Hitachi Licensed Neodymium Magnet

Mitigating Legal Risks: The Vitality of Hitachi Licensed NdFeB Magnets for Tech Companies Exporting to USA and Japan

Introduction: Licensed Neodymium Magnet

Neodymium magnets were invented by Japanese and American independently in 1980s. After four decades, hundreds of patents related to manufacturing process and material composition are still valid and owned by Hitachi Metal Ltd. (HML). Up to 2016, HML still owned over six-hundred valid patents directly related to sintered neodymium magnets. These patents comprise both component and process patents spanning the entire manufacturing process for neodymium magnet products.

Who Needs Licensed Neodymium Magnet and Why?

In the USA and Japan, large corporations that use neodymium magnets typically only source their magnets from Hitachi-licensed manufacturers, either directly or indirectly. This is due to the potential legal risks of using unlicensed magnets. Hitachi patented product certificates are a critical issue for these companies, and their legal departments will want to ensure that their neodymium magnets are sourced from one of the Hitachi-patent holders to avoid potential lawsuits. 

At Tengye, we understand the importance of sourcing Hitachi-licensed neodymium magnets, and can provide a Hitachi license certificate for our neodymium magnets and magnetic assemblies upon request, to give our customers peace of mind.

Tengye's Partnership with licensed NdFeB Magnet Manufacturers

While Tengye is not included in the list of Hitachi-authorized NdFeB manufacturers, we have established strong partnerships with Ningbo Jinji and Ningbo Yunsheng. This allows us to supply Hitachi-licensed neodymium magnets to our customers. Upon request, we can provide a Hitachi license certificate for our neodymium magnets and magnetic assemblies that contain neodymium magnets. Our commitment to providing high-quality products and excellent customer service means that you can trust us to meet your magnet needs, including Hitachi-licensed NdFeB magnets.
