Alnico

Definition of the noun Alnico

What does Alnico mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: alnicoes / alnicos

  1. An alloy of aluminium, nickel and cobalt (named for their chemical symbols Al, Ni and Co respectively), sometimes alloyed with smaller amounts of iron, copper, titanium and used primarily in the manufacture of magnets.

Explanation

Alnico is an acronym referring to a family of iron alloys which in addition to iron are composed primarily of aluminium, nickel and cobalt, hence al-ni-co. They also include copper, and sometimes titanium. Alnico alloys are ferromagnetic, with a high coercivity and are used to make permanent magnets. Before the development of rare earth magnets in the 1970s, they were the strongest type of magnet. Other trade names for alloys in this family are: Alni, Alcomax, Hycomax, Columax, and Ticonal.
