CONTENT Inside this Issue: FEATURES & COLUMNS 6 What the Heck Happened to the Magnet Industry? 8 An Introduction to Resonant Inductive Power Transfer 30 Spontaneous Thoughts: Small Ball page 4 page 13 Thirty years ago, the US permanent magnet industry was flourishing and full of excitement. A new exciting magnet material had just been announced and everyone was energized with anticipated growth opportunities for the industry. Some magnet producers were lining up to pay millions of dollars for the rights to manufacture sintered NdFeB magnets! Dozens of magnet producers and distributors were enjoying a vibrant and profitable business environment. But today's permanent magnet industry has changed remarkably. With the growing number of personal electronic devices that the average person is constantly relying on, wireless power transfer is becoming an essential mechanism to keep batteries charged at all times. Moreover, thanks to the intrinsic isolation that this technology provides, today's manufacturers can design more robust, fully enclosed and even water-proof electronic products. Magnetic resonance can be used to engineer wireless power transfer systems with some attractive features. Small Ball is a managerial strategy used in the game of baseball. Fundamentally, it concedes that in some circumstances big plays, such as home runs are unlikely, and instead focuses on taking a series of smaller steps in an effort to score just a few runs and ultimately win the game. In Small Ball, singles, walks, sacrifice flies, bunts, etc. are the main ingredients for success. Maybe one run scores in an inning, maybe not. However, under the right circumstances, this strategy can be very effective. In short, Small Ball relies on skill, finesse and resourcefulness, rather than brute force to be successful.
