Soft Magnetic Composites (SMC) are pressed and thermally-treated powder metal components with 3D magnetic properties. SMC materials are composed of encapsulated iron powder particles that are compacted to form uniform isotropic components with complex shapes in a single step. The use of these materials makes innovative electrical machine designs technologically viable.
At Symmco We Offer Somaloy®
Somaloy® makes it possible to design innovative, compact and powerful electric motors. With Somaloy® it is possible for motor designers to build an electric motor to suit its application – instead of restricting the application to the motor’s limitations! The secret is the unique 3D properties of the Somaloy® components. Using Somaloy® it becomes possible to define a magnetic field in three dimensions, and create improved or even entirely new machine concepts.
(Claw Pole and Linear Tubular Pole motors)
Potential size/weight reduction
Fewer parts and ease of assembly through elimination of laminate stacks
Higher Fill Factor
Yields increased power density
Fast Switching Actuators and
Faster actuation (up to 50%)
Somaloy® materials offer a unique combination of magnetic saturation and low eddy current losses. Consequently, they are uniquely positioned, over-bridging traditional materials such as ferrites and electrical steel sheets. Somaloy® materials can successfully be used from line frequency to 100 kHz.
