    Overview

     
    Cogent Power's non-oriented fully processed electrical steels enable our customers to use electrical steels with the best magnetic properties and coatings, confident in the knowledge that the materials are supported by reliable delivery and strong technical support.

    Non-oriented electrical steels between 0.10 mm and 1.00 mm thick are critical in the manufacturing of rotating machines of all sizes, as well as in small transformers and a variety of other electromagnetic applications. Their magnetic properties are combined with tailored insulation coatings which offer the best performance required for the manufacturing process and final application.

    The final annealing refines the final magnetic properties after which the bespoke insulation coating is applied.

    Our in house sliting and cutting lines make it possible to supply our materials in bespoke widths and lengths.

    We have partnerships with several local companies within the Nordic Power Components network which allow us to serve our customers with laser cut laminations and stamped laminations.

    Outside of our broad offering in conventional non-oriented electrical steels, we also have thin gauge grades that are especially designed for high frequency applications.

    Non-oriented electrical steel

    Non-oriented electrical steels are critical in the manufacture of:

    • rotating machines of all sizes
    • small transformers
    • a variety of other electromagnetic applications

    The magnetic properties of these steels are combined with tailored insulation coatings - offering the best performance required for the manufacturing process and final application.

    Our product range also includes:

    • Ultra-thin gauge grades - offering the superior performance required for high-frequency applications
    • HP-grades for applications where improved permeability is of importance

    A recent addition to our product portfolio are grades with guaranteed mechanical strength.

     



    New coatings combine performance with environmental benefits

    At Cogent we believe that an environmentally responsible company is a successful company.  We ensure that our materials are produced in a safe and environmentally-friendly environment. This duty of care is carried forward into our products and their application. That’s why we offer:

    • chrome-free phosphate insulation coating. This coating is applied to our entire grain-oriented product range. It eliminates the risks from hexavalent chrome and delivers a superior insulation coating which is safe and environmentally friendly.
    • Suralac 7000FF – a formaldehyde-free, organic coating. This ensures a clean working environment in application, free from potentially hazardous fumes.

    Our new bonded coating, Suralac 9000, is now available for our thin gauge products. This coating may be heated to enable lamination stacks to bond together. This type of bonding delivers improved noise performance for large volume production of thin materials. It is compatible with other traditional insulation coatings.

    Reliable performance

    Electrical steels play a vital role in the generation, transmission, distribution and use of electrical power. They are one of the most important magnetic materials produced today. We supply a wide range of processed grain-oriented and non-oriented electrical steels. Our quality-assured electrical steels deliver:

    • consistent magnetic performance
    • excellent delivery performance

    We also offer new coatings that combine performance with environmental and safety benefits. We have extensive in-house knowledge and experience of electrical steels and their applications.

    Customer benefits

    At Cogent, we understand how flexibility and speed contribute to the success of our customers in today’s marketplace. It means we can deliver supply chain benefits of processed electrical steel supplied locally and fully supported by the manufacturing mill.

    Our responsive approach enables customers to:

    • act quickly to win business
    • keep stocks low
    • operate as efficiently as possible

    Innovative solutions for improved efficiency

    As the global consumption of electricity continues to rise, our focus is to deliver innovative solutions to support improved efficiencies in the generation, transmission and consumption of electricity.

    The delivery of a consistently highly-efficient electrical steel is essential to maintaining high-performing generators, transformers and motors in their final application. We ensure the high performance of our materials throughout their application life cycle through:

    • the reliable quality of the insulation coatings we apply to our electrical steels
    • maintenance of exact tolerances

    Hi-Lite thin gauge products


    Our Hi-Lite thin gauge products significantly reduces losses at higher frequencies compared to normal gauge electrical steels. Opening a whole new array of design and application possibilities for your business.
    The product range also includes the thin gauge grades, which offer the superior performance required for high frequency applications, and HP-grades for applications where improved permeability is of importance. Another recent addition to our product portfolio are our grades with guaranteed mechanical strength.

    Total Cost of Ownership drivers:
    • Light weighting: Same performance with less steel
    • Space: Same performance with less space
    • Assistance: Engineering data & assistance for durability-design available
    Key Application Areas:
    • Automotive (H) EV vehicles
    • Aviation
    • Power tools
    • Household appliances (Vacuum cleaners)
    • Transformers
    • Filters
    • Industrial high speed motors
    • Magnetic bearings
    • High speed pumps and compressors
    Cogent offer the widest range of thin gauge electrical steels in the market. These thin materials give lower losses at higher magnetisation frequencies and in Hybrid Electric Vehicles this offers the same efficiency and torque with a smaller and lighter weight motor.
    As these products are typically used at higher rotational speeds please find a below an overview of guaranteed and typical losses also at higher frequencies (400 &2500).

    Technical specification


    Cogent Power's electrical steels are manufactured to the most demanding requirements and meet global standards for electrical steel.
    Our products are subject to rigorous quality control procedures throughout their manufacture to ensure their technical specifications are consistently produced.

    Electrical steel grades are designated according to guaranteed maximum specific total loss at a peak magnetic polarisation of 1.5 T and 50Hz.
