When it comes to marketing display, packaging or manufacturing industries, aren’t we all looking for a little closure? Designers are constantly struggling with creating innovative and attractive display designs that are also functional and reliable. So how do they create sleek looking, unique designs that will stand up over the test of time? Small, powerful, rare earth magnets, also known as neodymium magnets, are a designer’s dream for a variety of reasons:
RARE EARTH MAGNETS ARE RELIABLE
Neodymium magnets pack a lot of holding power in a very thin, compact size magnet. Neodymium magnets are generally nickel coated to protect against corrosion, although you can get them in a number of different finishes depending on what you desire for your project. The beauty of using neodymium magnets as closures is that they never wear out. Another advantage to using rare earth magnets in closures is that they line up every time, without fail, thus providing a perfect, seamless closure.
RARE EARTH MAGNETS ARE COST-EFFECTIVE
Neodymium magnets come in all different shapes, sizes and strengths so you are bound to find one that fits your project and your price point. Most standard size neodymiums are fairly inexpensive, especially when ordered in larger quantities. They give your project that high-end feel, without the high-end cost. Using rare earth magnets offers you different options that can also help you cut costs. For example, instead of using two magnets as a set in a closure, you may be able to use one magnet and a magnetic receptive disk. The latter, offers a much more cost-effective closure, which provides the same end result.
Depending on your application, you may choose to use magnets with a pre-applied adhesive, or you may decide to go with plain magnets as a cost saving measure if you can forego the convenience of an adhesive in your application.
RARE EARTH MAGNETS PRODUCE ATTRACTIVE DESIGN
Using neodymium magnets in packaging and closures is much more aesthetically pleasing than snaps, buttons, adhesive or Velcro. Often times, the magnets are never even seen, as they are so powerful they can be imbedded and concealed within the packaging, leaving the packaging with a sleek look free of a distracting closure that takes away from the product, while offering a strong foundation. Magnets offer an elegant look and feel to packaging that is second to none.
