Our Hiperco® alloys provide the highest magnetic induction of any commercially available soft magnetic material while exhibiting high permeability and low core loss. These iron-cobalt alloys offer nearly 25% higher induction and 30% lower losses than conventional electrical steel and are available in thicknesses from 0.1 to 0.5mm. We work with customers to tailor mechanical properties based on their application needs.
Hiperco alloys are used in motors and generators to achieve a combination of maximum torque density and the lowest losses. They offer significantly higher power and torque density as compared to conventional electric steels. They help improve motor efficiency and typically reduce the size and weight of the motor or generator.
Hiperco alloys also work as flux concentrators in electromagnetic pole pieces for different high flux applications, such as audio voice coils and medical radiology. These alloys are also used in actuators, specialty transformers, magnetic bearing applications.
