Electromobility will continue to be a megatrend for decades to come, as companies seek to realize the vision of electric cars that efficiently offer comparable or even lower costs, energy use, and CO₂emissions than today’s combustion engines.
Until that time, manufacturers are under extreme pressure to come up with diverse—albeit temporary—hybrid solutions and to bring them to market quickly and economically.
To enable this, suppliers require new components and applications with electromagnetic properties and functions. This is a key part of ensuring that the hybrid technology is flexible and economically viable enough to act as a useful temporary solution until fully electric transportation is possible.
Electromagnetic components do not always call for the use of high-alloy electrical steel strip.
High-alloy electrical steel strip offers a range of metallurgical features as standard (and included in the cost) that in some cases may not be required for the application.
This is precisely where the opportunities lie for electromagnetic applications using an unalloyed, tailor-made material of our design that takes into account manufacturing processes, effective quality management, and ongoing innovation, as well as investments in plant technology.
