The main goal of our research is to minimize the generated waste associated with NdFeB based permanent magnet manufacturing and reduce the overall cost. One of the ways in which we can achieve this goal is by using additive manufacturing (AM) techniques to create complex geometries of bonded magnets. For bonded magnet production, it is desirable to maximize the magnetic particle loading to achieve optimum magnetic properties. In addition, high mechanical flexibility introduced by the polymer allows for the fabrication of various shapes thus providing versatility in design. In this work, we will talk about our efforts in identifying the minimum magnetic field necessary to align anisotropic NdFeB bonded magnets as well as high field preprocessing of inks to achieve magnetic anisotropy in the absence of fields. The information gained through this study will eventually help to minimize the energy expenditure during processing of bonded magnets.
