American Resources Corporation’s ReElement Technologies Investment and Offtake Partner Advanced Magnet Lab Inc. Receives Notice of Allowance for Patent for Novel Method of Manufacturing Permanent Magnets with Powder-in-Tube Process

Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc. (AML) has developed a novel and innovative approach to manufacturing magnets that contain both rare earth and non-rare earth elements

FISHERS, IN / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2023 / American Resources Corporation (NASDAQ:AREC) ("American Resources" or the "Company"), a next generation and socially responsible supplier of rare earth and critical elements, carbon and advanced carbon materials to the new infrastructure and electrification marketplace, today celebrates AML's announcement that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has provided a notice of allowance for a pending patent application covering magnets manufactured by a "powder-in-tube" process.

This breakthrough technology, called PM-Wire™, takes a new approach for the design, manufacture and optimized performance of permanent magnets and their end-use applications.

Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc - PM-WIRE

PM-Wire™ enables for the manufacturing of permanent magnets at high volume, high yield, low cost and with better flexibility in shapes and magnetization direction as compared to conventionally manufactured magnets that require a significant amount of labor and present challenges with scaling commercially in a regulated environment outside of regions such as China.

Furthermore, PM-Wire™ can enable the use of lower cost rare earth and non-rare earth materials, while improving the performance and lowering the cost of the end-use products such as motors.

Mark Senti, CEO of AML commented, "In AML's process, we fill tubes with magnet alloy powders which are then reduced to the ideal packing density, cross-section and shape in a fully automated process. Magnet sizes can be very long, their shapes can be curved, rings or helical. Additionally, we have propriety tools and methods for magnetization, which provide an ideal magnetic flux distribution, including a continuously changing magnetization. Much like a Halbach array - but better. It is also very low cost to manufacture and super easy to assemble into a motor."

Chris Moorman, CMO of reElement Technologies commented, "Having offtake partners such as AML which are creating innovative domestic magnet solutions is a game changer for national security and creating the necessary domestic supply chain needed for the electrification economy. We are excited to continue to work with AML to meet their feedstock needs."
