a few of the applications for these powerful permanent...
