Electrical Steels: Non-Oriented
Non-oriented electrical steels are iron-silicon alloys in which magnetic properties are practically the same in any direction in the plane of the material. Standard grades are available, with the advantages of our proprietary DI-MAX? processing that enhance our product's magnetic properties. Material is available fully and semi-processed, depending on the grade.
DI-MAX grades have superior permeability at high inductions, low average core loss, and good gauge uniformity. In addition, cold finishing plus strip annealing produces a smooth surface resulting in excellent flatness and a high stacking factor. Applications include high-efficiency motors, large and small transformers, generators, lighting ballasts and ignition coils.
