PM-Wire is a unique process for the design, manufacturing, and application of permanent magnets.
Higher efficiency, lighter, smaller, higher temperature operation.
Long-length, rings, helixes, and much more.
Performance equivalent to magnets using higher cost materials.
High-rate, high-yield manufacturing with domestically sourced materials.
AML has the experience to take an idea and design to prototype. Our facility includes capabilities for design, testing, and prototyping from magnet concept to a prototype.
Features include reduced weight, optimized performance, and ease of manufacturing and assembly.
Novel assembly of permanent magnets with proprietary magnetization.
Our Technology Roadmap
Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc. (AML) was founded in 1995 as a research and development lab to develop magnet technology for particle accelerator applications. AML has since expanded through various programs across a number of applications in aerospace, renewable energy, transportation, and medical. For almost 30 years, AML has sought the 'holy grail' and today PM-Wire presents that opportunity for the world.
