Cylinder/ Rod Magnets

Rod and Cylinder magnets are a shape of magnet which has a larger height than diameter. This means the magnets are ‘longer’ comparative to ordinary Neodymium disc magnets. Since the magnetic field arches from one pole to the other, the gauss (magnetic density) is greater which makes them ideal applications in Hall Effect sensors. 

These properties also make them ideal for use in engineering, manufacturing, research and DIY. 

Cylinder Magnets FAQs

How quickly will I receive my order?

All orders placed before 1pm (Monday – Friday excluding bank holidays) are dispatched on the same day. All parcels go through several stages of quality inspection before dispatch to ensure items are exactly as expected. The delivery time is dependent on the shipping method chosen and the estimated time of arrival will be shown on your order. Unfortunately, we have no control over the speed of freight but we can assure you, items are dispatched within 24 business hours. If you have any questions, please reach out to us and a member of our friendly team will be happy to help. Our opening hours are 9:00am – 17:00pm, Monday – Friday. 

What are cylinder magnets often used for?

Cylinder or rod neodymium magnets have a larger magnetic field due to their longer length. This means the distance between each pole is greater, thus having a greater gauss or magnetic density.

This quality makes them ideal for applications where larger magnetic fields are required, such as reed switches or hall effect sensors. Alternatively, they’re commonly used for fitting into a drilled hole, allowing the magnet to sit flush with a surface. 

Are they axially or diametrically magnetised?

All off-the-shelf cylinder magnets are axially magnetised by standard, unless otherwise specified on the product page. 

We also offer custom manufactured magnets which means we can produce diametrically magnetised magnets if that is a requirement.
