The World's First Magnetic Printer

Andy Keane, Polymagnet Correlated Research




Two fundamentally new technologies from Correlated Magnetics Research change what's possible with magnets. The first is the discovery of new, patented magnetic behaviors that conventional magnet designers call "impossible". CMR Polymagnets attach with incredibly high strength, flip from repel to attract and magically align at a single spot showcase just a few of these new behaviors. And to make creating and manufacturing these behaviors practical, CMR invented the world's first magnetic printer. This new, software-driven magnetizer "imprints" these behaviors onto any magnet - transforming ordinary magnets from simple repel and attract into unique and valuable functions.
