Cone magnets produce a concentrated magnetic field on the tip compared to the base. Due to their shape, they are used within medical research and more commonly for glass wipe boards where they provide a clean and professional hold for documents and information.
Cone-shaped magnets have one large face often described as the base, and one small face often described as the tip, and are generally magnetised with their north and south poles on these faces.
The tapered, conical shape produces a concentrated and more intense magnetic field on the tip compared to the base. This makes them particularly sought after for medical and research applications but also other applications where the maximum magnetic performance is required from a small pole face. An everyday use for cone magnets is on glass wipe boards as the concentrated magnetic field produced at the tip easily penetrates the thickness of glass to the steel backing board and the cone-shape makes them easy to handle and reposition.
