In the past 73 years, Magnetic Metals has grown from a company that originally made nickel-iron transformer laminations for the U.S. military’s World War II telecommunications needs, to a major supplier of components for industries producing and using today’s most advanced electronics. During that time, we have acquired the experience, technical expertise and production capability to make us one of the most competitive producers in our industry.
For example, our patented thin-gauge stamping technology is one of the reasons we are able to achieve the lowest-distortion laminations in our field. By producing thicknesses of anywhere from .0005 to .125 inches with required flatness and minimal burr, we guarantee improved effectiveness and greatly reduced losses, more than meeting EISA efficiency standards for general purpose, three-phase AC industrial motors. In fact, our ability to attain thin and precision gauges ensures that a wide range of industries reach critical dimensional and weight requirements for their motor laminations, and tape wound toroidal and tape wound cut cores.
