Modeling Permanent Magnets and Magnetic Latches with A Comprehensive Ansys Solution

Magnetic latches play a vital role in today's consumer electronics, industrial and automotive applications. Simulation of permanent magnets in latching devices, using Ansys Maxwell, helps engineers predict magnetic forces and understand the magnetic field distribution and stray flux.

Further, design engineers can realize cost savings and improve the performance of magnetic latches by setting up magnet sizing and material studies in Ansys Maxwell. We'll explore critical design aspects, such as saturation in ferromagnetic materials, advanced magnetic capabilities including magnetization/demagnetization, temperature dependence, vector hysteresis modeling, and complex kinematics/impact prediction.
