High grade magnets are more expensive than low grade magnets, so choosing the most suitable magnet will also reduce the purchase cost a lot. For example, to find a magnet with balanced size and tension, you may need to work through a variety of magnets with different sizes and properties, but by getting help from a experienced magnet supplier directly, it may be possible to reduce the testing process of many magnet prototypes and speed up product development.
Ordering magnets from China also requires consideration of how the magnets will be shipped. Permanent magnets, especially NdFeB magnets, are very strong, which increases the difficulty of transportation. However, after the magnetic insulation packaging treatment, and after passing the outer box magnetic testing by professional testing organization, they can be shipped by sea, air and express like other goods.
The magnet itself is heavy, and after anti-magnetic packaging, the weight increases even more. It is recommended to ship the goods over 100kg by sea, so that the shipping cost will be cheaper. The final choice of shipping method requires a combination of two factors: delivery time and shipping cost.
Moreover, we need to consider the tariff of each country. In addition to import tariff in EU, there is also 19% VAT. You need to consult your local freight forwarder for details. The rates of duty in USA is 2.1%, and the HS code for magnets is 8505.11.00, which can be checked on the HTS Search website.
