Demagnetizing is a mark of quality which gives us a competitive advantage.
Pierre Curie discovered that metals completely lose their ferromagnetic properties if heated above a certain temperature (“Curie Point”). During cooling an amorphous, neutral magnetic structure of domains (Weiss domains) and Bloch walls is formed. Another good example of this ideal magnetic state is a forged part.
The Maurer-Degaussing® method is the most thorough and effective non-thermal demagnetizing method and neutralizes ferromagnetic material virtually completely. Measurements have demonstrated that our method retains the same advantageous magnetic “self-healing” effect as a forged component. Our method comes close to the ideal magnetic state. This is why we describe components demagnetized using our method as “curiezed”.
