I bet you didn’t know that magnets are an integral part of electric guitars, right?
Underneath the strings, there are one or more magnets wrapped in a very thin wire. This creates a magnetic field that passes up through the strings and when those strings vibrate, they make a small electric current that travel to an amplifier to produce sound.
So, the next time you listen to rock bands such as The Rolling Stones or Led Zeppelin, remember that their music would not have existed without the power of magnets.
Magnets are everywhere. From computer hard drives and screens to Maglev trains, appliances, credit cards, vending machines, industrial equipment and medical devices, magnets are an important part of life. And, last but not least, magnets may be an integral part of your industrial motor requirements.
