  • Patent number: 10867729
    Abstract: Provided is a method for producing a sintered body that forms a rare-earth permanent magnet, has a single sintered structure and an arbitrary shape, and has easy magnetization axis orientations of different directions applied to the magnet material particles in a plurality of arbitrary regions. This method forms a three-dimensional first molded article from a composite material formed by mixing a resin material and magnet material particles containing a rare-earth substance. The first molded article is then subjected to a deforming force and a second molded article is formed in which the orientation direction of the easy magnetization axis of the magnet material particles in at least the one section of the horizontal cross-section is changed to a direction which differs from the orientation direction of the first molded article. The second molded article is heated to a sintering temperature and kept at the temperature for a period of time.
