  • Patent number: 10546688
    Abstract: Provided is a method for producing a rare-earth magnet that can resolve a problem of deterioration of the residual magnetization and coercive force of the rare-earth magnet due to spring-back in producing the rare-earth magnet through performing hot deformation processing of upsetting on a sintered body. The method includes a first step of producing the sintered body through press-forming of magnetic powder for a rare-earth magnet, and a second step of producing a rare-earth magnet precursor through hot deformation processing of upsetting in which the sintered body is placed within a plastic processing mold and is pressurized in a predetermined direction so as to impart magnetic anisotropy to the sintered body, and performing cooling of the rare-earth magnet precursor while a predetermined pressure is kept being applied thereto in the predetermined direction, so that the rare-earth magnet is produced.
