What are the magnetization directions of the magnets? The following is a schematic diagram of the magnetization direction of the permanent magnet. When you do not know or the description is unclear, you can refer to the following figure and circle the type of magnetization you want.

Magnetization direction

The above picture is a schematic diagram of the common magnetization directions of magnets in the shape of circle, ring, square (rectangle), cylinder, arc, etc.

Axial magnetization, that is, the north and south poles (the strongest magnetic surface) are on the two end faces of the magnet. The magnets that can be magnetized axially include circular magnets, cylindrical magnets, and ring magnets.

Radial magnetization: The north and south poles are on the side of the magnet, and the side has the strongest magnetism. The magnets that can be magnetized radially include circular magnets, cylindrical magnets, ring magnets, and arc magnets.

Multi-pole magnetization: that is, there are multiple NS poles on one surface, which can be axial multi-pole, radial multi-pole, or oblique angle multi-pole magnetization.
