Tier-2 Supplier Reports: Overview of Advances in Rare Earth Permanent Magnet Materials Technology that Improve Motor and Generator Performance and Reduce Rare Earth Content


Dent’s 25 year background in magnetics began in engineering for a subsidiary of Intermagnetics General Corporation in closed and open cycle cryogenic refrigerators supporting low and high temperature superconductive magnets for MRI, semiconductor and research applications. He was National Sales Manager for Lakeshore Cryotronics, specializing in cryogenic and magnetic measurement instrumentation and systems. As Business Development Manager at Everson Tesla, Bethlehem, PA, Dent managed select projects and marketing and sales of large, high field, specialty coil wound resistive and superconducting magnets and systems. Since joining EEC in 2003, Dent has led the company’s business development efforts in rare earth magnets and their applications, including commercialization and applications development of government sponsored research. Dent has co-authored numerous papers on superconducting magnets for particle accelerators, quasi-continuous magnets, magnetically confined fusion power program components, rare earth permanent magnet materials, design and applications. He has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Lehigh University from 1981.
