What magnets are used in packaging systems?

Magnets play an important role in packaging systems, ensuring reliable product delivery and complying with rigorous quality control processes that are constantly evolving.

In fact, magnets in packaging systems are part of unique solutions that enable both the customer and the end user to receive reliable products. Packaging manufacturers and designers, as well as marketing agencies, have unanimously adopted magnets as their first choice when packaging products.

Magnets, in packaging systems, are mainly used in package closures. That is to say, to assure the packing or packed, magnets are placed that allow a closing the box that assures that the product will be inside it.

What type of magnets are used in packaging systems?

Packaging magnetic closures are made with neodymium magnets, one of the most powerful rare earth magnets, which add a high level of quality feel, while providing a solution that is easy to integrate, open and close, reliable and predictable, with wear-free performance.

What type of magnets are used in packaging systems?

Neodymium magnets are strong and compact magnetic materials, available with and without adhesive backing. Neodymium magnets used in packaging systems are nickel coated to protect against corrosion and provide maximum operating temperatures of 176ºF for standard magnets. Higher temperature resistance is possible with this type of magnet.

These neodymium magnets are usually magnetized conventionally through the thickness. Achieving perfect alignment in magnetism applications requires facing opposite poles.

In what type of packaging can magnets be used?

Magnets in packaging systems are commonly used in packaging projects:

  • Products for personal use.

  • Cosmetic products.

  • Materials for specialized marketing.

  • CD, DVD and other electronic products.

  • Bags and handbags.

  • Some kind of industrial machinery and solutions.

  • Products of the food sector.

The incorporation of magnets in packaging systems allows cost savings, precisely in the assembly of tools during the integration with the package. Whether clearly visible or completely hidden from view, magnets offer almost unlimited potential for creating a durable, reusable high-end package that carries the company's brand far beyond the initial purchase of the product.

The use of magnets in packaging systems is increasing. There are many advantages and they are being exploited by creative designers and manufacturing companies.

Where can we find magnets in packaging?

It is very probable that, in a television package, that contains inside a remote control or, in another case, some product that integrates the software in a CD or others with cables contains inside the packing system a neodymium magnet.

In this case, for example, the box may contain small magnets that are integrated into the cover, while other steel lenses are incorporated into the latch to ensure that the reusable package opens and closes.

A good packaging design provides an airtightness that is key to the final quality of the product. This closure is transparent, secure and capable of unlimited action without significant change in performance. At IMA we manufacture magnets that simplify and optimize the design and implementation of a package closure. According to physical specifications and aesthetic design requirements, magnets aim to optimize package performance effectively.
